  • Street Performers Bye-Laws

    Closing deadline for submissions in relation to the Draft Control of Street Performers Bye Laws fast approaching - 19th December.

    Dublin is famous for its music and busking tradition. Dublin City Council have drafted bye-laws to regulate busking in Dublin City to help make street performing a more positive experience for everyone.

    In recent years complaints around Street Performing to the City Council, An Garda Síochána and the various business representative organisations have increased significantly. The complaints mainly relate to loud continuous noise, obstruction of premises, busking taking place late at night disturbing city residents and intimidation by some performers soliciting donations, so the bye-laws are being put in place to help improve this situation.
