Steven,

What the hell, man? You have huge music festivals in the west all summer long. People will pay to do something other than sit in an over crowded pub all day. The musicians won't tip, but the spectators sure will.

Me and a friend will try out Ströget in Coppenhagen this summer. Not much of a festival but anyway.

TBH I never really even thought about performing at one of these Mark. I wouldn't even know where to start. I've never done street magic before.

Cheers, Zack, just about to ask the same thing... details are what we need. I have never been to a festival before, and it would be great to try it.

Well, Steven, now's the time my friend . . . head to Miltown Malbay in mid-June (Willie Clancy week). . . bring your cups and a table and set up right in the middle of town. You'll learn fast. And you'll either love it or hate it. You'll never know til you get out there.

LOL... but I know nothing about street performing.

Do you do the trick once for a crowd and then pack up?
Do you do the same trick over and over again?
Should you have a good few different tricks that are easily visible (eg. cups and balls, linking rings etc.)?

I really know absolutely nothing about street performing.

Hmmmmm. . . uh. . . okay. . . read Gazzo, Cellini. . . then get out there and do it. Look, I'm still pretty darn new to all of this myself, but you'll never learn if you don't get out there.

Mark

PS So where are you in Ireland. I just got back from a week in Ennis.

I live up in Monaghan. It's next to the border with N. Ireland. It's a small enough town. Good few night clubs and pubs. Then again where in Ireland doesn't.

I'm going to the IBM Dublin convention at the end of the month so that will be my first interaction with other magicians. I'm really looking forward to it.

I've been back and forth over whether or not to get the three books by Gazzo on street work (the one-liners, cups and balls and krowd keeping). I suppose I should just buy them.

Go to Magicpitch.com and buy them. Also take a look at his lecture DVD which is an informal introduction to all things street.

Mark, do you have any details on the where and when these festivals are taking place. I've never been to one, but would love to try it out.

And you would do well to search this forum. It is full of answers to questions that you don't even know you should be asking yet. Smile

Every important topic is covered here somewhere.

It might be a little late to get officially booked for most of the upcoming Festivals. I'm not sure, really... We sent away show promo material two months ago, and most tend to confirm in April.
Certainly if you’re not based in Europe somewhere, you might have to do a fair few Festivals to come out with $$$$.

Doing mainly circle shows and am flying over that side of the world mid June.

CStreet,

I don't have a list, but if you go by an Irish tourist office they will. By the by, I'm not talking about being booked to perform but busking during the music festival.
