Hello,

I am planning on losing my busking virginity in Switzerland. Does anyone know what permits are required? I will be in Basel.

Many thanks,

Danny

The 2 links you provided are helpful in understanding the situation in that city.
Those are some pretty complex rules for buskers.
But they appear to be specificly related to musicians and as a response to large groups of noisy and poor quality musicians.
It would seem that:
* no permit is required
* and it reads like if you are presenting a performance that is not amplified and is actually entertaining and not upsetting people who live in the area that you may not be bothered.

I will be attending FISM next month and will be traveling through the UK, Ireland and parts of Europe late July and August and plan to do some busking along the way - I will see if I can make it to Basel and see how it works out.
I will be interested to hear how your busking goes.

Not just Basel but Luzern, Zürich, and others are following suit...

Can you recommend a good location? I was thinking next to the Rhein by the Mittelbrucke on the Claraplatz side.....though I am not sure that there will be many families there to get the party started. Marktplatz or Barfusser platz is also a possibility I suppose though rather scarier for a first timer!

Should anyone else be going Basel-wards I saw some buskers yesterday at the above location....they were good admittedly but no one moved them on.....indeed they were applauded, so the new regulations may not be particularly enforced...just there if they need them.
