Cities Battle To Limit Street Musicians
To a lot of people hearing varieties of music on a street corner is one of the highlights of a community — a unique part of the character and feel, but a number of cities across the country and around the world have put limits on who can play and where they can play.
Tempe currently has restrictions on street music — or busking. Buskers may have a hat or bowl for collecting donations, but they don’t aggressively ask for money.
Tempe Councilman Joel Navarro spoke about changes he’d like to see, and Jonny Walker of the London-based “Keep Streets Live” spoke of battles over busking in the United Kingdom.
