    So if anyone else is in Ireland this summer there are a couple different busking contests and/or festivals.

    one pays €3000.00

    there is another one in Letterkenny:

    Galway is a good busking place, although there is a general crackdown on busking, and travellers in Ireland in general lately. https://www.facebook.com/GalwayBuskersCommunity/

    It really is interesting to me how everywhere it seems like they are trying to get rid of people like us. Maybe I'm being myopic, but seriously...

    Coooool thanks ! I don't know if I'll be in Ireland this summer but it's definitely a good thing to know !
    As for busking, I found USA very easy. Don't ever come to France it's so shit. My best session was 15euros for one hour for what I consider a good quality performance (it's actually the best I've ever played in the street, and it would pay WAY more in canada for example)
