Take part in this year’s Letterkenny Busking Festival!


The Letterkenny Busking Festival will return to Letterkenny’s Main Street on 29th July.

Each year the annual competition sees all types of performers, battling it out to win the amazing cash prizes up for grabs. Performers and groups of all ages, sizes and talents are welcome to take part.

The Letterkenny Busking Festival has been an annual favourite amongst the town’s performers, residents, and businesses since it was first held in 2015. Each participant or group that takes part in the competition will be in with a chance of winning prizes from the €1000 prize fund.

“We’re delighted to announce the festival date this year.”, said Fionnuala Rabbitt, President of Letterkenny Chamber, who are organising the Busking Festival through its ShopLK Brand. “Last year’s was a huge success with some fantastic entertainers and this year we hope to make it even bigger and better. The busking festival brings entertainment, music and fun to the streets for the day. It complements the other festivals such as the Blues & Roots, Fleadh and makes Letterkenny attractive to visitors and local people. We know there will be tight competition for the top spot and the big winnings.”

ShopLK is all about enjoying the best shopping experience in Letterkenny and we want our regular customers and visitors to really enjoy what the town has to offer. This type of event that is funded through the Retail Promotion initiative from Donegal County Council makes happy shoppers and creates a real buzz.

Jimmy Stafford who Chairs the festival committee said “we are looking out for any entertainers from any genre to take part in the festival. In the past we’ve had dancers and magicians alongside all the music. The competition is open to all ages with great prizes on offer. But it’s also an opportunity to busk to all the people who come along for the day, have some fun and fill the Main Street area music.”

This exciting annual event brings various acts together to celebrate local and national talent.
