Keep Streets Live is creating Vibrant Public Spaces

Keep Streets Live was set up by our founding director Jonny Walker after attempts to ban busking in Liverpool.

Our aim is to promote and protect public spaces for informal performances of music and the arts, whilst maintaining a minimal impact on other stakeholders, through voluntary codes of practice and dialogue.

Since our inception, our busking guidance has been successfully adopted in Liverpool, York, Birmingham and a number of other major cities in the United Kingdom. We are currently campaigning in Edinburgh against the erection of unlawful signs preventing busking, or limiting performances in a way that puts buskers in danger of arrest and threatens their livelihood.

We are also one of the leading groups campaigning against PSPO's in the UK which give arbitrary powers to criminalise not only buskers, but rough sleepers, dog walkers, skateboarders and a whole range of other diverse groups at the whim of a single council/police officer.

Keep Streets Live also aims to protect performers by educating them on their rights, and works closely with the Musicians' Union and Equity

Keep Streets Live Newsletter

Keep Streets Live album
$5 or more per month only 95 left

We compiled this fabulous album of UK buskers who've supported our campaigns.

No other album available so neatly ties together ballsy folk/punk, delicate singer/songwriters, robot-style looping, bluegrass and clog dancing. Eclectic and essential listening.

House Concert
$20 or more per month only 99 left

We'll find a suitable and talented artist to play a gig at your house, party, or any other location you choose.

As all money pledged goes to Keep Streets Live and performers give their time freely to support us we would ask that you make a collection towards their expenses and if possible provide food/accomodation if needed.

Busking Seminar
$100 or more per month only 10 left

We'll set up a busking seminar with our directors, performers and other relevant individuals for you and up to a dozen guests. You can set the agenda so it could be a legal workshop, busking advice session, social gathering with witty anecdotes and music, a mixture of all those or anything else you can think of. We would ask you to provide a suitable venue or to pay the costs of us hiring one ourselves.

Goals
$54 of $100 per month
This would allow Keep Streets Live to mount an effective Social Media campaign, providing funds to target and boost posts, making it possible to reach approximately 50,000 more potentially interested supporters every month.
