Busker Abu  


Busk or Bust! A brand new studio talent show.

Above the roar of traffic and excited chattering in towns and cities across the country is the soundtrack of a city – The Street Buskers.

This format brings the best of the buskers together in one venue.

Each week 8 acts take to the stage playing for a place in the final and a major cash prize.

In front of a studio audience, they face 3 judges, each from busking backgrounds.

It’s a fast paced show where all the right buttons are pushed. The judges have 5 coins to "throw" at the acts.

Collect all 5 coins and its the buskers' chance at taking part in the sing off, fail and it’s back to the streets.

The judges argue with each other, the acts play to impress, the clock counts down and the studio audience love every minute!


This format ran for 13 episodes on TG4.

A second series is in discussion.
