THIS FAIR DOES NOT PAY just so you know 11.Sep.2004 07:33

I feel this ad is deceiving and want to spare buskers from wasting time. This fair is apparently asking for buskers to come play FOR FREE for them! So know that! Yes, you can collect donations but that is assumed at a busker fair. I am sick of places that have money using street performers for FREE entertainment...fairs should at least pay travel costs for decent performers. This fair does little to nothing for the busker, just so that is clear. I notice they left the fact they are not paying out of their ad and I feel that was deceptive.

the ad is good and NOT misleading ! 13.Sep.2004 14:35


duh duh ! the ad is not deceiving at all. you always busk for free ! there is no such thing as getting money "beforehand" if you are doing that you are not a busker, you are a professional musician !So asking for money beforehand is not bsuking Kirsten !
