Street Performance Program

TasPorts Street Performance Program at the Port of Hobart aims to create more vibrant and appealing public spaces along Franklin Wharf by providing local musicians and artists with a free and safe place to perform.

Activating these under-utilised areas hopes to increase community enjoyment and use of the waterfront precinct.

The program allows performers holding a TasPorts permit to perform or 'busk' at designated times and in selected locations in the TasPorts area.
