Nelson Summer

Join us for an R18 cabaret night when the Buskers let down their hair for some serious hilarity. Restricted to adults only, some content might offend.

This year’s performers are:

Hero-san - Japan
An acrobat, breakdancer and gymnast. Herosan's otherworldly balancing, outrageous humour and chopstick skills will have audiences spellbound.

The Atari Show by El Goma - Argentina/Germany
Comedian and juggler.

Sara Twister - Australia/Germany
Contortionist and acrobatic archer. One of the only professional contortionists in the world who, whilst balancing on her arms, can fire a bow…with her feet! Ready. Aim. Fire!

The Silver Starlets - Canada
All-female aerial acrobatic show. Full of glam, glitz and glitter, the Starlets twist, tumble, bend, climb and fall.

Basketball Jones - New Zealand
Basketball freestyle and comedy juggling—ball skills like no other witnessed.

The Boathouse is one of three locations over four days. Trafalgar Street and the Church Steps are family-friendly, free events.

Follow and 'Like' the Nelson Buskers Festival Facebook page for updates. If wet, there will be an alternative indoor venue posted on Facebook.
