CHAPÉUS NA RUA – LISBON BUSKING FESTIVAL

On September 15, 16 and 17, the streets of downtown Lisbon will be filled with circus artists, with the new edition of the Chapéus na Rua – Lisbon Busking Festival. There will be jugglers, acrobats, clowns, puppets, live statues, improvised poetry, dance, theater, performance, music and lots of entertainment.

This festival promotes street art as a structural piece of urban artistic expression, breaking the paradigm of the street artist as a synonym for art of the poor – bypassing the walls of museums, galleries and large show halls. The goal is to bring to the public an art form that is above all human, upcoming and surprising.
