Hi! I'm a student home from college for the summer in Los Angeles, and I was just wondering: does anyone have any experience busking, especially in LA? Do you know if you need a permit to do so? Share your own stories, please! Any experience you had is something I can learn from somehow.

i don't think permits are needed but don't quote me on that. it wouldn't really make sense because it's not like a stand or anything...

Idk about where you are, but in Seattle I'm pretty sure you need permits most of the time, so I'd look into it

There's been a thread on this everyday since Friday. Surely someone should make a "Only Busking Thread"?

If the police pull you up on not having a permit, i weep for the world. It would be incredibly saddening to have a shitstorm of attrocities going on in the worl and the people getting ****ed are those on the street playing music.

Busking requires a permit. They aren't expensive, and they are easy to obtain. If you are busking and a police officer were to stop you, and you don't have a permit to show, they can not only ticket you, but take all the money you've earned. True fact, happened to me when I was sixteen.

I actually made an Only Busking Thread a while back. Didn't survive, but I didn't keep up on it.
