STREET PERFORMERS IN the capital will become subject to a set of rules today, ensuring they provide quality entertainment to passers-by.

Dublin City Council has implemented a new code of practice which will limit noise volumes, introduce amp-free zones and demand a repertoire of at least 20 songs.

The times that buskers can perform will also be limited, with extended hours allowed at hot-spots such as Temple Bar and Grafton Street.

A major pull for visitors, buskers have become an intrinsic part of the city centre…so today we ask, do you enjoy watching street performers?
