Unamplified musicians can perform without a permit on the Boardwalk between 10:00 am – 8:00 pm on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no fee for busking. Scheduled and permitted programming on the Boardwalk supersedes any busking or unscheduled performance. Buskers may be asked to leave if their performance is disruptive or violates the Boardwalk Plaza Rules.
Buskers may have a tip jar or signage for tips but shall not ask an individual, either verbally or by gesture, for an immediate distribution of money or anything of monetary value under City Ordinance (12-O-1324).
For performances using a sound device, such as an amplifier, speaker, boombox, megaphone, etc., a CAP/ADID permit is required. Please fill out the Boardwalk Application Form, if you are interested in a performance involving amplification.
