I'll be there in June, but I'm going with a group of dancers who have booked a theater, so technically I already have "permission" to be there as I'll be promoting their show.

From what I've heard (thanks to Werner Seitz and others) that although permits might be required, nobody seems to know where to get them, how much they are, or who to ask. As long as you're not a nuisance, nobody seems to bother you. The advice I got was just come and "do it." I guess I'll find out for myself how accurate this online advice is very soon.

I may be the only busker that knows exactly where to get them. But my advice to anyone planning a visit to Copenhagen would be to ignore it, and simply go to work.

The only official "trouble" I got into there was when a shop owner decide they also owned the entire plaza in front of their shop, and called the police on me. That permit did come in handy then, but the shop owner kept calling and harrassing the police, who finally asked me to find another spot.

Funny, the other dozen or so shops there gave me no trouble at all. A few free beers, but no trouble.

The main pitch is the street Stroget: the main shopping thoroughfare of Copenhagen. It begins at the Rathaus, near the Tivoli Gardens. It is very long, quite wide in some places, and connects with 3 or 4 nice main squares. There are so many potential pitches on this one street that you may never have to share with another busker unless you actually want to.

Thank you! It's nice to hear an answer from a qualified worker.

That should make Gazzo happy. Smile

What's a gazzo? I don't remember seeing any while I was in Copenhagen. Is it a weird local sandwich or something?

BTW, in case anyone is wondering, the Rathaus is what we would call City Hall. It is one of Copenhagen's main landmarks, and a pitch unto itself.

Chance: A great reply as always! Thank you very much. And those shop-suckers who wants you off "their" terratory - you never get rid of them, do you?
