I agree over all with what is being said by every one but as a busker I don't think you should make it a rule for your self.
You need to be open, wise and flexerble. In other words I think you often work this out on the road which festavels can you or you cant work.

For example their are music festavels in some citys that all takes place indoors, book festavels and so on. These kind of festavels don't spill out on to the streets necessarily but may atract thousands of visitors to the city. As for the street business as usual perhaps better hats because of the festavel.

Take for example the Edinburgh fringe the busking sean their was born on the back of festavels. Years ago you would rock up and have go. It is now known as the biggest fringe festavel in the world. They now have a buskers office trying to run things but each year buskers are working diffrent pitches often out side of the duristriction. It all goes to make up this festavel.

So as a busker if you want to have a bit of fun your going to have to be a little open, flexerble and wise.

Makes total sense to me and I agree with 100%
I have crashed festavels before but they are certain festavels that lend them selfs to that.
For example Spanish Ferrias. Other than that I agree with you.

Out of curiousity, what makes "Spanish Ferrias" lend themselves to being crashed?

For that matter, what's a "Spanish Ferrias?"

Spanish Ferrias - Spanish Festvel
Almost evry village, town or city has one in Anderluscia.
Marked by Religous activities a prossesion will start the festavel.

Then the fun begins, food, drink, dance, bull fights, games for children.
Often lasting for a whole week the norm three days.
Spanish Carneys turn up often in mass.

The noise can be mental, Spain wins the awards as Europes noisest city.
Just walk into a Spanish Café to see what I mean, two to three TVs on at the same time often diffrent stations.
With no one watching and every one trying to talk over the TVs, unless the football is on.

Imagine a festavel with been run with this mind set, its going to be loud, you have been warned.
You will need to be able to do your show in spanish or silent, you will need to find your own spot away from the noise which will be impossible, LOL. So you need to find a less noisy place.

Warning - Not all Spanish festavels are workable ie the hats can be crap. I have been shut down before by the police but that's not because of the festaval but because their idots. don't try to set up next to the carneys they will just blow you out. If you find a good one don't tell any one.

What you got to bare in mind is not every festavel is held in th middle of no where. Infact lots of festavels are held in towns where buskers are already working.
