Merry money making: Christmas is boom time for buskers on London's Tube and streets

16th Dec 2013 6:56am | By Jade Bremner


There’s no better season to belt out tunes in the Tube - and it could be just the career leg-up you need as a musician.

Ever wanted to perform in front of an audience of millions?

Well, in London you don’t have to be a multi-platinum-selling artist to be heard by thousands of people every day – Underground buskers get a platform on which to showcase their talents and gain valuable experience playing live, all while earning a crust during the busy Christmas season.An estimated 3.5 million people use the Tube on a daily basis.And at.....

Bruce Springsteen has done it in his videos, Sting does it in disguise and Tom Jones got £500 in half an hour for doing it. While some still regard busking as a form of street begging, the rest of us know that it is in fact a highly regarded form of performing and money making.

RECOGNISE followed the sounds of London’s underground to speak to Transport for London’s licensed buskers: Israeli born Hadar Manor, Tokyo’s Yoko Hallelujah and Jamie West.

London Diaries: i mille volti di una città

di FQ Londra | 18 aprile 2011 Più informazioni su: Londra


Dopo anni di lavoro in Italia come regista televisiva e videomaker freelance, avvertivo il bisogno di confrontarmi con una realtà diversa, esterna al nostro Paese. Forse perché Bologna, la mia città, ma anche Roma e Milano, che conosco per averci lavorato e vissuto, mi sono sempre sembrate un po’ troppo piccole, e se mi passate il termine “provinciali”. Soprattutto se le si confronta ad altre grandi capitali europee.

Invece arrivando a Londra ho avvertito tutta la differenza. È stato per me come proiettarsi in uno spazio dinamico, in perpetuo cambiamento, capace di affascinare e spaventare al tempo stesso.Di questa città, dove tutto il mondo può sentirsi a casa sua mantenendo la.....

今年度、特に今期はアニメが豊作だ。Fear,and Loathing in Las Vegasの「Chase the Light!」がオープニング曲に抜擢された"逆境無頼カイジ破壊録篇"や、fadeの「One Reason」がオープニング曲に起用されている"デッドマン・ワンダーランド"など、激ロックの読者にも見逃せないTVアニメが各局で絶賛放送中だけど、そんな最中、ネットやレコード・ショップで品切れが続出するほどの大ヒットを飛ばしているアニメ関連のカヴァー・アルバムがあるのでここで紹介しよう。その名も『プリンセス・ジブリ』。なんと、ジブリ作品の名曲をメタル・アレンジしているという驚きの一枚だ。日本にはアニメや特撮のテーマ曲をメタル・カヴァーしているヘヴィメタ集団アニメタルがいるし、海外にも、有名なところでは.....

To gain support or to test the popularity of a piece, great names in music have taken to the streets in disguise to perform to the most demanding of publics – passers by who are busy with their daily lives. 

The street performance experiences of the not so anonymous were very surprising.

The father of pop art, Andy Warhol, had already predicted that in the consumer age everyone would experience 15 minutes of fame. But those who already have a much larger share of success may travel the opposite direction in search of precious minutes of anonymity.

Such is the case of celebrities who perform under disguise for the diverse street public.

London is more than deserving of its title as the live music capital of the world. To earn it, it established a serious system of selection for artists who give up to 90,000 hours of performance each year. 

With over 270 stations spread out across the city and more than 3.5 million daily passengers, London Underground, more famously known as the Tube, is one of the biggest icons of busking culture in the world. The fact that ‘busker’ is originally an English term also says a lot.London first began operating an underground transport system in the 19th century and there are close to 400km of rail tracks – more than enough space to house a variety of.....
