Maitland City Council encourages busking at The Levee, recognising that street performance adds to the atmosphere of the City and helps to activate public spaces.

In General, Council does not issue busking permits, but welcomes buskers to perform who are prepared to comply with the Maitland City Buskers Code of Conduct, which can be found on the Maitland City Council website.

The Code of Conduct clarifies the standards that are expected of buskers and assists Council to manage public space and the interests of the community.
