"Berlin" stands for freedom, innovation and might think. But the recent rules and guidelines for street-music and busking are really artist-unfriendly.

Approvals even don't contain putting your guitar case in front of you or posing and using your little Amp, wich is in busy places actually necessary to be heard.

Music is treated as noise pollution.

We demand a better support and better conditions for streetart and- music, especially in these times in wich artists have and had a hard time without stage. Berlin should promote street culture for it 's own interest.

Examples like Ireland/Dublin show how an uncensored permission of street-music furthers culture and changes the image of the city in a positive way. This could make Berlin a more interesting and vivid place and has nothing to do with "noise pollution".



Not just artists should have an interest in creating a vivid culture of Street-music Sign and help to make Berlin a centre of culture and ideas again.

Thank you for your support, Dirk Weidner from Berlin

    Kein Leben ohne Musik. Musiker brauchen gerade jetzt noch mehr die Möglichkeit zu spielen. Open Air, auf der Strasse ist derzeit fast die einzige Möglichkeit, ausserdem bereichert es die Stadtkultur. Ein lebendes Denkmal für den Erhalt der Kultur! Menschen brauchen gerade jetzt Musik, für die Seele!
