Fatboy Slim, Reverend And The Makers and Billy Bragg recently backed a new busking festival.

Busk In London aims to make it easier for buskers to be able to perform in the capital.

Sadiq Khan, the new Mayor of London, pledged to strengthen London’s position as a cultural and artistic capital and Busk In London said last month’s first International Busking Day would be part of that.
