Dundee City Council recognises the vibrancy to a City Centre that buskers and other street entertainers can bring but we do have a code of conduct that we ask you to adhere to.

Under Section 54 of the Civic Government (Scotland) Act 1982, Police Scotland can ask buskers to stop performing where their performance is disturbing others. If you do not comply, the matter may be referred to the Procurator Fiscal, and your equipment seized.

The code was written to prevent busking from:

  • becoming intrusive and an annoyance to people (usually by loud, continuous or repetitive noise)
  • obstructing pedestrians, shopkeepers and City Centre residents
