Ragusa is once again preparing to play host to Ragusa Ibla Buskers, the lively street entertainment festival which will transform the streets, squares and alleyways of one of Sicily’s most striking baroque towns into an open-air circus from 8-11 October 2015.
This year’s event, the 21st festival, welcomes jugglers, acrobats, clowns, trapeze artists and actors from a range of countries in an annual celebration that perfectly blends the best of baroque with street art. Planned highlights include the Canapé Circus, a double trapeze act from Spain, the Mitchi Bitchi Bar jazz-swing band from France and the party atmosphere generated by the Italian Rumba de Bodas group with their reggae and swing music.
Over the years, the event has attracted a total of 600 different artists, representing 56 nations. Visit www.iblabuskers.it.
