El Gleno Grande
El Gleno Grande, from the United States, will entertain crowds during the fourth annual Southland Buskers’ Festival in January.

The fourth annual Southland Buskers' Festival will hit the streets of Invercargill next month.

The internationally acclaimed performers were selected from the top acts at the World Buskers' Festival in Christchurch at the start of this year.

Buskers will perform at various places in the city such as Queen's Park, Wachner Place and the Southern Farmers' Market.

This year's line-up includes multi-award winning Fuse Circus, who will perform their Campground Chaos show.

The show consists of physical theatre, comedy, circus performance and kiwi music and was inspired by New Zealand summer holiday traditions found in campgrounds, holiday parks and beaches.

The festival will take place from January 31 to February 3. Copies of the festival programme were distributed throughout Southland and Central Otago yesterday. Click here for a copy.
