Frequently Asked Questions


I need some information on streetmusicians / playing music on the streets of Amsterdam. Can you help me?

Sorry. You are contacting an association of street theatre performers, NOT musicians. We know nothing about music or musicians, else than what is written on this page.


We are looking for a street theatre performer for our event. Can you advice us? Can we book that artist though your organisation?

No. We are not a booking office or an agency. We are just a bunch of colleagues and friends. We advice you to go to a booking agency or contact individual performers directly.


We would like your group to create a custom team-production for our event. Is that possible?

Not like that. We are just a bunch of individuals, not a production company. It's up to you, one way or another, to find individual performers to team up and create whatever you need.


I am / we are (a) great performer(s) with a great show. Will you book us for your next event?

Sorry, you misunderstood. We are not a festival- or event organizer. But if you are a great performer, you are welcome to come and share the pitch with us.


Can you recommend a company or agency or so that can help us organize our event?

No. Only if and when some organizer messes up VERY badly, we might publish some statement to protect others against their 'bad business'. So far this hasn't been the case though. In all other cases you are on your own to find and choose.


We are organizing 'this or that' event for 'this or that' good cause. Will you perform for free?

Sorry. We get these kind of offers every week. We would LOVE to work for free, but unfortunately the rest of the world doesn't. So we must be realistic.


Why not? We cannot pay you, but our event would be great promotion for you!

Promotion? To get more unpaid work...?!


Please! We are not very rich!

Neither are we...!


I am a press reporter and I would like to ask some things. Can you contact us?

Sure. Write us an email and we will get back to you as soon as we can. This might not be within 5 minutes however.


Can you give us a list of performer's email addresses?

No. But you can view our list of performers and find individual contact information yourself.


Can you forward my email to all of your members?

No. But you can view our list of performers and find individual contact information yourself.


I am looking for one specific performer I have seen in Amsterdam. I have a photo of him/her. Could you find this person for me?

Maybe. Send us the photo and/or a description and we will do our best. However, also in this particular situation we will NOT give out personal information. Please give us (at least) your email address and we will pass your contact info to that person, if and when we find him/her.


I am a street performer and want to perform on the streets of Amsterdam. What should I do?

Check out our web site and find extensive information.


I want to do street performances in dutch cities other than Amsterdam. What are the rules, where can I get a license?

Don't ask us... We only know about Amsterdam and the situation for street theatre circle shows.


I want to be a street performer. May I join your group?

We are not a group, just a bunch of independant individuals, 'doing their thing', by themselves, individually. If you wanna be a street performer, just perform on the streets, and we will meet you.


I want to be a street performer. Can you teach me?

No. Only the street can teach you.


I am a streetperformer. Can you add a link to my web site on your artists list page?

Sorry, this list is not 'just' a link page for performers. We are only listing street performers who are or have been performing and sharing the Amsterdam pitches.


I want to sell things on the street. Can you help me?

Probably not. Legally, selling is something completely different and different regulations apply. You will need a license, but further we do not know about that. You can get information at the city council.


I want to do portrait painting, make hair-wraps, something like that on the street. What can you tell me about rules and regulations?

Not so much. Doing things like this is different from street theatre and different regulations apply. You will need a license, but further we do not know about that. You can get information at the city council.


I am a street performer. Can you get me a job?

We don't even have a job ourselves!


How much money do you make?

We will not tell you.


Why you don't want to tell me?

We will not tell you.


Do you pay taxes?

Of course we do!
