Street performers, buskers, or street artists are public entertainers who perform in public areas for gratuities. In many countries the rewards are generally in the form of money but other gratuities such as food, drink or gifts may be given. Street performance is practiced all over the world and dates back to antiquity. People engaging in this practice are called street performers or buskers.

Performances are anything that people find entertaining. The term busking was first noted in the English language around the middle 1860s in Great Britain. The verb to busk, from the word busker, comes from the Spanish root word buscar, with the meaning “to seek”.

The Spanish word buscar in turn evolved from the Indo-European word *bhudh-skō (“I am awake”). It was used for many street acts, including fire-eating and acrobatics, and was also applied to musicians. By 1200, the term had developed specialized uses referring to minstrels and other entertainers.
