On the Saturday of the Muster Weekend the village of Bungendore hosts the Signflair Busking Competition with $1000 in prize money to be won.
The competition runs from 9am to midday and is open to all non-professional buskers. The $1000 prize money is shared by the judges award for Bush Balladeer and 1st, 2nd and 3rd place getters in the people’s choice awards. There is also a judge’s award which is judged on Australian bush ballad content and the winner of this receives a certificate and an opportunity to appear on stage in the Muster on Saturday afternoon.

Performance locations are drawn on the Thursday evening after the close of entries and displayed at both the muster office at the showground and Woodworks Gallery from the Friday morning. The Buskers office opens at 8:15am at the Woodworks Gallery to answer any questions and all buskers are welcome to sell their music at their performance location on the day.
Buskers are allowed to use amplification but need to ensure that sound levels are within acceptable levels for a busking competition. The muster supervisors may request buskers to reduce sound volumes if they have concerns.
