BITE markets at North Harbour is on the hunt for the first ever Bite Busker-in-Residence, with a year’s busking up for grabs!

BITE MARKETS at North Harbour is not just about fantastic food – the flavour hub at North Harbour is now on the hunt to find the first official Bite Busker-in-Residence, with the search focused on a VOICE performer!

Up for grabs is the busking opportunity of a lifetime – exclusive rights to busk at Bite Markets for 12 months!

Bite Markets is calling on voice buskers across all genres – from country to hip hop, funk to beatbox, rock and pop to reggae, disco, folk and all in between – to apply NOW at!

Three weekends of heats will see buskers battle it out at Bite Markets before the grand final decider. Heats begin on Friday June 21 and Saturday June 22, with the grand final set for Saturday July 13.

Founder of Bite Markets Tom Burke said music and entertainment was as much a part of Bite Markets as food, with the custom-designed container hub a perfect platform for local performers.

“Having a Voice of Bite as a 12-month Busker-in-Residence is exciting for all of us. Music creates atmosphere and atmosphere is all part of creating a village which is what we have done and will continue to do at Bite Markets. We have two fantastic new stages, ready for the heats, and we can’t wait to hear their voices.”

“Our search is all about giving local buskers the opportunity to perform to a guaranteed audience. Each weekend 1000s of people flock to Bite Markets not only for the amazing food, but also for the atmosphere and being able to wine and dine while listening to some amazing live talent. So, whether you are 15 or 70, if you can sing, and have a voice, apply now, we’d love to hear from you – literally!”

The judging process will be done by Bite Market patrons and management, together with leaders from Channel 9 and HIT105 with special guests for the Grand Final event.

The Busker-in-Residence title allows the busker to perform each weekend (Friday and Saturday) nights at Bite Markets.
