New regulation limits Ljubljana street musicians

Ljubljana municipal authorities adopted a new regulation about "spontaneous street performances" limiting the time and the area where street musicians can entertain residents and tourists in Slovenia's capital.

Street musician will not need a special permit, unless they use speakers, but in the old city centre, the most popular among street performs, they will be allowed to play and collect donations only between 1600 and 2200 hours on weekdays and between 1000 and 2200 on weekends.

The restrictions were adopted at the start of this year, following residents' complaints about the noise.

Violators could receive a EUR 150 fine.
