KL street buskers told to get permits to perform
KUALA LUMPUR: Street entertainers (buskers) were told Sunday to apply for permits if they wanted to perform in Kuala Lumpur.
Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) Socio-Economic Development deputy director-general Datuk Mohd Amin Nordin Ab Aziz said they could do so through DBKL's Culture and Sport Division.
He said several discussions had been carried out with the Ministry of Information, Communications and Culture to identify guidelines that the entertainers had to abide by.
"We do not want just about anybody to perform and foreign nationals are not allowed to do so.
"And, the buskers must be above 18 years old," he told reporters, here.
Information, Communication and Culture minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim on Friday said, a location at the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, here, had been provided to enable street entertainers to carry out their practice. - Bernama
