Are you a street performer? For instance do you want play music or draw peoples portaits in the streets? You usually need a permit or exemption as a street performer, street photographer, pavement artist, film operator or guide from the municipality you want to perform in. To perform in some municipalities a notification will suffice. Whether or not you need a permit often depends on:
- the location you want to perform
- with how many people
- at what time
- the amount of noise you will produce
Municipalities may designate areas where you are not allowed to perform at all.
