Fremont Street buskers face first space lottery

Buskers can now register online for their chance to secure a performance zone on Fremont Street.

The first space lottery will take place Monday and will determine at random where and when performers can display their talents for a two-hour period between 3 p.m. Tuesday and 1 a.m. Wednesday, a release from the city of Las Vegas said.

Subsequent lotteries will be held nightly.

Winners of the 38 available spots will be announced online.

Performers wishing to use one of the spaces must register and enter into the lottery. In-person registration is available from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. daily in the pedestrian mall at the intersection of Third Street and Ogden Avenue.

The ordinance comes as a joint effort between the city, the American Civil Liberties Union of Nevada, Fremont Street Experience and the performers. It was designed to control congestion caused by street performers.
