You’ve got fresh songs ready, picked out your high-foot-traffic spot, and are amped to start your busking adventures. But how will your sweet sounds rise over the dull roar of the street?

Here are three speaker options – from the basic-but-hardy to the blow-their-hair-back professional – to get you on your way to stardom.

Sony SRS-XP500 X Series Bluetooth Portable Party Speaker
Banish distortion to the dogs with Sony’s freshest member of the X-Series, whose new oblong design means you can turn it up to 11 and retain the crispest of sounds which will effortlessly capture the attention of your new fans. Integrated handles, long-lasting battery (up to 20 hours of playback with a mega-quick charge of ten minutes giving you 80 minutes playback) and a splash-proof shell mean this wireless gem is ready for all weather, whichever corner of Oz you’re busking in. Stream backing tracks from your Bluetooth-connected phone, or plug your guitar or mic directly in, and you’ll be collecting street-cash in seconds flat.

SOUNDBOKS SB3-1BB Wireless Speaker 3rd Gen
Truly a heavy-hitter, the Soundboks delivers all the power that its meaty appearance suggests – without weighing a ton! The only wireless Bluetooth speaker with swappable batteries, this juggernaut can reach 126db (as loud as your average live show) with ease, and boasts wired connection options for XLR, ¼ inch and 1/8 inch signals in its Pro panel – so you’re sorted to plug in mics, mixers, and instruments. You won’t have to halt your show to charge, either; the battery lasts a whopping 40 hours at mid-volume, and five hours at full Glasto-level punch. Huge!
