Street Music / Busking in Aarau

I am trying to find out if Street Music / Busking is allowed in Aarau. And if so, are there any specific rules?

So far my search on the net has not revealed much, except a news about a street musician who was asked to leave the Train Station in 2016 or 17.

Has anyone busked there before? Does one need a license? if yes, from where?
Will be obliged if you can share information on this and any relevant links.

Thanks.

Re: Street Music / Busking in Aarau

I have seen the police in Aarau and Baden talk to buskers and send them on their way. Those who play and aren't bothered display a permit with the terms (ex. permit date, time). I have no idea where one might get such a permit.

You can get the license at the local police for 20 CHF.

Per town, so you have to move around, or, as someone I know has done, print out fake permits.

Pashosh linked the regulation for Baden, of course that applies to that town only. Rules for other towns may differ.

Thanks for the link Pashosh.
Does the same work for Aarau as well? And would you also know, where does one pay the fee to get the permit? Thanks.

Thanks Urs. Details are ok But i am still unable to figure out where to get the permit from.

Thanks st2lemans. I doubt if it will be too difficult to catch a fake permit.
Nevertheless, I am still trying to figure where to get a permit, if one is needed.

Do you think they hold auditions before they hand out a permit?

Where is the 'am Schalter der Stadt polizei'?
An address / phone no. / email etc. will help.
Also, that document is about Baden. Does that apply to Aarau as well?
Thanks.

That would be worth a watch.

Moving around is what busking is about

At least that's what it used to be
