Where: Linz, Austria
When: July; annually

Think Cirque du Soliel, amusement park entertainment, and live theatre, for three days, in the middle of the street. Austria's got it. During the second half of July every year, street performers from around the globe gather in Linz, Austria for the annual street arts festival. Don't worry about being subjected to performances that are anything less than spectacular at Pflasterspektakel. Every performer must go through an application process and is carefully selected by the festival committee. Make sure all of your currency is in single denominations as you'll be throwing a lot of money into hats.
