PALMA street artists and performers will soon need a license to work in the capitol.

Artists and musicians will soon need a license

Those who wish to to perform music or magic, or sell goods or artwork will need approval from the town hall to avoid ‘current problems’.

Eva Frade, the councillor for citizen participation, says problems between artists and residents, business owners and even other artists are a rising problem.

It is still undecided how long a license will be valid for, and how much the fee, if any, will be.

Proposals suggest priority would be given to artists who live in Mallorca full time, not just during the tourist season. Frade has said organising sections is a main priority, with a possible system of rotation for artists.
