Busking in Amsterdam is pretty much allowed anywhere in the city. Best chances though are in a neighborhood at the entrance of a supermarket. If you perform nicely, you should be able to make around 10 to 20 euro an hour. Catchy tunes generate more money than your own songs, or songs that no-one knows. At some supermarkets you sometimes have some 'competition' of another busker. In the city center you have the right to play for an hour, un-amplified. If someone argues (a shopkeeper or police), the best things sometimes is to not argue back, but to just go.
