In our first collaboration, District Magazine and Word Up Collective are coming together to take over Wigwam’s rooftop terrace for a day of spoken word and hip hop.
We’re bringing together a selection of the most exciting poets working in Ireland today.
The afternoon will provide a snapshot of a new generation of spoken word artists who – like their musical contemporaries – have brought a range of influences and backgrounds to the medium.
We’ve got accomplished writer and leader of Vice & Verses Clara Rose Thornton, ex-Animator and one of Irish grime’s leading lights Mango, one of the most raw and emotive voices in the country Natalya O’Flaherty, hip hop duo Tebi Rex, Dash plus Word Up mainstays Gracie Essie, JyellowL, Felicia Olusanya, Sasha Terfous and Dagogo Hart Dagogo.
Cóilí Collins will be spinning the best hip hop all day too.
