Lingo, Ireland’s first Spoken Word festival, attracted “almost 1000 punters into four different venues” last year.

Festival Co-Director Colm Keegan sez:

“Right back at the beginning when we were setting up LINGO, the dream was to connect what’s going on in Ireland with the wider live literature scene, by having world famous poets perform here. Saul was one of the first people on the list. He is the absolute epitome of a spoken word artist. Trace what’s great about the upswell in performance poetry across the world and Saul Williams is there at ground zero, the start of everything, the heart of the hurricane – we are absolutely delighted to have him involved.”

Hundreds of passers by were entertained by a hip hop performance on O’Connell Street yesterday evening. Young Americans handed out flyers promoting a free event due to be held in Liberty Hall (August 4th). It appears the event is being organised by Victory Outreach international, a highly controversial evangelical Christian organisation who were previously exposed in an RTÉ investigations unit report. The event is part of what’s being billed as a ‘European Invasion Tour’ that appears to target young people. Victory Outreach have actively campaigned against LGBT equality and have been accused of exploiting vulnerable people in Ireland and abroad.
