Saul Williams, world renowned poet, rapper, actor and musician [performing ‘List Of Demands’ above) will headline this years LINGO Festival in The Workman’s Club, Dublin on October 18.
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.”
