Lingo Festival 2015


Ireland’s first and only spoken world festival, Lingo returns to Dublin from Friday, October 16 to Sunday, October 18 to for another week of exceptional performances from fresh voices and spoken word masters from Ireland and much further afield.

Organised by some of the Dublin’s most attuned independent promoters, arts curators and spoken word artists, this year’s outing boasts everyone from headliner extraordinaire Saul Williams and experimental poet and playwright Dylan Coburn Gray to UK poet and spoken word artist Hollie McNish and Derry-based performance poet Abby Oliveira.
