Get Slammed at the Powerhouse

Slam poets take over Brisbane Powerhouse this Saturday (August 1) for the first Brisbane heat of the 2015 Australian Poetry Slam. Contestants have just two minutes to rock the mic, impress the judges and secure a spot in the final.

Judges from the audience will rate each performance and the two highest scoring word wizards will advance to the Queensland Final on Sunday, August 30 at the Judith Wright Centre as part of the Queensland Poetry Festival.

The slam kicks off at 4:30pm, with competitor sign-up from 4:00pm. Only the first 20 competitors to sign up will be able to compete.

The event, which will be hosted by MC Adam Hadley and feature a set from electronic outfit The Architects of Sound, will be held on the Turbine Platform stage and entry is FREE.
