Big Saturday Night
Push The Boat Out: Edinburgh’s International Poetry Festival
Summerhall - Dissection Room
Four lyrically explosive performers of poetry will prove to you that poetry transcends categorisation, that hip hop is absolutely poetry, and Scottish hip hop is absolutely world-class. This promises to be a raucous, uplifting headline show featuring force of nature and much-acclaimed performer and poet Salena Godden, Scottish Album Of The Year winner, Nova, plus fellow Scottish rapper emcees Solareye of Stanley Odd and the mighty Empress, whose debut album Love Wins has been winning over all who hear it. Expect upbeat rhythmic excitations, deft flow, sharp social observations and maybe even some dancing.
