Australian Poetry Slam Victorian State Final
Somewhere between stand-up and socially-conscious rap are the cream of Victorian slam poets.
If you haven’t seen slam poetry before, the Victorian State Final is a good place to start. A raucous, audience-focused evening of live entertainment that sits somewhere between stand-up and socially-conscious rap, going to a slam is something to try, even if poetry’s not your bag. Who knows, you might even be one of the audience members randomly selected to be a judge.
This year’s final, hosted by last year’s winner Simon Taylor, has already done the hard work for slam fans who want to check out the cream of the local crop without having to sit through any inevitable, cringeworthy stuff.
