The Antipoet, Jess Green and Vanessa Kisuule have wrenched in the crowds this glorious morning! With some real jealousy-inducing greatness. Jess Green and the Mischief Thieves were awesome! Brilliantly portraying the passion and pain of teaching. That sense of struggle and euphoria of knowledge and creativity transposed on to the minds of the stressed-out young.
The open Mic was a blast under the steady hand of Megan Beech. I even got to have another quick burst on the mic!
This afternoon is going to be AWESOME. We’ve got Charlotte Higgins, MC Gramski, Sara Hirsch, MiKo Berry, Kayo Chingonyi and….
MURRAY LACHLAN YOUNG, PORKY POET AKA PHILL JUPITUS and the legend that is JOHN HEGLEY!
