Poetry Slam in Hamburg

Clear the stage for the poets

Hamburg is quite famous for poetry slams. Participants perform texts they have written themselves and the audience decides on the winner afterwards.

In Hamburg, there are many stages and event series that help innovative young authors find an audience. We have made a selection for you on this page.
