After a successful 1st edition in 2017, Spoken Fest is here again in Mumbai. Here are five reasons on why you should attend India's biggest celebration of words, voices and stories.

1. A first of its kind initiative for Spoken Word in India.

You've never been to a fest like this before,

By the end of it, you'll be shouting "Encore!"

Once a year, storytellers, songwriters, poets and performers from across the globe, gather to share their art with you. Spend your afternoons sitting down, all cosy and cross-legged, swapping stories at a workshop. Listen to your favourite poet share the secrets of their craft. And, as the day melts into night, tune into guitar jams and sing-alongs under fairy lights. Two days to cherish and discover all things beautiful in the universe of performing arts.

2. Enter the magical world of words.

Like Alice through the rabbit hole,

Them words will find their way to your soul.

Poignant truths, comedic insights, lyrical ballads and far-out fiction in languages as varied as Urdu, English, Hindi, etc. You will hear the rallying cries of the heart and the thud of mics dropping. Poets, storytellers, thespians, lyricists, comedians and musicians will have your heart beating at the mercy of their words. Pure creative self-expression.

3. The lineup.

With a kommuneity like this in the hood,

You know it's going to be REAL good!

5. Feel inspired.

If it is inspiration that you seek,

It's seeking you too, as we speak.
