Summer Slam 2022

Sunday 6th February 2022
from 7:00pm

181 Hindley Street, Adelaide


As a practice run for the SA leg of the Australian Poetry Slam, the Summer Slam has traditionally consisted of five heats, plus a final. This year, we’re doing it a little differently. This will be a one night only event!

The poets will compete in a random order, and the top five scores will go through to an immediate second round – just like at the National Final.

We have no choice but to limit the number of events this year, so this is your chance to flex those poetry muscles. The stakes are lower, the competition is friendly, and the environment is as supportive as you can get.

REPEAT: Poets have ONE chance at the Summer Slam title this year! This is going to be a ripper to watch. We know how keen you all are to support the arts during this trying time – not to mention supporting Jive, a venue who have always been good to us. So get ready, brush up the poems, put aside some money for a ticket and a few drinks, and hit that booking link!

This is a COVID-safe event. You will need to check in with a QR code and provide proof of double vaccination or a legitimate exemption.
