Bengaluru Poetry Festival

A space for the verse to be engaged with — by poets,
readers, performers, and audience — across forms, formats, and languages

The Bengaluru Poetry Festival was conceptualized by Atta Galatta.

The objective of the Bengaluru Poetry Festival is to provide a space for the verse to be engaged with — by poets, readers, performers, and audience — across forms, formats, and languages and to focus on the resonating connects between people, families, society, nature and higher beings through the medium of poetry.

Held annually since 2016, the festival has brought internationally recognized poets, performers, and musicians to the city, and has grown from strength to strength with the support of the poetry lovers of Bangalore

The festival is held every year, on the first weekend of August
