Annikki Poetry Festival of Tampere, Finland (livestream)
June 6 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Even though the Annikki Poetry Festival is cancelled, the event will happen without an audience, with a condensed programme, and streamed live and free online. The live video stream will be sent from the atmospheric Annikki Wooden Quarter on the original date of the event, 6 June 2020. The duration of the live stream will be about four hours, and the time and URL will be announced later. The stream will be shot by professionals using several cameras.
The performers in the Annikki Poetry Festival live stream will be Jonimatti Joutsijärvi, Monika Fagerholm, Happonen, Paleface & Viljanen, Elsa Tölli, Hannu Mäkelä, Adikia and Alexandra Salmela & J.P. Laitinen.
In connection with the live stream, we will also see specially-made video greetings by the Annikki Poetry Festival’s cancelled foreign and Finnish performers: Zena Edwards (UK), Flying Words Project (USA), Niillas Holmberg (FI) and Sanni Purhonen (FI). The show will be hosted by Päivi Haanpää. The unveiling of the mural featuring poetry by Mirkka Rekola will also be included in the live stream.
