Vurige Tongen is a spoken word and music festival. It is created by artists and volunteers who give their time to create a nice gathering. The festival takes place in an arts village called Ruigoord, which is located a short drive away from Amsterdam. The entrance is donation-based.
The organizers say (according to Google Translate):
“The festival once started as a poetic festival and has grown into a very diverse artistic festival, with music, children’s theater and visual art. This cultural music festival offers a platform to writers, rappers and other word artists from all over the world. You can also enjoy live music, swinging DJs and various children’s activities.”
