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):
“Throughout the village there is something special to be found, a sweet invasion of countless poets, writers, music, theater, film, market and a charming children’s program.
While the words dance lavishly through the village and there is something to experience everywhere, the melody lines lure you into the church in the evening to dance to the dew. Also don’t forget to take the small paths, because an ‘Unusual Walk’ full of stories from a guide takes you past open studios and stimulates curiosity.
In short, everyone comes to Vurige Tongen, it will enrich you!”
