We do not have history of poetry festival. We are in the process of writing it. The Belagavi poetry festival presents poets from different lands with an eye to bring out their emotions through voice which have enabled poetry to come thus far over a time. This platform stands for those for whom poetry is medium for articulation of their extreme thoughts; for whom, pen is weapon to defeat and battle out all the lost confusions. We present poets as the knights of the language. Belagavi poetry fest gives the aesthetic experience through poetry and allied emotions. If you think you know what poetry is, come along and we’ll surprise you. There are live readings, performances, workshops, open mics, music, exhibitions, films, a slam and much more. Join us for a celebration of poetry in the heartland of Belagavi. Poetry is a true emotion of heart that has to be heard with true human consciousness, so we at Belagavi Poetry Festival focus on the language of the region and we are happy to accept poems in English, Hindi , Kannada, & Marathi languages.
