For the 44th time in a row, Poetry International brings you a selection of the best poets from all over the world for an annual poetry spectacle in the Rotterdam municipal theatre. Join us from the 11th through the 15th of June as we journey through distant cultures and tell amazing stories, bringing you beautiful poems in a wonderful diversity of languages, as well as film, music, interviews, master classes and more.

Be on the lookout for world-renowned poets like Adonis from Syria, John Ashbery from the United States, and German poet Elke Erb, breathtaking poetry from China, our very own Dutch Poet Laureate Anne Vegter, VSB Poetry Prize-winner Ester Naomi Perquin, and much more. This year the 44th Poetry International Festival will also be working together with Rotterdam Unlimited, a new intercultural festival with music, dance, literature, theatre, and carnival, which has emerged from the fusion of Dunya and the Rotterdam Summer Carnival.
