PLACEHOLD Open Mic Night

Come one, come all, bring us your stories, poems, comedies, songs, and eclectic ramblings - we want to hear it all! Join one of the longest running open mic families of Florence, with years of magic shared between us since 2015. We were born as a literary open mic, but we love guest musicians and every other kind of creative. On site you'll find a microphone, a place to plug in your guitar, and even a keyboard if you so desire. Bring your words, your music, your performance, and experiments! 


We have only two limits: five minutes on the mic, and original material only. There is always a willing audience to share your craft with, and we can't wait to hear what you've been cooking up.

Donation: 10 euro includes wine
