Rant! returned in 2017, with professional ranter Luke Carman hosting a night of entertaining, funny and occasionally naughty speeches from Matthew Thompson, Summer Land, Ailsa Piper, Roanna Gonsalves, Madeleine O'Dea and Michael Sala.

Rant! was brought to us by festival partner Seizure, an online literary journal, publisher, and literary event organisation run entirely by volunteers from the publishing industry.
