11-14 MARCH 2016
Over 4 unforgettable days and nights in March, Adelaide's glorious Botanic Park hosts a journey of remarkable performances by over 400 of the world's top traditional and contemporary musicians, artists, dancers and thinkers from every corner of the globe. The 2015 program features performances and workshops across 7 stages, a KidZone activity area, street theatre and visual artists, the Taste The World cooking program, The Planet Talks environmental discussions program, Electrolounge, Artists in Conversation and over 100 amazing food, retail and charity stalls.
WOMAD is the World of Music, Arts & Dance, founded by the musician Peter Gabriel in 1982, and WOMADelaide, the Australian WOMAD festival, kicked off in 1992. Over the past 23 years it has become one of the nation’s favourite outdoor festivals, not only because of the unique and extraordinary music it presents, but also because of its beautiful and friendly vibe. Families are welcome (kids 12 and under get free entry) and the diversity of the audience is almost as astounding as the line-up. WOMADelaide is a member of Festivals Adelaide.
