Come on the WOMAD journey

WOMAdelaide isn’t your typical music festival; it’s a journey through music, arts, dance that highlights important issues and interests too. Founded by musician Peter Gabriel in the United Kingdom, WOMAdelaide has been flying to Australian contingent flag high since 1992. We’re told the audience is as dazing as the line-up, which features some 400 musos, artists, dancers and even thinkers. Enrich yourself with knowledge at events like The Planet Talks environmental discussions, the Electrolounge, Taste The World cooking program and Artists in Conversation or drop the kids off at the KidZone activity area.
