WOMAD is the World of Music, Arts and Dance, founded in the UK by the musician Peter Gabriel in 1982 and WOMADelaide, the Australian WOMAD festival, kicked off in 1992. It is truly the world’s festival, bringing music from all corners of the globe to Adelaide’s glorious Botanic Park.
WOMADelaide runs over four days in Botanic Park in inner-city Adelaide. With an inspiring mix of traditional and contemporary, the 2014 festival promises to be no different with centuries-old traditional music sitting alongside the latest beats and sounds. The program features performances and workshops on seven stages by the world's best traditional and contemporary musicians, dancers and DJs, a KidZone activity area, street theatre and visual artists, the Taste the World cooking program, The Planet Talks environmental discussions program, The Electrolounge, Artists in Conversation and around 100 amazing food, retail and charity stalls.
The iconic Coopers Beer Garden, will once again be present, offering festival goers the chance to enjoy some ice cold Coopers beers.
