WOMAD stands for World of Music, Arts and Dance, bringing together many forms of music, arts and dance from countries and cultures around the world.
The festivals are held all over the world, and allow audiences to gain an insight into cultures other than their own through the enjoyment of music. WOMAD aims to excite, to inform, and to create awareness of the worth and potential of a multicultural society. It has a friendly and family-safe atmosphere, as well as chilled music from all around the world.
WOMAD presents around 70 artists from across the world, on both indoor and outdoor stages. There’s also a full programme of adult and childrens workshops, the cabaret tent, DJ sessions and live performance in the late night ‘Club WOMAD’.
