WOMADelaide description

While technology shrinks our world and continents and cultures seem to be drifting further apart, WOMADelaide, over four idyllic days in the oasis of Botanic Park, expands our horizons and brings us closer to our global neighbours. The universal languages of music, arts and dance are central to the eclectic riches to be found through more than 100 extraordinary concerts, nightly performances of the aerial spectacular, As the World Tipped (pictured) as well as workshops, children’s activities, thought-provoking talks and culinary delights, in one immersive, joyous and luminescent festival. Both traditional and forward-looking, WOMADelaide is a much-anticipated and unforgettable experience without equal on the national calendar.
