WOMAD, World of Music, Arts and Dance, is an internationally established Festival bringing together artists from all over the globe. WOMAD continues to present music of excellence, passion and individuality, regardless of musical genre or geographical origin, to thousands of festival goers everywhere.
As an organisation, WOMAD now works in many different ways, but its aims are always the same - at festivals, performance events, through recorded releases and through educational projects, the aim is to excite, to inform, and to create awareness of the worth and potential of a multicultural society.
WOMAD provides the opportunity to tour the world in 80 hours, as bands and artists from the four corners of the globe adorn the stunning Charlton Park locale. With the chance to hear music from bands you've never heard before, take in cultures from the world over, and with free entry for kids, WOMAD generates an unparalleled opportunity for those that want to explore and enjoy a welcoming, relaxed, inclusive atmosphere at their choice of festival.
