WOMADelaide is a big festival held in Adelaide Botanic Park, normally during the first (full) weekend of March. The 2017 WOMADelaide festival will run from the 10th - 13th March. The festival was first held in Australia in 1992 and since then it has evolved into a 4 day festival and now happens annually, it used to be every other year in order not to clash with other music festivals in Adelaide.
Obviously WOMADelaide is linked to WOMAD but...
What is Womad?
WOMAD was founded by Peter Gabriel way back in 1982 and the first festival was held in the UK, Womadelaide was first held 10 years later... Womad has grown and now happens in 30 different countries.
