WOMAD is the world of Music, Arts & Dance festival and WOMADelaide is Australia’s festival which has been a popular event over the past 20 years founded by Peter Gabriel. Running over four days in Botanic Park in inner-city Adelaide the festival includes a diverse range of performances, workshops and stalls from some of the world’s best traditional and contemporary musicians, artists and dancers.
