WOMAD is the UK'S premier world music festival, inspired by Peter Gabrielle, WOMAD stands for World of Music, Arts and Dance, the festivals are held all over the world enabling audiences to gain an insight into other cultures through the medium of music.
It's a very friendly, safe and family orientated festival. There are seven indoor and outdoor stages and a capacity of about 20,000. There's a full programme of adult and children's workshops, a cabaret tent, DJ sessions and late live performance in Club WOMAD.
WOMAD does a great deal to aid understanding and bring into the consciousness the worth and value of living together in a multicultural society. This is a gentle, safe and highly recommended festival that just gets better every year- probably the best world music festival out there.
