First Names Unveiled For WOMAD Festival's 10th anniversary event in Wiltshire

George Clinton, Baaba Maal, Ibrahim Maalouf and much more

This July, WOMAD Festival will be hosting its global party in the grounds of Charlton Park in deepest Wiltshire for the tenth time.  The first wave of artists who’ll be heading for this particular corner of paradise this summer.
If ever there was a man and band who know how to get a party started, it’s surely George Clinton Parliament Funkadelic. The commander-in-chief of the psychedelic end of the funk spectrum, George has been an extraordinary showman for the best part of half a century now and shows no sign of taking his foot off the gas. Come July, he’ll be putting one festival under a groove, for sure.
“It would be ludicrous to think that we are new to this, we do this cos we got that doo doo."

The festival sees the return of the Senegalese musician, statesman and icon Baaba Maal. Since making his WOMAD debut several decades ago, Baaba has become one of African music’s most globally celebrated superstars – as well as being the recipient of the ultimate accolade: becoming a castaway on Desert Island Discs. His performances on our stages are always powerful occasions.
“I’m so excited that my new band will finally experience the incredibly diverse and inspirational festival that is WOMAD. It’s always such an incredible weekend.”

Other acts just announced are Afriquoi, Aziza Brahim,  Baloji, Blick Bassy, Desert Slide, Dom La Nena, Ethno-Trio Troitsa, Hot 8 Brass Band, Ibrahim Maalouf, Lula Pena, Moh! Kouyate, Muzykanci, Pat Thomas and his Kwashibu Area Band, Sidestepper, Tetish, The East Pointers, The Grit Orchestra and This is the Kit.
