And such is the success of WOMAD that the festival has travelled to more than 30 countries, and is entered in the 2001 Guinness Book of Records as the “biggest international music festival”.
Off stage, artists hold classes and meet ups for any interested in learning more about indigenous instruments, musical styles, and performance techniques. There are also tents reserved for arts and crafts for kids (adults are welcome too, of course), and there is even a carnival as part of the scene with rides like spinning cars and merry-go-rounds.
Workshops. Adult workshops are taken by the musicians and will involve dance, musical instruments and discussions. Children’s workshops involve painting, circus skills, graffiti, modelling, story telling and more.
Taste The World. Musicians cook a choice of dish from their home country in front of an audience.
Global Market. The Global Market sells international food and wares.
