WOMAD Festival

27 to 30 July 2023

What to expect at WOMAD Festival

WOMAD – World of Music, Arts and Dance – is one of the longest-running, best culturally established festivals on the planet. The festival began in the UK back in 1982, intending to celebrate diverse cultures and their artistic offerings from around the globe.

Since that first event, more than 160 WOMAD festivals have been held in 27 countries and islands all over the world, including everywhere from Abu Dhabi to the US, Australia to Sardinia, Canada to South Africa – and, of course, New Zealand.

Always family-oriented, WOMAD festivals are the ultimate culmination of sounds, scenery, and good vibes. Through festivals, community events, and educational projects, we aim to excite, delight, and open your mind to the worth and potential of a multicultural society.

WOMAD only sells weekend tickets. Once you get there, there's enough events to keep you occupied for days. There's workshops, poetry and activities for the little ones, to name just a few.

WOMAD offer a range of on-site accommodation, from camping pods to spa packages.
