WOMAD (World Of Music Arts & Dance) – 25th-28th July 2019

Published

on

I first went to WOMAD (World Of Music Arts & Dance) in 2005 when it was located in Reading UK. It has a special place in my heart. Its now more popular than ever at it’s new site Charlton Park, Wiltshire (I bumped into Prince Harry few years ago!!!). It’s a true family festival, perfect for little ones to teenagers and young people all the way to OAPs, theres something for everyone. It feels very safe, with the true hippy feeling of love flowing through out.

Lets get to the important part, the music!

World sounds all over, from some of the greatest musicians in the world. From huge recording super star artists from the UK to Ukraine & West African to West Australian all mixed up. Then you’ll hear bands and sounds you’ll have never heard before (check out the onsite Real World record shop, highly recommended for rare CDs & Records).

Flags everywhere! Amazing campsite festival vibes. (I do miss the all night drumming circles in the campsite, I know… more complaint about this than anything I’ve been told, children CAN sleep though anything, please think of bring it back Womad!!?? It was a very special experience, I loved going to sleep with it in the distance and waking up to it, incredible good vibes).

WOMAD’s UK home is in Charlton Park, Wiltshire, where every year, during the last weekend of July, you’ll discover a world without borders, a global fiesta of music, food, dance & art, and a place where everyone is welcome. Our first festival took place in 1982, and since then we’ve taken the party to over 27 countries and held over 250 festivals. We’re currently in Australia, Caceres, Chile, Las Palmas, New Zealand, and of course the UK, so join our global community and celebrate the world on your doorstep.
