WOMADelaide organisers have announced that the event will return to its traditional seven-stage format and the festival will also return to Adelaide’s Botanic Park for its 30th anniversary celebration from 11-14 March 2022.
There will be more than 100 performances across seven stages, the Planet Talks forum, KidZone, art and cooking workshops, the global village and more over the March long weekend.
“Since the first event as part of the 1992 Adelaide Festival, WOMADelaide has evolved into one of Australia’s leading large-scale outdoor festivals of music, arts, dance and immersive discovery. We are delighted to confirm that next year’s festival will be held in its traditional multi-stage format in Botanic Park”, said Director, Ian Scobie.
“Over three decades, WOMADelaide has presented an extraordinary range of eclectic cultural experiences both on stage and throughout the lush surrounds of Botanic Park. In the coming weeks we will reveal the first glimpse of the 2022 program, which will bring together past festival favourites and artists performing with us for the first time, in a fitting celebration of 30 years.”
“While the ongoing international border restrictions mean that the program will showcase predominantly Australia-based artists, festival-goers can still expect to discover the diverse, global music flavours for which WOMADelaide is renowned.”
