Womad 2009

WOMAD will begin in under 24 hours!

Over three-days, 400 artists from 20 different countries perform on six stages. The essence of this festival – New Zealand’s pre-eminent world music, arts, and dance festival – is the discovery and enjoyment of music from around the globe.

Set in the stunning 52 hectare park and garden – the TSB Bowl and Brooklands Park, New Plymouth, this venue has gained a reputation as one of the most beautiful outdoor venues in the world.

At the heart of the festival is The Global Village. Made up of more than 80 stalls trading a vast range of international foods, beverages, arts and crafts.

This annual event has a capacity of 11,500 people per day so there is ample space to accommodate everyone within the 52-hectare park.

Dad will be working onsite from 6am this morning until 2pm, helping the team prepare for the festival. I will be attending the launch tonight, as well as the full three-days of vibrant and dynamic enjoyment, discovery and journey.
