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.
Workshops with performers are very popular and the Kidszone brings out the creativity in all children. WOMAD is known for its family-friendly atmosphere.
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.
For the first time, the 2009 event will feature a Sustainable Village and new chill out areas.
Camping and marae style accommodation is available on-site and the city offers a wide variety of accommodation – from low cost to high cost.
This festival is three-days of vibrant and dynamic enjoyment, discovery and journey.
