Latest news »What a weekend: WOMAD 2016

What a fantastic WOMAD weekend that was! We had plenty of sunshine, delicious food and of course music from every corner of the globe.

If you can't wait to relive the weekend, take a look at the WOMAD Facebook page for photos and video highlights, or have a listen to the official Spotify playlist here.

We hope you had a chance to experience some of the Real World Records artists and music too. The Grit Orchestra kicked things off to a fantastic start on the Open Air Stage on Friday afternoon, with an incredible orchestral version of the late Martyn Bennett's album.

Sidestepper got everyone grooving on Saturday afternoon on the Siam Stage, with a great set featuring tracks from their latest album, Supernatural Love.

The Breath wowed the packed crowd at the Ecotricity Stage on Sunday night, with a beautiful performance of tracks from their debut album Carry Your Kin.

The Bowers & Wilkins Sound System 2016 was also a popular location throughout the weekend, with the 4-way, 135,000 Watt speaker system providing impressive sound quality for performances from Stuart McCallum, Hollie Stephenson, Dawn Penn, The Anchoress and more.

Hope to see you next year for WOMAD 2017!
