We ve been going for a number of years to hear great, varied music. Though not enamoured with the fast food and expensive camper van field, previously the musical experience has put these reservations in the shade. Not this year though. The music wasn't so...More

Excellent festival, eclectic, esoteric, tons to do. Very relaxing and great for families. Music can be hit and miss. Some well weird, other stuff mainstream but you will certainly discover something you haven’t heard before (and may never want to again!!)

To experience WOMAD is to have your senses brought to life - from the hypnotic rhythms of Konono No 1, to the powerful vocals of Baaba Maal.

If you are camping there you can of course cook. However, there are no electricity points, even for camper vans, so a fridge might be an issue. There's so much choice in food I am sure you will find something to suit.
