Welcome to WOMAD - New Zealand’s favourite award-winning festival!
This three day extravaganza of world music, arts and dance is known for its exciting and diverse line-up, and it’s unlike anything else you’ll find this summer.
WOMAD is more than a festival - it’s an experience. It’s a place where you’ll be surrounded by some of the world’s most inspiring artists, a place where you’ll make lifelong memories, and a place where everywhere you turn there is joy, good vibes, and endless positive energy!
Come to dance all day, come to soak up the unmissable atmosphere, come to experience the world, but most importantly - come to have the best weekend of the year!
Grab your friends and family, pack a smile, and join us at the award-winning WOMAD festival this March.
