This weekend, from Friday 10 March to Monday 13 March, the Australian version of rock legend Peter Gabriel’s WOMAD festival (World of Music, Arts and Dance) will once again take place in the city of Adelaide.
WOMADelaide, as it's known, sees a thrilling mix of Australian, Aboriginal and world music artists perform at Adelaide’s centrally located Botanic Park. That's not all that's happening this month: locals call this time of year Mad March, as several giant events – including Adelaide Festival, Adelaide Fringe and Adelaide Writers' Week – take over the city. This year, WOMADelaide also celebrates 25 years, which means the party atmosphere in the streets is going to be bigger and better than ever. Here’s our pick of WOMADelaide's highlights.
