New Plymouth’s very own three-day music, arts and dance festival, WOMAD - World of Music, Arts and Dance have just announced their latest drop of acts to compliment their already powerful lineup.
This year, WOMAD celebrates their 16th Birthday with grandeur; guests will be able to enjoy close to 100 hours of music spread over eight unique stages. Bringing together artists from all over the globe to showcase vibrant forms of music, arts and dance, this inclusive, inspiring and informing event is not one to miss.
The latest musical lineup dropped this Tuesday and with Kiwi icons such as Soaked Oats, L.A.B and Reb Fountain featuring, it's never been easier to support your local. The home-grown heroes join other exciting acts such as girl power champion, Muthoni Drummer Queen, a political Jamaican Reggae icon, Ziggy Marley and future-soul quartet, Hiatus Kaiyote.
These groovy new additions add even more interest to an already star-studded lineup. After all, the original release revealed Grammy award-winning Blind Boys of Alabama as well as the awe-inspiring duo Catrin Finch and Seckou Keita.
As any past attendees are already well aware of, WOMAD is known for having an array of culinary delights unparalleled by other festivals. Whether you’re in the mood for an energizing acai bowl, some mouthwatering vegan dumplings or fried chicken, they have you covered. The festival is all about inclusion, after all.
This year’s food ventures include interactive workshops and cooking demos, allowing audiences to learn how to recreate the delicious delicacies in their own homes. So now when you look back with nostalgia, you have the recipes to take you back to what is bound to be a festival to remember.
Aside from the unparalleled eats and beautiful setup, this year's festival also features an inaugural book club, centring around Chessie Henry’s ‘We Can Make A Life.’ Attendees are encouraged to come together for this collaborative novel depacking, hosted by the author herself.
When you’re done releasing your inner literary genius, you can then make your way over to the STEAM lab, an innovative new venture where speakers discuss Science, Mathematics, Engineering, Arts and Technology. Find them in the harmonious setting of the Pinetum for a group ponder over some Big Important Ideas.
