WOMAD Charlton Park 2012

Posted on July 2nd, 2012 in Recent posts by .

Festival season is upon us, and WOMAD Charlton Park 2012 is a mere few weeks away! And this isn’t any old WOMAD, it’s the 30th anniversary. You can take a trip down memory lane on their website, or submit your own photos/videos/memories. Be sure to check out our feature on the 30 years of WOMAD in our next issue (August/September 2012, #86), which we will be bringing with us to the festival.

With a reputation for killer line-ups year upon year, it goes without saying that the 30th anniversary is going to spectacular. From the Hendrix of accordion Kimno Pohjonen to the panpiping Narasirato; the Cajun spice of the Pine Leaf Boys to the Angolan beats of Batida, you can expect to get your groove on this July. 

And just in case you needed any other reasons to pack your tent and wellies for a weekend of fun, WOMAD offers these: 

If you’re not able to make it this year, have no fear, Songlines will be blogging and tweeting aplenty to fill you in. If you are one of the lucky ones to be on site, whip out those smart phones and iPads and follow us to stay on top of what’s happening.

      The line-up at Womad is consistently varied,surprising,new,culturally diverse and always of the highest calibre.
      I can’t wait to be transported again. I will never forget Hukwe Zawoze in that small tent and where it took me and my friends. Thank you the whole Womad team for always making me welcome and giving me a festival to remember. May the sun shine for the 30th anniversary!
