WOMAD Announce Lineup

Growing steadily since its first incarnation in 1982, WOMAD proves, year-in, year-out, that popular music is not simply a rundown of what happens to be shifting the most units on iTunes in any given week. Peter Gabriel's world music festival, now moved to the neighbouring county of Wiltshire (originally a Somerset event), has a number of international versions. Abu Dhabi and Adelaide have seen WOMAD events in recent years, but the Wiltshire festival is at heart, the real thing.
