It’s exactly 6 weeks ‘til this year’s WOMADelaide, and despite an already whooping line-up, there’s even more to come.
Friday marked the final announcement of the 2019 program, including the Saturday night headline show performance. The New Zealand heavyweights Fat Freddy’s Drop will return to the WOMAD stage, last appearing in 2014 with their mix of dub, funk, soul, jazz and electronica.
They’ll be joining the previously announced acts from around the world such as France’s Christine and the Queens, Greece’s Rebetien, plus Adelaide’s own Timberwolf and Ukulele Death Squad.
But WOMADelaide isn’t all about music, right? The festival brings a heavy mix of workshops, talks and conversations. UniSA’s MOD. will be bringing a taste of its edge to Frome Park with a “WOMOD” shipping container. The new partnership will allow audiences to immerse themselves in a multi-sensory exhibit called Feeling Human. The festival’s program also features 16 free workshops; including pop-culture dance from First Nations dancer-choreographer and Marrugeku dancer Amrita Hepi, and a vocal masterclass with the central Australian Aboriginal Women’s Choir.
“With the festival only 7 weeks away, we are thrilled to add some exciting final touches to the WOMADelaide program beginning with a Saturday night headline performance from Fat Freddy’s Drop,” said WOMADelaide Director Ian Scobie.
All this and so much more can be expected at this year’s festival with a full daily schedule released soon. You can buy tickets to WOMADelaide 2019 here.
