WOMADelaide is an annual iconic 4-day festival celebrating a World of Music, Arts and Dance on the middle weekend in March. The festival was first presented in 1992 as part of the Adelaide Festival of Arts. This first festival was a joint venture between the Adelaide Festival and the UK based WOMAD organisation, established by Peter Gabriel in 1982 for the presentation of a festival presenting the World Of Music, Arts and Dance from around the globe. WOMADelaide was subsequently staged as a ‘stand-alone event’ biennially from 1993 in alternate years to the then biennially staged Adelaide Festival, until shifting to an annual cycle from 2004 once again as part of the Adelaide Festival program, which has also, since 2012 moved to an annual cycle.
