If Womad were a country, it would be pretty close to an earthly paradise. - The Times.

As festival season looms on the horizon marking the end of Spring and the start of Summer, I find myself inundated with various varieties of festival lineup's, from the tiny independent day festivals to the large festival Gods Download, Reading & the like.

However after much deliberation and a change in taste over the previous couple of years, it's the alternative and independent festivals, I'm coming to know and love.

One in particular that stands out this year is WOMAD - The Worlds Festival.
It was actually through a friend from high school that I heard about this festival. What a treat for the senses! 

WOMAD is a feast of culture. Apart from experiencing the hottest musicians and inspiring new talent from around the world there is always much more to discover. 
 The sights and smells of amazing food from around the world greet you at the Global Market. Shop for foodie delights and global gifts or simply enjoy the vintage rides at Carter's Original Steam Fair. Look out for shared morsels at the Taste the World stage. This is where some of the artists show off their cooking prowess.
The All Singing All Dancing Tent welcomes you with everything from yoga to sabar dance lessons. In World Rhythms drum to your hearts content and hear the inspirational stories of the the world's best.
In the arboretum, the World of Wellbeing offers an oasis of treatments, therapies, discussions, workshops and spaces to get away from the bustle of the main arena. And for those who fancy a luxurious moment to themselves there is theWOMAD Spa or the increasingly popular La Di Da Loos.
WOMAD's World of Art sees artists use the festival site as a giant canvass and the World of Words brings poetry, human books and debate to the festival. 
The dedicated kids zone World of Kids will be bursting with things to see, hear and do. The theme of Myths, Legends and Folktales comes to life at the Children's Parade, one of the festival highlights.
The World Of Music Arts And Dance festival certainly looks set to be one exciting weekend. July 24-26 2015, save the date in your calendar because this is one live music and arts event, you will not want to miss.
You can check out the artists on the lineup right here. The best news is the theme for this year is... 
Myths, legends and folktales from around the World
