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.
