The musical line up, as every year, is what you make of it, with artists spanning as many genres as can possibly exist within Plane Tree Drive’s bounds, whether you’re of the Thundercat, Kamasi Washington, Nai Palm, Bedouine, or Hypnotic Brass Ensemble persuasion, or more in line with Dan Sultan and Tex Perkins and his mates – you’ve got a tonne to choose from.
WOMADelaide 2018 will run from Friday, 9 March until Monday, 12 March at Botanic Park.
Similarly, the food offering spans just as broadly, featuring some of CityMag’s good friends, such as one time Bowerbird interlocutor, Four Seeds; our recent Joe’s Kiosk discovery, Popsicool; now Henley Beach Road bricks-and-mortar restaurant, but still hanging onto his pop-up roots, Francesco’s Cicchetti; along with many, many others whom we have not yet had the good grace to meet.
Complimenting the musical enrichment, further mental sustenance is also provided in the Planet Talks lineup, featuring free press activist and awarded journalist, Peter Greste; director of MOD at UniSA, Kristin Alford; and climate change activist and poet, Kathy Jetñil-Kijiner.
It is a huge weekend, so if you have tickets – have a great time. If not: it’s not too late.
