With excellent crowd numbers, some very pleasant weather conditions and an outstanding and diverse line-up that delivered a host of excellent performances, this may very well have been the best WOMADelaide in the event’s history.
Despite the unnecessary annoyance, the food service was efficient, the meals were remarkable and the atmosphere and setting were perfection.
The good times continued into Day 3 of WOMADelaide, with a diverse program of inspiring and energetic acts, including a few surprises.
Day two of WOMADelaide confirmed the inkling provided by day one, that this was going to be one of the best line-ups the Festival has ever seen.
Turn up dressed up as Marilyn, Madonna, Elvis or Doctor Who for a free show ticket, normally worth $35.
With a singer-songwriter focus to the night’s programming, the steadily building crowd were presented with the perfect opportunity to kick back after the working week and soak up the unique chilled vibe of this event.
In every aspect of the performance, elements of the old and new are seamlessly brought together.
Sequins, sass, shimmying and ghetto hip hop; not your usual Monday night fare, however when it comes to Hans the German (Matt Gilbertson), anything goes.
The orchestra, made up of South Australia’s best and brightest young musicians will bring poetry, passion and power to the fore this year.
