Overview of the event's history
Together with Australia, Spain has become the most popular country outside the UK for WOMAD festivals; and since 1989 the festival has visited Caceres in Extremadura, Granada, Barcelona, Madrid, Pamplona, and Las Palmas de Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands.

A country with an insatiable appetite for fiesta, and with a warm and welcoming climate, Spain is a natural choice for festivals.
The Canary Islands make an idyllic setting for the festival, with blue skies, sandy beaches and stunning natural scenery providing an Atlantic Ocean holiday backdrop for this hugely popular event.
The event is presented entirely free due to the generous support of local government and commercial sponsorship, and is widely attended both by Canarians and many international visitors to the islands.
Please Note: Although it is unlikely that the event will be cancelled, or change dates or location, please note that WOMAD will not be responsible for refunding travel or accommodation costs should this occur. Please ensure you have travel insurance to cover you in these circumstances.
