Be a part of the WOMAD team and volunteer for the festival!

WOMAD has an annual average audience of 12,500 ticket holders; approximately 3,000 children; 1,000 volunteers, artists and staff. Over 300 performers from 20 or more different countries deliver 30 hours of entertainment on 6 outdoor stages. The festival also features over 70 food and craft stalls operating in the Global Village and Kunming Garden. 

Volunteers play an important role in the operations and delivery of this event; from buggy drivers, to traffic control, through to artist minders and zero waste superstars. In past years we have had up to 400 volunteers involved, all performing duties that ensure WOMAD runs smoothly by assisting and supporting key staff during this celebration of world music, arts and dance.
