THE DAY LINE-UP FOR WOMAD 2017

In a welcome departure from previous years, the Womad festival for next year in Taranaki has been announced early.

These are just who is on what day and the actual running times and full schedule wil be released in late January.

Meantime though you can plan ahead -- be there Friday for Marlon Williams and the Specials for sure -- and look at the festival website here for bios of artists and other information (like ticketing).

And keep an eye on Elsewhere's coverage of acts here

 Good to go!
