City warms to global beat

It was truly a cultural melting pot at WOMADelaide yesterday, with scorching temperatures sending festival fans scurrying for shade.

Asian-style umbrellas, Vietnamese hats, trees and tents provided some relief from the sun, with long queues for taps and ice cream stands. But the burst of autumn heat, which reached 36C, failed to scotch revellers' enthusiasm.

"Every time it's really hot, but it's just part of Womad," Emilia Clark, 17, from Victor Harbor, said. "It's a great atmosphere." Sarah Andrews, 25, from Norwood, said it just "makes everyone even more spaced out. As the sun goes down, people spark up".

St John Ambulance volunteers treated 60 people during the day for a range of ailments including blisters, headaches, heat stroke and burns. And there's no excuse for a lazy Sunday today, with a host of events to choose from in Adelaide's month of fun and festivities.

Whether it's swaying to the sounds of world music, feasting on the Fringe or indulging in wine, there's something to please almost all tastes.

Events other than WOMADelaide include:

FRINGE: There are many Fringe events to choose from today, or else just soak up the atmosphere in the Garden of Unearthly Delights in Rundle Park.

CRUSH '07: Formerly the Hills Harvest Festival, the Adelaide Hills wine region comes alive today with the sound of music and the aroma of food.

Grab a map from the Adelaide Hills Visitor Information Centre and a $3 tasting glass at one of the various wineries.
