Peter Gabriel confirmed for WOMAD

WOMAD 2007

WOMAD, which is moving to a new site at Charlton Park, near Malmesbury in Wiltshire and happening from Friday 27th to Sunday 29th July has announced more acts.

Newly confirmed to play on the Friday is WOMAD co-founder Peter Gabriel, playing one of only a handful of shows in the UK this summer.

Peter says "It has been wonderful to see what has happened with WOMAD over the last 25 years. It is different from any other festival I've ever been to, and although I usually get to enjoy it from the audience rather than the stage, I am delighted to come back as a performer for this 25th anniversary. Thomas Brooman (WOMAD Managing & Artistic Director) has a wonderful, passionate team that have built something quite extraordinary, that is now becoming a national institution. I am very proud to have got the ball rolling."

Also added to the line-up are Chambao (Spain), Chota Divana (India), Clube Do Balanço (Brazil), Gnawa Diffusion (Morocco), Humanature (Australia), Mari Boine (Norway), Seckou Keita Quartet (Senegal/Italy/Egypt/Gambia), Taj Mahal (USA), The Gloworms (UK), and Zawose Family (Tanzania).

WOMAD Charlton Park will welcome an audience of 20,000 and will feature seven stages and workshop areas, including a children's village, many more activities and festival features, all in the idyllic environment of Charlton's open lawns and rolling fields.
