Organisers defend Womad sister event

The organisers of a new world music festival at a site in the Adelaide Hills believe their neighbours will eventually warm to the plan.

Womad Earth Station is planned as a sister event to Womadelaide and would be held every October from 2010 at a site in Ashbourne, south of Meadows.

Some residents oppose plans to build a new road and a bridge at the site. Womadelaide director Ian Scobie says more information will be provided in a meeting at the Ashbourne Hall tonight.

"I think when people understand that we're not about transplanting a scale of event like Womadelaide with its eight stages to this new site, it is about creating a new, smaller much more intimate festival that's based about ideas of the environment, then I think a lot of people's concerns will probably evaporate," he said. "We're not putting on an event that will have many stages with amplified music - that's not the nature of this new festival and that's a key message that we're trying to get across."
