Womad Singapore 2007

It’s THAT time of the year again, and I am excited!!

So Womad 2007 is happening on the 24-26th August at Fort Canning Park.

The line-up this year is not as great as last year’s. Except for the Asian Dub Foundation, I have not heard of any of these Artiste.

But, I have always been proved wrong , and the least known Artiste have performed the most amazing acts at Womad in the previous years, and hence, I shall not comment anymore on the line up.

Here is a short list of who’s gonna perform.

  • Asian Dub Foundation
  • Bobby Friction and Nihal
  • Clube De Balanco
  • Daara J
  • David D’Or
  • Ensemble Shanbehzadeh
  • Etran Finatawa
  • Jonny Kalsi
  • Mahotella Queens
  • Muntu Valdo
  • Oki Dub Ainu Band
  • R-H
  • Sheila Chandra
  • Shooglenifty
  • Youssou N’Dour and the Super Etoile de Dakar

Once again, to help people with slower connections or without flash support, I have created a pdf document of the line up and schedule. You can print it out and bring it to Womad as well.

However, you will have to go back to the website for other stuff like details about the artists and other information.

The prices have gone up this year. It’s S$58 at the gate, but if you are a student, you can get student’s discount at $35. I still feel it’s totally worth it for the amount and quality of entertainment one can get at Womad.

As I wrote in my review last year, the Atmosphere, Music and Spirit come togather to create a hell of an event.

So who else is going?
