WOMAD Full Lineup Announcement

Sinead O'Connor and Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club are just two of the headliners announced for the 2015 WOMAD festival, in addition to the already announced Rufus Wainwright and Youssou N'Dour.

Also due to perform are Toumani & Sidiki Diabate (Mali), Lake Street Drive (USA), Public Service Broadcasting (UK) and Balkan Beat Box (US/Israel). A total of 28 acts from around the world are due to perform at the TSB Bowl of Brooklands over the weekend of Friday 13th-Sunday 15th of March.

Celebratings its 11th anniversary in 2015, the festival has managed to retain its intimate and family-friendly atmosphere, with the maximum capacity for each day set at 12,500 patrons - just enough to have a good vibe going, but not so many that the 55-acre site feels crowded.
