WOMAD 2021 UK Artist Announcement

Posted on 12 April 2021

The first WOMAD 2021 artist announcement is here!

WOMAD are delighted to welcome a plethora of magnificent artists ready to entertain you at WOMAD in July 2021.

This eclectic mix of UK based artists celebrates the extraordinary diversity of musical talent emanating from the global communities that have made the UK their home.

This is just the first stop on the WOMAD roadmap to an exciting summer discovering great artists you’ve yet to meet and those you have loved for years.

Look out for future announcements when we will cram more great names into the WOMAD basket with a crop of international artists joining us for our summer celebration of a return to doing the things that we have missed the most.

Tickets are on sale now and selling faster than ever so snap ‘em up before they’re gone! 


The music is just the start of it at WOMAD; as well as incredible musical performances from all four corners of the globe there is so much more to explore. From celebrating the spoken word at the World of Words with author talks, debates and discussions, fusing food and music at the Taste The World stage where artists cook up a storm, being inspired and intrigued at the World of Physics with the brand-new How-To Tent, chilling out in style at the World of Wellbeing and even a whole hub of discovery for little ones at the World of Children, there truly is something for everyone.

This is just a snap shot of some of the incredible artists that will make up the full artist announcement  for WOMAD 2021. We hope you enjoy discovering them as much as we have. Check out the poster and head over to the line-up page to learn a bit more about each artist here. Delve deeper into WOMAD 2021 with our Spotify playlist here.
