Music festival WOMAD (World of Music and Dance)

If you would like to listen to faboulus live music from all over the world, you should not miss the famous World of Music, Art and Dance (WOMAD) festival in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

WOMAD festivals take place in over 20 countries, on 4 continents.



For the past eight years, the Parque de Santa Catalina – a city square close to spectacular the Playa de las Canteras beach – has been the heart of the festival in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
During these 3-4 days, you can not only enjoy various live musical performances, but also workshops, stalls, night shows, DJ sessions, as well as children events.

The original idea of Peter Gabriel – the founder of the festival, was to evoke interest in celebrating, and first of all, in sharing the world music, arts and dance.



Now, the festival attracts crowds of fans and artists. What is more, it promotes the international artists and boosts their careers.

WOMAD in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is a real feast for those who seek for great multicultural atmosphere in a beautiful surrounding. It also gives the opportunity to taste the food and to buy souvenirs from all around the globe.

It is a place, where you can just “taste the world“.
