Expressions of interest to perform at WOMADelaide 2018 have now closed. Late applications will not be accepted.

Please note that we do not take expressions of interest for the KidZone, The Planet Talks, Taste the World, workshops/yoga programs or roving performers, and that due to the large number received applicants will only be contacted if more information is required or an offer is forthcoming. Thank you for your understanding.


For the first time in 2018 we are partnering with the Festival Volunteer Network (FVN) to assist with volunteer application and recruitment. The FVN is an independent, not for profit service that connects volunteers to the 11 major SA arts festivals under the Festivals Adelaide alliance. You will be asked initially to register your details with FVN, following which you will be able to apply directly for roles with WOMADelaide.

Note: By joining the FVN you are under no obligation to volunteer at any other festival but you will have the option to receive information about or volunteer at other SA festivals. Please be sure to read all the information on the Festival Volunteer Network registration and application forms. Applicants must be South Australian residents and 18 years old at the time of the festival. Applications close 12 January.
