The Ticket prices aren't posted at www.WOMAD.org yet, but A Weekend Camping is around 80-90. If you check back closer to the 15th, it'll have prices.

Posted:I've paid up and am just waiting for Womad to post me out my tickets. My sister, her 2 girls and I will be there again. Lets see how much stuff we can squeeze into the car this year! I swear we don't use most of it. See you there!

I'm guessing Thursday will be a quiet night due to the extra cost of camping that night so if you are going to be there come down to the river and we can spin for the evening.

Posted:WOMAD is "woah, mad!?!".



I camped on the riverside for a few years and no one ever bugged us. Had a fire the whole weekend too. Which if I recall you can't do in the campsites. Then every year it became busier and busier, and more and more people tried to do the riverside thing. Then a couple of years back we were hassled every now and again to move our tents. We kept telling them we didn't know whose tents they were and we'd pass a message on if we ever found out who owned them. So they stayed all festival. I get all antiauthority when I am nurturing my latent hippyness. I remember this one evening , walking straight in while just pretenting to have a wrist band, superb demonstration of misdirection.



Did love it. Might try to do it again if I can get some crew together.
