WOMAD Festival, World of Music, Arts and Dance in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
WOMAD celebrates three decades of life in the Archipelago, thirty years of concerts, meetings, and reflections on diversity and cultural wealth, as well as issues related to care and attention to the planet. Its thirtieth anniversary will turn Plaza de la Música and parque Litoral El Rincón into a real party from November 9 to 12.
Throughout this time, the lion’s roar has sounded in different locations, although its seal remains unequivocally linked to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Santa Catalina Park, where its name stands as a mark of identification with the space. On its thirtieth anniversary, the move is necessary due to the MetroGuagua works that are taking place.
The Plaza de La Música will, therefore, be the epicenter of WOMAD 2023, a space that accommodates more than 25,000 people. Stages, gastro area, and the market will add color to El Rincón, El Lloret and the annexes of a plaza that has all kinds of amenities for the public: public transport, parking and commercial area.
