WOMADelaide 2016


Again Adelaide hosts this world class music event. Adelaide certainly knows how to host such major events and should be proud of what they do. They have a support structure in place that guarantees a smooth running event. From the WOMAD staff to the contractors that put up the fencing, do the catering, supply the staging, audio and lighting. There is a great variety of acts that cover a gamut of performance styles. There is something for everyone.
The surroundings for this major music festival are the Botanic Park, here on the lawns amongst the stately trees several stages are constructed, lights are rigged and clear, clean audio pumps out to an enthusiastic crowd. The audience are indeed very lucky to have one of the best music festivals in the country.
But what happens if the weather turns bad? This year we have had a bit of rain, which will make the ground rather soft and the atmosphere humid. These are challenges that I am sure they will take on the chin and work through the technical difficulties that these can present. It fact I am sure there is a document in a folder with a contingency plan for such an event. This is what good event management is about. Being prepared for anything and facing it head on.
So check back over the next few days as I post photos and words about this amazing event.
