2022 was like a frosty fruity on a 40-degree day, melting away faster than you can say Jack Robinson.
So we stand here in December with our Santa sacks empty, naive of the shopping avalanche that awaits. Now’s the time to pounce my friends because our 2022 Gift Guide is your one-stop shop for presents that your friends and family won’t re-gift next year.
First up are tickets to the massive 31st edition of WOMADelaide, which is returning to Adelaide’s astounding Botanic Park from March 10-13. Florence + The Machine, Bon Iver, Youssou N’Dour, AURORA, Sampa The Great, Nightmares on Wax, The Proclaimers, Soul II Soul, Angel Olsen, Billy Bragg and Genesis Owusu & The Black Dog Band are just a few of the legend-stacked lineup, spanning over 26 different countries.

Renowned as one of the world’s most extraordinary aerial performances, Place des Anges, by French company Gratte Ciel, will also feature at WOMAD 2023. Featuring a host of feathered angels who dance and descend from high above the treetops in a celebratory ethereal ballet, Place des Anges will be performed nightly as an Australian exclusive, transforming Botanic Park into a magical wonderland of music, acrobatics and death-defying theatrics. A giant hanging recreation of planet Earth, and Mexico’s Foco alAire performers will also highlight the incredible artistic diversity the festival is famous for.
WOMAD tickets are a no-brainer for our gift guide, given the festival is among Australia’s best at providing an experience for everyone. It’s the gift that keeps on giving, as anyone who’s ever been to WOMAD will tell you, it leaves you with memories you keep for a lifetime.
Four-day, three-day and single-day and night tickets are on sale now, with children 12 and under able to attend for free.
