stands for the World Of Music and Dance festival , which was held bi-annually
in Adelaide, South Australia until 2003 and which has been an annual
event ever since.The event is held our wonderful Botanic Park, which
is situated right in the middle of the parklands which surround the
city centre. Its a fantastic festival setting , just about the best
I've ever seen ( and I've been to quite a few festivals in my time.)
festival was held at the end of February until 2001 but has since
switched to the beginning of March . Its always been held over three
days, but in 1998 a one day festival was held to coincide with the
Adelaide Arts festival at Mclaren Vale ,which is in the wine growing
area outside Adelaide. This did not continue, as it was not a financial
success, but the festival is firmly placed to continue in the Botanic
Park until 2019 at least . The scuttlebutt is that the festival may
be now held over four days since there is a public holiday on the
Monday and there will be another festival held near Strathalbyn in
October on a permanent site.
