If you would like to make audio/audio-visual recordings of any of the WOMEX Showcases, you need a special agreement from us – contact us and we will send you one. Once it has been signed, you will receive a sticker for your badge, which authorises you to use a recording device during a particular performance.
Please note: there are specific recording restrictions placed on some of the Showcase concerts. Please contact us for more information.
All delegates are free to create recordings or photographs of the general WOMEX atmosphere (e.g. in the Trade Fair Hall) without a special agreement from WOMEX.
Those interested in audio-taping/filming a Conference Session, Networking Meeting, etc., please contact the speaker(s) beforehand to obtain their individual permission – please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be supplied with the relevant contact details.

Returning for yet another year, the WOMEX Radio Studio is equipped for both live broadcast and pre-recording, meaning that, however a radio show is made, it can be made at WOMEX. In previous years, the studio has seen animated discussion, interviews with artists and industry and live, impromptu performances from WOMEX artists, and this year promises to be no different.Radio Studio page
