With limited Showcase slots available during any year's WOMEX, it is inevitable that there will be some artists who seek a further opportunity to present themselves.

Add to that the many regional, national, organisational or commercial interests who are looking for a chance to expose their artists or services, and you can see why offWOMEX has become such a popular feature.

About the Showcase Festival

"WOMEX is an annual highlight and a center of my curatorial process. It's a great opportunity to discover new artists, connect with colleagues from all over the globe and from home, too." Bill Bragin (USA) , Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts

The peak of global diversity - featuring local legends and freshest talent from strictly traditional to cutting edge. With official Showcases, offWOMEX, the Opening and Award Showcase , more than 40 acts from anywhere and everywhere are spotlighted.

"WOMEX has been the kickstarter for several of my bands as a showcase there brings out actual buyers and translates into tours: thank you WOMEX."
Heidi Fleming (Canada) , President, FAMGroup
