Recordings at WOMEX

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. Anyone wishing to plug into the mixing desk, please email us: You need to let us know beforehand as the number of outputs is limited.

Should you be interested in recording a Conference Session, Networking Meeting, etc., please contact the speaker(s) beforehand to obtain their individual permission - email us and we will send you their contact details.

You do not need to sign any WOMEX agreement for recordings of the "general WOMEX atmosphere", e.g. in Trade Fair Hall.


Delegates do not need special permission to take photos at WOMEX. However, please do mind the following rules for taking photos at the Showcase Festival:
  • no flash
  • no disturbing clicking sounds
  • no access onto the stage
Photographers will have access to the area right in front of the Showcase stages - there won't be any fences. However, only the three Official WOMEX Photographers will be allowed to go backstage / onstage.

During the event we will provide the press with a variety of event photos in hi-res. However, should you need any specific photos of the event, please contact the Official WOMEX Photographers to discuss terms.
