Each year, WOMEX assembles a broad selection of artists. The jury-selected acts will meet an audiences of dedicated international concert and festival bookers, tour promoters and venues, labels, distributors, journalists and industry professionals – everyone you need to help launch, re-launch, sustain and expand your career. In 2017, 303 artists from 46 countries took to seven stages as part of the Showcase Festival.

WOMEX explicitly welcomes proposals from all backgrounds and especially encourages proposals which increase the diversity of the international music scene - be it culturally, regionally or as regards gender.

We welcome performances of all forms and styles – traditional, classical, modern, popular and electronic – with sets lasting 45 minutes.

We can't wait to hear your wonderful submissions!
