Celebrating creativity and diversity, from ground-breaking new talents to established maestros, from innovation to tradition, and from acoustic to electronic. The Showcase concerts spotlight more than 60 acts from around the globe every year.
The acts play in front of one of the largest audiences anywhere 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.
The programme is created based on an annual call for proposals. Our independent, international jury then chooses the finale programme. Five of them select the showcases, our dedicated Club Summit curator selects the Club Summit showcases together with the WOMEX team.
The Call for Proposals for WOMEX 20 in Budapest is now closed. It will open again in January 2021 for WOMEX 21.
