Showcase Festival

Celebrating creativity and diversity, from ground-breaking new talents to established maestros, from innovation to tradition, and from acoustic to electronic. The WOMEX Showcase Festival spotlights more than 60 acts from around the globe every year.

Each year, WOMEX assembles a broad selection of artists. The Jury-selected 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 WOMEX 17 Showcase was comprised of the Official Selection, DJ Summit, Kato Connections and offWOMEX programmes, and the WOMEX Artist Award.

To find the full line-ups of the WOMEX Showcase programmes over the past 23 editions, see the WOMEX Showcase Archive.

The WOMEX Showcase programme is created based on an annual call for proposals inviting artists and their representatives to apply to bring their music to the WOMEX stage. The final programme will then be chosen by our independent, international jury: the Seven Samurai.
