UPDATE: Sadly we have to inform you that SXSW 2020 got cancelled. Read their statement in the link below.

WOMEX will return once again to Austin, Texas, USA to present the annual WOMEX Night at the SXSW festival.

The WOMEX Night is part of a bilateral, long-term partnership between WOMEX and SXSW, designed to open up new networking avenues to delegates of the two events.

As Todd Puckhaber of SXSW states "I have been attending WOMEX for many years. The conference has proven to be an invaluable tool in shaping a stronger presence of global sounds at SXSW. It is the key networking opportunity for world music artists and professionals alike. I am pleased and honoured to have the WOMEX Showcase once again at SXSW."

2020's WOMEX Night will be held on Thursday, 19 March at the Flamingo Cantina.
