Ziggy Marley – eight-time Grammy winner and son of reggae legend Bob Marley – leads the final announcement of 2020 WOMADelaide acts, which also features UK folk singer Laura Marling and Australia’s Kate Miller-Heidke and rapper Briggs.
The Adelaide Festival has unveiled a program for 2020 that includes a free concert in Elder Park, a fire ‘wonderland’ in the Botanic Gardens, 12-concert choral event 150 Psalms, cutting-edge theatre works and a giant doll’s house in Rundle Mall.
WOMADelaide has announced its first 20 acts for 2020, with the line-up led by Grammy-winning American R&B and gospel legend Mavis Staples, the ‘golden voice of Africa’ Salif Keita and Australian party band The Cat Empire.
