From Lately, 10:30 pm on 13 March 2020

The WOMAD 2020 music festival is all go at the Bowl of Brooklands in New Plymouth. The international festival is marking its 16th anniversary on our shores, and over three days more than 40 performances from local and international artists will take place.

However one artist, Kim So Ra from South Korea, had to pull out due to travel restrictions due to Covd-19 and Ziggy Marley also announced earlier this week he could no longer attend due to unforeseen family circumstances.

RNZ's Brad 'Sticky' Warrington chats to Karyn about how it's all kicking off.
