As part of its sponsorship agreement with WOMADelaide, Internet service provider (ISP), Internode, will offer free, high definition live streams of key performances from the 2013 instalment of the event.
WOMAD, the World of Music, Arts and Dance, was founded by Peter Gabriel in 1982. The Australian version, WOMADelaide, launched in 1992. This year’s four-day event will take place in Adelaide’s Botanic Park from March 8 to 11.
In its second year sponsoring WOMADelaide, Internode, as Presenting Partner, has finalised agreements to broadcast reggae musician, Jimmy Cliff; Australian band, The Cat Empire; South Africa’s Soweto Gospel Choir; Italian band, Nidi D’arac.
Internode said that it would also announce more livestream acts before the festival kicks off.
“We’re making WOMADelaide accessible to music lovers who can’t attend the festival in person by livestreaming, in high definition, a number of performances from ‘Internode Stage One’ via our national Content Delivery Network (CDN),” Internode founder, Simon Hackett, said.
“This is a win-win by providing broader exposure for artists and by making brilliant new content available online, both during and after WOMADelaide, through the Internode CDN.”
The stream will be accessible from Internode’s Web site.
