Recordings and set lists.

    For most of the history of Womadelaide the good old Australian Broadcasting Corporation ( affectionately known as Auntie ) has documented the festival. However there have been lapses and rather strange turns in policy ( mostly due to budget cuts ) so there are gaps. Also, the ABC only ever set up recording facilities on stages 1-3 and some of the more interesting acts have appeared elsewhere. So its been left to tapers to fill the gaps here and there.

2008 Recordings

  The ABC once again decided not to film the festival , so we cannot expect to see any TV broadasts of this year. So far there have been many podcasts available online from community radio, which indicates that radio recordings have been made of many artists but so far only a 50 minute set of Mavis Staples show has been broadcast on ABC radio Nationals Music Deli program .
