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.

   Now we at the archive do not condone the unofficial taping of shows , especially for commercial gain, but we are an historical archive so we believe that its part of our function to let people know what music has been preserved over the years by whatever means . We present this list in that spirit , we do not know where you can acquire these recordings , whether they be TV , FM, AM or audience recordings and we will not help anyone in their search to acquire them , so please don't waste your time asking as we won't reply- unless you have some official research project you want help with .

2005 Recordings

   This was the year that the ABC deserted the festival , no sign of the TV cameras that had covered stage one and two in 2001 , there were a number of radio recordings made at Port Fairy in 2003, but Womadelaide missed out. There were a lot of complaints, so there has always been an ABC presence since.
