9-11th March 2007 .Botanic Park. Adelaide.

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 .

2007 Recordings

  The ABC once again filmed many sets and recorded a few sets for radio National .The ABC's strategy between 2006-2007 seemed to be aimed at providing a number of shows for their new digital channel, ABC 2, as most of the sets were only broadcast on this channel. Radio National seemed fairly starved of broadcasts , with only a few sets being broadast on Music Deli, which had taken over broadcasts from festivals such as Womad and Port Fairy after the demise of the much loved ' Live On Stage" , The consequence of this was that we mainly received 30 minute sets with the occasional 50 minute broadcast and not all that many of those either.
