2014 Festival highlights

We saw 14 incredible performances over two full days in April last year, kicking off Austin's WobeonFest in style. Angelique Kidjo, Collie Buddz, Bomba Estereo, Fatoumata Diawara, Red Baraat, Atash, Hard Proof Afrobeat..... and so much more. Here's a sizzling recap of that unforgettable weekend's festivities:

What to expect in this year's fest

This year's fest will continue the journey we began in April last year and cemented in September - bringing ground-breaking global music artists and their art to Austin, with a few changes.  Here's a snapshot:

New Date, New Venue

This year, we're combining our World Music festival and our Peace Concert into a single action-packed day featuring 10+ bands over 2 stages -- SAT SEPT 20 at the beautiful new Asian American Resource Center on Cameron Road

Expanded Community Initiative

We've teamed up with The Amala Foundation, our Peace Concert partners, to create an expanded community network that will contribute to - and benefit monetarily from - this year's festival.

Crowdfunding + Ticket Pre-Sale commences Mon April 21, 2014

Last year, the community rose up to our challenge and helped us fund the Peace Concert in September through their generosity. We will be running a 2-month crowdfunding campaign to similarly raise funds to support the cause of global music, local community in Austin.
