Florence + The Machine - WOMADelaide 2023


Held on the traditional lands of the Kaurna People of the Adelaide plains, WOMADelaide - WOMAD - is the iconic open-air festival set in Adelaide’s stunning Botanic Park / Tainmuntilla. An award-winning celebration of the world's very best music, arts & dance since 1992.


Fronted by enigmatic singer Florence Welch, Florence + The Machine are one of the most influential and spellbinding live bands in the world. Wielding her powerful voice like a flaming sword, Welch plays with ideas of identity, masculinity and femininity, always delivering dramatic and celebratory performances. Having missed dancing and being in the whirl of movement and togetherness during lockdown, she is back in her element with her fifth studio album, Dance Fever. Released in 2022, it was described by Rolling Stone magazine as “an ecstatic prayer for post-pandemic redemption” and by Pitchfork as “an ode to the power of dance, the freedom in movement”. Having sold 17 million albums, won multiple Brit Awards, been nominated for six Grammys and topped charts around the world, her adoring Australian fans are ready to welcome her back after four years as she makes her WOMADelaide debut.
