Florence + The Machine (UK)
One of the most influential and spellbinding live bands in the world. Wielding her powerful voice like a flaming sword, Florence Welch plays with ideas of identity, masculinity and femininity, always delivering dramatic and celebratory performances. 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.
Bon Iver (USA)
Bon Iver, led by singer-songwriter Justin Vernon, will perform a set that spans their 15-year career on the opening night of the festival, Friday 10 March. In 2011, their eponymous release won the Grammy for Best Alternative Music Album and Best New Artist. The dreamy Wisconsin outfit have gone on to be nominated a further nine times, including for Album of the Year and Record of the Year for their 2019 release i,i.Gratte Ciel’s Place des AngesFranceWritten and directed by Pierrot Bidon and Stéphane Girard
One of the world’s most extraordinary aerial performances and an Australian exclusive, Place des Anges will be performed nightly at WOMADelaide 2023, transforming Botanic Park into a magical wonderland of music, acrobatics and death-defying theatrics. Softly cascading feathers fall from the heavens, as angels swirl amongst the stars and gradually descend to earth to play with the audience.
“Mortgage the house. Sell your possessions. Do anything that makes it possible to see Place des Anges from French geniuses, Gratte Ciel. It is absolutely wonderful, with dozens of gleaming white angels sailing high above the crowd, a seemingly endless rain of feathers gently falling on the thousands upon thousands of delighted faces. It is uplifting, affirming and sheer beauty.” – The Advertiser, March 2018
