Berlin/Manchester: WOMEX, the Worldwide Music Expo, will proudly mark its 30th-anniversary edition in Manchester, UK, from 23 – 27 October 2024. To mark this milestone event, Piranha Arts, the organisers of WOMEX have launched an exceptional offer for this year: a special anniversary rate, aptly titled CelebRate, for a limited time only, offering a 30 euro discount on the Smart Rate available until Friday, 3 May 2024 (this discount is not available on other rates).

From Wednesday 23 to Sunday 27 October, the WOMEX delegates will venture upon a five-day musical journey in the multi-cultural and beautiful city of Manchester in the UK. Situated in the northwest of England and often dubbed the ‘capital of the North’, this city is known across the world as the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, and for its proud history in science, politics, music, arts, and sport. Manchester’s rich history of innovation, iconic music scene and passionate community of artists and music enthusiasts make it an ideal host for this milestone 30th edition. For WOMEX 24, Piranha Arts will join forces with Manchester Music City as the local partner.

Each year, WOMEX enables global music professionals to come together to engage, network, listen, explore new ideas that are trending internationally, create new opportunities and share critical insights and practical knowledge to boost the economy and presence of our great global music scene.
