Huge name joins the bill.

Next year WOMADelaide (World Music & Dance Festival) will celebrate its 20th anniversary and to help commemorate the massive milestone, a second round of acts have been named to join the already-impressive bill and leading the charge is none other than iconic UK group, Asian Dub Foundation.

The politically charged electro band will make their WOMAdelaide debut at Adelaide's Botanic Park from 11-14 March, while an additional 32 acts have also been confirmed for the festival. 

Speaking on the headliner act, director Ian Scobie said, "It's exciting to be able to present such a feisty international act in Asian Dub Foundation on the main stage on the final night of the festival next year."

"They will undoubtedly close the night, and the festival, with the power and energy that their audiences have come to expect."
