Fat Freddy's Drop join 2019 WOMADelaide lineup

Just another international act in a global lineup.

Funk-dub dabblers Fat Freddy's Drop have been announced as an addition to WOMADelaide's 2019 lineup less than 50 days before the event is set to kick off.

It's been five years since the Wellington seven-piece took to the WOMADelaide stage. Since then, their unique mix of dub, funk, soul, jazz and electronica have caused their fame to skyrocket, playing more than 1,000 gigs and earning over 750,000 record sales. Ahead of their 2018 album release, the outfit have teased fans with a new single, 'Trickle Down'.

Fat Freddy's Drop are in good company, joining the John Butler Trio, Julia Jacklin, Christine and the Queens, Mojo Juju and more. Alongside its killer lineup, WOMADelaide's program is jam-packed with 16 workshops, panels and artist discussions. Altogether, the festival has brought together acts from an incredible 25 countries which is no easy feat to accomplish.

WOMADelaide runs between Friday March 8 and Monday March 11. For tickets, head to the festival website.
