For two nights only you can experience New Blood Live in 3D on the big screen in selected cinemas across the UK. Pre-Order tickets for the screenings.
Over two nights in March 2011, Peter Gabriel took to the stage at the HMV Hammersmith Apollo, London, in the company of the 46-strong New Blood Orchestra, with the entire event filmed in 3D. The extraordinary show features a handful of the covers from Scratch My Back, but the majority of songs are taken from Peter's solo career and given the same glorious orchestral treatment.

"With hundreds of artists from everywhere in the world, everyone's WOMAD will be different," The Evening Standard
This year at Charlton Park, Real World Records will be represented by a range of exciting and diverse artists: Aurelio (Honduras); The Creole Choir Of Cuba (Cuba); Dub Colossus (Ethiopia/UK); Iarla O Lionaird (Ireland); and Samuel Yirga (Ethiopia).
For those of you that are attending please check out the official WOMAD iPhone app (also available for Android users ). The app is intended to complement anyone attending the festival so they can have offline access to the line ups, artist background, maps and other helpful information.
With weather reports looking positive, what better way to enjoy this coming weekend! Hope to see you all there.
While drilling for oil in Ecuador's Amazon rainforest region, Texaco - which merged with Chevron in 2001 - operated without concern for the environment or local residents. The company deliberately dumped billions of gallons of toxic wastewater into rivers and streams, spilled millions of gallons of crude oil, and abandoned hazardous waste in hundreds of unlined open-air pits littered throughout the region. The result is widespread devastation of the rainforest ecosystem and local indigenous communities, and one of the worst environmental disasters in history.
Due to Chevron's toxic contamination of their soil, rivers and streams, and groundwater, local indigenous and campesino communities continue to suffer an epidemic of cancer, birth defects, miscarriages, and other ailments. Chevron has never carried out a meaningful clean up of the mess it is responsible for, and its infrastructure continues to poison the communities of the Ecuadorian Amazon.
In February 2011, after an 18 year-long David vs. Goliath battle for justice, local people won a judgment against Chevron, with the court in Ecuador ordering the company to pay more than $9 billion to clean up widespread pollution, and provide potable water and health care for affected communities. Unfortunately, while people in the area continue to suffer and die from cancer and other oil-related illness, Chevron has declared that it will fight to avoid paying to clean up its mess "until hell freezes over."
Since 2002, Amazon Watch and our Clean Up Ecuador Campaign has been working with shareholders, consumers, and other concerned people to support justice for the communities of the Ecuadorian Amazon.
