The 24th edition of WOMEX - the World Music Expo - will be held in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain from 24-28 October 2018. Each year, the WOMEX Showcase, Club, Film and Conference programme is created on an annual Call for Proposals inviting members of the international music community to apply to take part.

Call for Proposals

The Showcase, Club Summit and Conference selection is made each year by an independent Jury, and the Film programme is curated by our in-house Film team. WOMEX receives many high quality proposals for a limited number of slots, so the task is tough and the competition is strong.
