2014: Record crowds of 39,000 were at the Womad festival in heatwave conditions.

Acts from across the world and an audience from all over the UK enjoyed a sun-drenched long weekend of music, dance and food at Charlton Park near Malmesbury.

The festival moved to North Wiltshire from Reading in 2007 and immediately made a huge impact on the local community.

Schoolchildren were able take part in workshops and to perform with some of the acts, and learn about different cultures at the same time.

Headliners that year included African superstar Youssou N'Dour, Irish singer Sinead O'Connor and Indian composer Nitin Sawhney. Soul star Bobby Womack, who was due to top the line-up on the final night, died days before the festival.

This year marks the 40th birthday of the festival and to celebrate a Live at WOMAD 1982 album will be released, featuring Echo and the Bunnymen, Womad founder Peter Gabriel, Simple Minds, The Beat, and The Drummers of Burundi.

The event starts on July 28.
