The International Music Exposition “WOMEX” (World Music Expo), the world’s most important event of its kind, will take place in Thessaloniki from the 17th until 21st of October 2012. WOMEX is considered a benchmark by world music experts from all over the world. The exposition was held for the first time in Berlin in 1994. Since then, it has been held in Essen, Brussels, Stockholm, Rotterdam, Newcastle, Seville, Marseille and Copenhagen (for the last three years). This is the first time that it is taking place in Southeastern Europe, with Thessaloniki as the Greek city chosen to host the exposition. It is also the first time in the history of WOMEX that there will be a special stage, CLUB GLOBALKAN, which gives a platform to local creative talents and musicians from Southeastern Europe.

One day ticket : 17€ / person

3 nights ticket : 40€ / person

Tickets will be available at the Exhibition Center Gates
