25 Years Ago: WOMAD

09.18/19.93 – WOMAD | Shattered PR

This was an epic two days!  Like fucking AMAZING!!!  Like seriously super fucking fun!  My great friend Cathy Watson hooked this up and I will always thank her for that.  The 1993 WOMAD festival was Peter Gabriel’s idea.  I got to go to and shoot the LA show at Cal State Dominguez Hills and the San Francisco show at Golden Gate Park.

The line-up was insane!  Peter Gabriel w/Sinead O’Connor, Crowded House, Ziggy Marley, PM Dawn, Stereo MC’s, Sheila Chandra, Drummers of Burundi and so many more!!!  I was lucky to have a laminate so I got to go anywhere I wanted.  Shoot whatever I wanted!  Of course I spent most of the time on the side of the stage!  Shot as much as I could, but I just enjoyed all the performances.  My favorite was Stereo MC’s by far!!!  I loved Ziggy and Peter, but Stereo MC’s blew me away!!!

Every time I hear any of these bands now I think back of those two unforgettable days.  I think about the fun, the performances and my great friend Cathy Watson.  Woo hoo!!!
