Madison World Music Festival

Presented By Wisconsin Union Theater

Music and dance from unique and unexpected parts of the world, this festival is a celebration of cultures. Historically the Madison World Music Festival has taken place on the famous Memorial Union Terrace and the Willy Street Fair every fall. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Madison World Music Festival is a virtual event!

The 2020 Madison World Music Festival featured artists from Ho-Chunk Nation, Russia, Guinea, Latin America, Jordan and Haiti. We hope you joined us for this virtual event and are looking forward next year!
