EBU members have free access, other radio journalists may apply to use the radio facilities. Email us if you are interested in booking:

Interview Rooms
If you are in need of a quiet spot to conduct interviews during WOMEX, a number of interview rooms will be available to book at the daytime venue. We would also be happy to provide you the contact details of any showcase artist and their representatives, conference speaker or film presenter you may need.

Recording at WOMEX
Audio/Audiovisual recording permissions are granted only on prior approval.

If you would like to make audio/audio-visual recordings of any of the WOMEX Showcases, you need a special agreement from WOMEX – contact us and we will send you one. Once it has been signed, you will receive a sticker for your badge, which authorises you to use a recording device during a particular performance.

Please note: there are specific recording restrictions placed on some of the Showcase concerts. Please contact us for more information.

Recording the Trade Fair, Conference and Delegates
All delegates are free to create recordings or photographs of the general WOMEX atmosphere (e.g. in the Trade Fair Hall) without a special agreement from WOMEX.

Those interested in audio-taping/filming a Conference Session, Networking Meeting, etc., please contact the speaker(s) beforehand to obtain their individual permission.
