The Worldwide Festival was born in Sete (South of France) in July 2006 by the joint initiative of Freshly Cut and Gilles Peterson based on one simple idea : To create a different festival, offering a unique artistic selection inspired by Gilles’s radio show “Worldwide”.
With its unique line-up of artists, the WF aims to welcome festival goers to its exceptional venues in various cities around the world, and to highlight the authenticity and rich culture of these cities. The Worldwide Festival cultivates this specific aim and offers a unique holiday experience, with the idea being to create several WF events throughout the year in different parts of the world.
For the last 9 years this formula has been tried and tested in Sète in the South of France, where the Worldwide Festival has seen great success. After expanding to Asia with one edition in Shanghai and 4 editions in Singapore, the Festival has now its own winter event in Leysin, Switzerland. Worldwide baby!
