The Worldwide Festival was born in Sete at 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.
For the ninth edition in Sète, they welcome Seth Troxler, Theo Parrish, Four Tet, Special Request, Rainer Truby, Floating Points, Jonwayne, Osunlade, and many more are confirmed for the week-long summer party in southern France, from 30th June to 6th July.
For the last 8 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 four editions in Singapore, the Festival has now its own winter event in Leysin, Switzerland.
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.
