Robert Plant has been announced among the first acts to appear at this year's WOMAD festival.

The former Led Zeppelin frontman will appear at the bash at Wiltshire’s Charlton Park on July 27-29 alongside Buena Vista Social Club, Raghu Dixit, Ane Brun and Terem Quartet.

The legend will unveil his new project, the Sensational Space Shifters at the festival for what will be the event's 30th anniversary. The project will feature members of his former backing band Strange Sensation and regular collaborator Justin Adams. For more information head to Womad.org.

Among the performers at last year's event were Rodrigo y Gabriela and Gogol Bordello.

The event was founded by Peter Gabriel. Echo And The Bunnymen were among the performers who appeared at the first ever WOMAD.

Over the last 30 years, the organisers have hosted festivals across the globe, from Sicily to Seattle, Adelaide to Abu Dhabi. This is the sixth time its flagship UK festival will be at Charlton Park, near Malmesbury in Wiltshire.
