New Zealand's premier music festival has been hit with rain and strong bouts of wind today.

LATEST: The wind is zipping down the Global Village, which seems to be a tunnel for the gusts.

At 11.40am the wind whipped a corner off a wall of the Taranaki Daily News chill out zone tent.

The wall has since been fixed with cable ties.

Despite the wind and rain the temperature at the event is warm and sitting at 21 degrees celcius, with a humidity of 83 per cent.

New Plymouth man Terry Darby was watching with interest as New Plymouth experienced a taste of Cyclone Lusi and staying positive in the face of a wet day at Womad.

"On a positive note we've done extremely well with the weather up until now and we would hope by the afternoon it would brighten up," he said.

An onsite weather expert has said this morning that the worst of the weather will be over by the early afternoon.

The outdoor music festival continues until 11.45pm.

Highlights from today include the Boomerang Project at 1pm on the main stage, and Arrested Development at 8.45pm, also on the main stage.
