Israel Festival in Jerusalem 2018 E-mail

The Israel Festival, an internationally renowned interdisciplinary festival held each year in Jerusalem, will take place from 23 May to 9 June. The festival was founded in 1961 and is celebrating its 57th anniversary this year.

Each year, the festival features high-quality productions in dance, music, drama and performance theatre from all over the world, as well as original Israeli productions and free outdoor performances for the general public.

This year’s Israel Festival, which marks the State of Israel’s 70th year of independence, will be hosting leading artists in dance, music, theatre, and performance art. At the same time, it will present, in a first-time collaboration with the Israeli Foreign Ministry, a large-scale showcase of original Israeli works that will be presented to dozens of leading international festival directors, and a wide variety of original Israeli works.

An opening event titled Hiphopland, a sizzling celebration of local hip-hop culture, will feature top Israeli hip-hop artists Echo, Jimbo J, Nechi Nech, System Ali, Peled, Cafe Shahor Hazak, Karolina, Shaanan Street & Guy Mar and others. Along with DJs, breakdancers and projection mapping artists, they will be inspired by the ultimate text that begs to be responded to as part of Israel’s 70th anniversary celebrations: Israel’s Declaration of Independence.
