TLVA four-day festival showcasing Tel Aviv’s thriving arts and music scene will be taking place in London in from 8-11 September in Camden’s iconic Roundhouse and across multiple sites in the capital.

The Tel Aviv in London festival will be an opportunity to celebrate the Israeli city’s rich cultural landscape, encompassing gastronomy, music, nightlife, arts and style.

There will also be a food and drinks festival and a beach party at The Coronet, with performances from well-known Israeli singers like Dana International to celebrate Tel Aviv’s LGBT scene.

The festival will feature a live concert with prominent female artists from a variety of backgrounds, plus a performance by Infected Mushroom – “the godfathers of psychedelic trance” – and a digital art exhibition curated by internationally-renowned artist Ori Gersht.

On the last day of the event, three top Israeli pianists, performing classics from Bach, Mozart and Tchaikovsky, together with favourite jazz standards and contemporary Israeli music, will be joined for the night by award-winning British soprano Gemma Summerfield.

There will also be workshops on Israeli cookery, dancing, drumming, and theatre, as well as a talk from Arab-Israeli actress and singer-songwriter Mira Awad.

Throughout the festival, street food stalls, curated by Israeli chef Shaul Ben Aderet, will offer festival-goers a taste of Tel Aviv gastronomy.

TLV in LDN director Marc Worth said the mission was “to enlighten Londoners to a part of the world they may not know too much about, or to a part of the world that they may have preconceived notions of”.
