The Abu Gosh Festival is pure paradise for lovers of vocal music, and has evolved over its 20 year history into one of the most important vocal music festivals around.
The Festival takes place twice a year, each Sukkot and Shavuot, and usually lasts between 3-5 days. This Sukkot (2018) it takes place on September 28 – October 1.
There is an interesting collection of music this year, including performances Elizabethan love songs by Sting and the Beatles and a celebration of Beethoven’s Scottish songs! For further details of what’s on offer, and to buy tickets, see the official website in English.
As usual, festivities take place in two of Abu Gosh’s most well-known churches: the Crusader-Benedictine Church, built in the 12th century, situated in the heart of the village; and the Kiryat Ye’arim Church, located at the top of the hill, overlooking Abu-Gosh.
