The annual Tamar Festival, held deep in the desert of southern Israel, has fast become one of the true delights on the Israeli music festival scene…
This year it returns once again to the Masada/Ein Gedi region, and features some of Israel’s biggest musical talent over four days of concerts under the magical desert night skies. But also watch out for spectacular sunrise concerts from Masada, and the beautiful Botanical Gardens at Ein Gedi!
The Tamar Festival, which this year runs over Sukkot from September 21-25, will host some incredible talent, including the following:
- September 21: Idan Raichel Project and a sunrise concert by Mosh Ben Ari
- September 22: Erez Lev Ari, Avitar Banai, the Friends of Natasha, Dani Robas, and a sunrise concert by Beri Sacharov
- September 23: Ehud Banai, Shalom Hanoch, Shem Tov Levi, and a sunrise concert by Ivri Lider
- September 24: Esther Rada, Avraham Tal, Matisyahu, HaDag Nahash, and a sunrise concert featuring Shlomi Shabban
