A Tel Aviv festival in London? Get out of town.

A new festival celebrating Israel’s White City is taking place across London this September- with Tel Aviv’s music, food, drink, arts and style on display in a series of events and performances.

TLV in LDN” will be a brand-new four-day event from September 8th to the 11th. The festival will take place mainly in three locations in London: the Roundhouse in Camden, Cadogan Hall in Chelsea, and The Coronet in Elephant and Castle.

According to a press release, the festival will feature musical performances by Israeli electronic duo Infected Mushroom, DJ Guy Gerber, a series of classical and jazz pianists, as well as an entire evening dedicated to female acts, including those of Ester Rada, A-Wa and Marina Maximillian.

Eurovision winner Dana International will also be performing at the “Tel Aviv Beach Party” at the Coronet on Friday 8th.

Chef Shaul Ben Aderet, who is renowned for his Tel Aviv restaurant Blue Rooster, will represent Tel Aviv’s culinary world with five other guest chefs, “showcasing the breadth of cuisine from the region, which is fast becoming one of the most popular in the UK.” The food festival will be free to enter.

Israeli artist Ori Gersht has curated a digital art exhibition and fashion-house Maskit will be showcasing several of its collections as well.

Festival director Marc Worth, a British businessman and philanthropist with connections to Israel, said: “Tel Aviv is one of the world’s most open, tolerant, innovate, creative, mult-cultural and entrepreneurial of cities, much like London”, adding that it his mission “is 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.”

According to the festival’s website, sponsors include Israeli airline El Al, the Hilton hotel chain, Israeli Bank Leumi, the Zionist Federation, and the Israeli government.

Festival spokesperson Maayan Ohana told the Jerusalem Post on Tuesday that it was “possible” that protests might take place outside some of the venues, “like there are at everything Israeli that goes on in the world. But we won’t surrender and (the festival) will take place regardless.”

Ohana added that it was a possibility that London Mayor Sadiq Khan might attend the festival: “It could be he’ll attend one of the days, but nothing is finalized yet.”
