Tel Aviv might be 3,000 miles away, but Londoners can still experience the rich and diverse culture of this vibrant Israeli city, thanks to a special four-day festival next week.
TLV in LDN, from 8 to 11 September, is a four-day showcase of food, music, nightlife, arts and style direct from the Israeli city.
The hub of TLV in LDN is the Roundhouse in Camden, with satellite events taking place across the capital.
It will be transformed into a space where visitors can indulge their senses amid a bustling festival vibe, with events appealing to all ages.
The festival kicks off on Friday, 8 September, where the godfathers of psychedelic trance, Infected Mushroom, take to the Roundhouse stage.
Simultaneously, Israeli LGBT+ pioneers Shimon Shirazi and Eliad Cohen will host an unforgettable beach party at iconic club venue the Coronet in Elephant and Castle.
Shirazi and Cohen bring with them international pop icon Dana International, who will give an exclusive performance with Israeli dance troupe Mayumana.
Four incredible female artists are set to ignite London’s music scene on Sunday, 10 September with Women Power: A Night of Musical Fusion, when the multi-talented Israeli musicians Ester Rada, Mira Awad, Marina Maximilian and A-WA will take to the stage at the Roundhouse.
The four acts will perform songs inspired by their diverse backgrounds, fusing Ethio-jazz, Yemenite folk and Israeli pop into an experience that will be designed to inspire and enlighten.
Each performance will pay homage to the cultural diversity of Tel Aviv while touching on the female experience.
The Roundhouse will also host a free Tel Aviv food and drink festival over the weekend of 9 and 10 September.
Esteemed Israeli chef Shaul Ben Aderet will curate numerous food stalls, alongside five guest chefs, showcasing the breadth of cuisine from the region, which is fast becoming one of the most popular among diners in the UK.
A household name in Tel Aviv, Ben Aderet is the owner and head chef of three Israeli eateries: Kimmel, his flagship French restaurant in trendy Neve Tzedek; Kimmel in the Gilboa, a bistro in the Gilboa Mountains, and Blue Rooster, set in east Tel Aviv.
For the TLV in LDN festival, Ben Aderet will take traditional Israeli dishes and give them his own modern flair to offer the public a taste of authentic Israeli cuisine.
Rounding off the festival is a performance from Pianomania at Cadogan Hall. Get ready to hear music like never before, as three grand pianos played by world-class concert and jazz pianists alongside singer Marina Maximilian take to one stage to bring fans the concert of a lifetime.
The spectacular evening will be filled with classics from Bach, Mozart and Tchaikovsky, blended with favourite jazz standards and contemporary Israeli music.
Performed in unique arrangements, Pianomania will be joined on this evening, for one night only, by award-winning British soprano Gemma Summerfield.
TLV in LDN takes place at a variety of locations across London, including the Roundhouse, Cadogan Hall and the Coronet, from 8 to 11 September.
The food festival is free, while tickets for evening performances start from £10 per person.
