The spirit of Tel Aviv arrives in London tomorrow for a festival bringing Israel’s cosmopolitan centre to the heart of Camden.
From Friday, Camden’s iconic Roundhouse showcases the best of Tel Aviv’s thriving arts and music scene, as well as a food and drinks festival and a beach party at The Coronet.
The event, branded as ‘TLV in LDN,’ will deliver on sights and sound, featuring 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.
The four-day family-friendly event also promises workshops for youngsters on chocolate-making and Israeli cookery, with seven-to- 13-year-olds helped to make Lekach, the traditional honey cake served at Rosh Hashanah.
Elsewhere younger visitors can learn rhythm and movement, drumming, and theatre, while others can hear from the Palestinian-Israeli actress and singer-songwriter Mira Awad, who will deliver a talk on her personal story, dealing with her complex identity.
Throughout the weekend street food stalls, curated by Israeli chef Shaul Ben Aderet, will offer festival-goers a taste of Tel Aviv gastronomy.
