Imagine a place where you’re free to be whoever you want to be. A place where the music is absolutely amazing and the art is from another planet. That place is the InDnegev festival that has occurred in the Negev Desert annually for the past nine years.
What keeps the festival unique is the music and the people who come to hear it. The community has grown together since the first festival and now includes many teenagers and families with small children.
This year the lineup was filled with some names heard on the radio, like Jane Bordeaux and Lola Marsh, and there was a surprise visit from Israeli rock star/X Factor judge Rami Fortis. But alongside these names more then 80 indie bands kept the crowd jumping and excited for three full days.
The festival’s four stages gave the crowd unlimited options to hear music, sing and dance. For example, Ethiopian music by The Ethobeat Orcastra Alemito, and great sounds from Aviv Gadge. All around the location was artwork by young, new artists that just want to be seen. This year astronauts, spaceships and the solar system decorated the desert landscape.
