Matisyahu has been lauded in Israel for last year’s victory over boycott activists who tried to get his show at a Spanish reggae festival canceled. The American rapper was asked by concert organizers to state his politics on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and when he refused, he was dropped from the lineup. After pressure, he was put back on the performance list and defiantly sang “Jerusalem” to a crowd of heckling pro-Palestinian protesters. He then went onto perform as the closing act of the Jerusalem Sacred Music Festival in September, and returned a month later for a sold-out show at Sultan’s Pool.

Opening for Matisyahu will be Israeli musician Ishay Ribo. Tickets start from NIS 170.
