Israel is holding its first international electronic music festival dedicated to the art of "raving," at Timna Park north of Eilat. The festival will be a gathering for those who prefer to achieve High Holiday transcendence by praying to rhythmic electronic music. Two stages will be set up inside the park amidst the red desert mountains of southern Israel. While raves are often associated with teenagers and 20-somethings seeking a spiritual high through an intoxication of the senses, Holy Rave focuses on the clean-cut side of raving and is open to people of all ages as well as families. It will be organized like a new-age fair of sorts, featuring live DJ performances by some of the biggest names in electronic music, a holistic "village" with classes and art workshops, an array of children's activities, and chill-out corners. A camping ground will be designated for those who want to nest for the entire weekend. Festival organizers stress that the event is organized in conjunction with all safety and law enforcement authorities. September 11-15, Timna Park, www.holyrave.com, (09) 882-2550.
