The festival will feature leading global DJs, including Dutch DJ Hardwell, in several venues throughout the city.

Hardwell has long been one of the names most associated with electronic dance music and will be making his first return to the stage in Jerusalem following a three-year break from performances. He’ll headline a party Thursday night May 26 in Sacher Park that will continue through the night, according to the organizers, Lifetime Festival.

“Jerusalem is the capital of culture and I’m proud and excited to host one of the leading DJ’s in the world, Hardwell. I’m thrilled and happy that after a three year break, Hardwell chose to make his return to the stage in Jerusalem,” said Lion.
