Annual Electronic Music Festival BPM Comes To Tel Aviv This September
Israel is known for its stellar DJs, including famous names like Offer Nissim and DJ Skazi, who have international reputations for their quality beats. Now the country will get to enjoy a new crop of local DJs as the BPM Festival, the annual electronic music celebration that originated in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, comes to Tel Aviv for the first time ever, according to Billboard.com
On September 30, the first day of Rosh Hashana (Jewish New Yeark), electronic music fans can flock to Tel Aviv’s Yarkon Park for the one-day festival, which will feature popular house music headliners Acid Pauli, Âme, Danny Tenaglia, and DJ Koze. There will also be a slew of other international and local Israeli artists spread across four stages.
During the festival, the park will be divided into four jungle-themed stages called Legacy, Fusion, Spiritual, and Minimal. Each stage will be accompanied by art displays, video art shows, and a “rich, diversified and stirring international and local line up covering all of the musical spectrum between past, present and future,” event organizers write on the Tel Aviv festival’s official Facebook event page.
The BPM Festival was previously located in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, and move to Portimao, Portugal after a shooting at the 2017 event, which left five people dead.
The next Portugual show happens this September just weeks before the event in Israel.
BPM was brought to Tel Aviv by The Block Club, one of Tel Aviv’s most well-known dance clubs, as well as Sunrise Kingdom, the veteran “sound camp” bringing electronic and house music to Midburn, the six-day event held in the Negev desert since 2014.
