About the Sunbeat Festival
The Sunbeat Festival was first held in 2011. A huge success, the festival presented to its mostly Israeli audience some of the most energetic Global Beats acts from Israel and beyond. In the following years it continued to draw a warm, positive & open minded crowd who originate from Israel and beyond.
Sunbeat takes place among the green mountains of the Northern Galilee, where cool streams, endless vegetation, and green meadows have created a venue somewhat reminiscent of the Garden of Eden.
Sunbeat represents the new global village culture, which draws its inspiration from east and west, fusing different cultural backgrounds and musical heritages – presenting everything from the traditional folklore to the cutting edge technology and sounds of tomorrow.
Besides the live shows, the Sunbeat Festival hosts DJ’s and producers, visual art installations, circus and dance acts, and more.
Sunbeat 2016 will take place at the Jordan River Park, between Safed and Kiryat Shemona, in the Northern Galilee region of northern Israel, around 2.5 hours from Tel Aviv. Transport from Tel Aviv is available for those who do not have cars.
