The “Winter Noize” (Sheon Horef) festival returns to Jerusalem this year promising another lively and colorful celebration of Israeli modern culture. Hosting an array of music concerts, dance shows, art exhibitions, film screenings, poetry readings and cooking classes the festival lights up the city and warms up the souls of its inhabitants during the coldest, quietest month of the year. Giving the stage to 200 artists, poets, musicians and dancers the festival serves as a reminder that Jerusalem is not just a city for the religious. Equally there exists a secular, alternative scene making it a hub for the young and trendy.
The festival takes place every Monday evening throughout the month of February each time in different areas of the city. Events are held in various magical and undiscovered bars, cafes, book stores, clothes shops and galleries as well as on several pedestrian streets themselves.
