The city of festivals

Netanya International Clown Festival, now in its fifth year, will also host dozens of clown performances and plays, including original plays that will be staged during the three days of the festival (August 14-16), in all of the halls in Heychal Hatarbut and in the city center in new Independence Square. This year, too, dozens of international clown artists are expected to take part. They come from the realm of theater, circus, medical clowns and street clowns.

Two weeks later (August 28-30), Netanya will be home to the Festivocali, a festival dedicated entirely to Israeli music. Alongside numerous concerts, the street festival, held in Ir Yamim, will focus this year on three main performances: a performance dedicated to three Israel Prize laureates, a concert dedicated to the songs of the late Yossi Banai, and a tribute to 70 years of Mizrahi music. Performers will include Idan Amedi, David D’Or, Ilanit, Izhar Cohen, Alma Zohar, Moshe Lahav and the Big Tish, as well as Yoav Kutner and Yoav Ginai.

The traditional Beer Festival is coming back to Netanya with a variety of beers from around the world, live performances, cover bands, seating areas and more, on August 8-9 in the new Independence Square.
