Tel Aviv might be 3,000 miles away, but Londoners can still experience the rich and diverse culture of this vibrant Israeli city, thanks to a special four-day festival next week.

TLV in LDN, from 8 to 11 September, is a four-day showcase of food, music, nightlife, arts and style direct from the Israeli city.

The hub of TLV in LDN is the Roundhouse in Camden, with satellite events taking place across the capital.

It will be transformed into a space where visitors can indulge their senses amid a bustling festival vibe, with events appealing to all ages.

The festival kicks off on Friday, 8 September, where the godfathers of psychedelic trance, Infected Mushroom, take to the Roundhouse stage.

Simultaneously, Israeli LGBT+ pioneers Shimon Shirazi and Eliad Cohen will host an unforgettable beach party at iconic club venue the Coronet in Elephant and Castle.

The four acts will perform songs inspired by their diverse backgrounds, fusing Ethio-jazz, Yemenite folk and Israeli pop into an experience that will be designed to inspire and enlighten.

Each performance will pay homage to the cultural diversity of Tel Aviv while touching on the female experience.

The Roundhouse will also host a free Tel Aviv food and drink festival over the weekend of 9 and 10 September.

Esteemed Israeli chef Shaul Ben Aderet will curate numerous food stalls, alongside five guest chefs, showcasing the breadth of cuisine from the region, which is fast becoming one of the most popular among diners in the UK.
