About

The 13th edition Showcase brings new tidings:

Special whole-week festival
With an outstanding group of international guests
and an outstanding group of the finest Israeli musicians.
featuring all styles and genres, together, on the Jerusalem-Tel Aviv axis

November 22rd-27th 2022
Each year during November, dozens of music industry professionals come to Israel from all over the globe: festival directors, venue and club owners, producers, artistic directors, booking agencies, record labels, promoters, journalists, writers, radio hosts, and international talent scouts. These and many others come to see, hear, and experience a taste of the Israeli music scene.

Until 2019, the festival was divided into two parts: one devoted to Rock, Indie, and electronic music, and the other to Jazz and World music

2021 took us on a new and exciting journey, which maximizes the musical, professional, and personal experience of the IMSF festival. We mixed it all together!
IMSF MIX#2

Rock’n’roll, Jazz, Indie, Electronic, World music
Pop, Hip Hop, Funk, Avant-Garde, and more!

There will be one extended group of guests from all aspects of the global music scene, involved in an array of musical disciplines and styles.

The festival will feature over 35 performances, alongside jam sessions, DJ sets, parties, sound and art installations, an international conference, and more.

All this will be packed into one colorful week, with approximately 50 guests from across the world.
Our guests will experience an intense and marvelous journey through Israeli culture, nature, remarkable people, amazing cuisine and most importantly:
the Israeli music scene, with its many colors and styles!
