The Makhtesh Naganim is a one-day music event, held annually in the Ramon Crater (“Makhtesh”) at the Ramon Colors National Park.
It features extraordinary performances, including experimental music. The performances of avant-garde music combine classical acoustic instruments with electronic instruments, art-performances and workshops.
Leading, top echelon musicians and performance artists of the Israeli experimental improvisation scene, participate together with local Mitzpe Ramon’s artists. From dawn to dusk, they present their art, inspired by nature’s wild landscapes. Since 2017, the festival is held each November. Entry to all Festival performances is free.
