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
Over the past 12 years, the Showcase Festival has reaped countless achievements:
Israeli artists and groups now perform on stages all over the world: major festivals in the US, Spain, England, Taiwan, Russia, China and India; European tours stretch across Germany, France, Italy, Austria, Turkey and many other countries; These once local artists are now arousing international curiosity and are discussed in global media outlets such as magazines, radio shows, and internet channels; Israeli music is also featured on a great deal of TV and streaming channels such as Netflix, Mezzo and others.
International collaborations are constantly produced, whilst worldwide audiences are exposed to the expanding scene of Israeli music.
The Showcase Festival demonstrates a collaborative effort between the “Yellow Submarine – The Place for Music in Jerusalem” and the Cultural Diplomacy Division of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The project is also supported by the Ministry of Culture and Sport, and the Municipality of Jerusalem
