Boombamela is a former Shanti/ New Age and currently a Mainstream festival held annually on Chol HaMoed Pesach (Intermediate Days of Passover) in Israel since 1999, described by its organisers as "a place for meeting, experiencing, crossing borders and transcending social limitations through music, creation, and connection with nature."The festival is located on the sandy beach of Hof Nitzanim, between Ashdod and Ashkelon, about as far from anything as anything can be in crowded Israel.More and more foreigners have taken note of the festival, and a visitor will often hear tongues being spoken beside Hebrew.The inspiration for the festival is the Hindu festival of Kumbh Mela India.Photos by Rafael Ben-Ari/Chameleons Eye
