Bet Shemesh Festival is back on the table!

The show must go on!

Good news. The mayor of Bet Shemesh, Moshe Abutbol, just announced that the Bet Shemesh Festival will happen this year, on Monday Occtober 13, the fourth day of Chol Hamoed, at the "Ampi" in Bet Shemesh.

Singers in this years festival will include Udi Davidi, Yosef Chaim Shwekey, Lenny Solomon, and others..

The festival is being produced under the auspices of the office of the City Spokesman, Mati Rozenzweig,and is the result of a number of departments working together to allow the festival to continue...

Whatever it was, or all the different efforts by different people together, worked!



it is worth adding the following from Shemeshnet:

Abubtol is upset at MK Lipman, and his open letter published last week about the cancelation of the festival. Mayor Abutbol said that he does not have a good working relationship with Lipman, who takes every opportunity to smear the city leadership. Abutbol said "I am not his employee". When he begins to speak to the point and apologizes for his part in certain incidents that inflamed the city, there will be what to discuss..

Regarding the festival, Abutbol said the decision is in the hands of people responsible. Each department makes its decisions, and he backs them up. The decision regarding the festival was in the hands of Deputy Mayor Meir Balayish and Itzik Kazino.

Mati Rozensweig, the city spokesperson, is running the show this year. The festival is on but in a minimal format. Udi Davidi, Lenny Solomon and Yosef Chaim Shwekey are scheduled to play, and as of now that is it. There is no budget for the festival, and basically he is going to try to get some more local performers to join the program (for free?) like Ari Goldwag. Eli Friedman, and the Gat Brothers.

Interesting that the spokesmans office is now involved in putting on events, rather than the departments responsible for these things... but it is what it is..
