Get ready for a summer of concerts at Park Anabe but it’s going to cost you. Park Anabe will begin having performances that will be for paying attendees exclusively. Shlomo Artzi, Omer Adam and Moshe Peretz will open up the concert season in July. The Iriyah decided last year to turn Park Anabe into a "closed" venue for ticket selling concerts and events, similar to Sultan’s Pool in Jerusalem, Live Park in Rishon Lezion and the Caesarea Amphitheater.
The Iriyah along with the Department of Culture and Events and Minhelet Ofek, did a “trial run” in September with a performance of the Knesiyat Hasekhel Band. The event was part of the national project "cultural days", an initiative of the national lottery in conjunction with the Ministry of Culture and Sport and forum of cultural institutions. It was very successful, with more than 6,000 attendees.
Since then, the Iriyah has undertaken development work and additional upgrades top prepare the park for more concerts. The point is to sell tickets at an attractive price while also covering the costs of the show and earn income to support the financial investment. This is different from the “free” shows at the amphi on Emek Hachula. The details of events and concerts are not available at this time. More details will be forthcoming with dates, ticket prices and parking arrangements.
