InDNegev – People have the power to transform a place, and a place has the power to transform people. In this time and place we become, not other than ourselves, but reveal that part of ourselves imagination sets free… InDNegev takes alternative music out of the back alleys and crowded underground venues of the city, to play before an audience of thousands, and marks the end of summer with the biggest and best party ever; a creative oasis, InDNegev is an image of alternative existence, a reflection of who we are, and who we might choose to be.
