Selection Process


TUNE IN TEL AVIV has created a very simple and FREE process for ALL active musicians to submit to be considered for our flagship industry event. Our aim is to place the right talent in front of the right talent buyers/industry/media. We consult with our international guests prior to selecting our lineup to ensure we are giving them what they are most likely to invest in. We do not place artists who are clearly not active domestically, or are not deemed 'export ready'.



TUNE IN TE AVIV takes place in dozens of locations throughout the cities of Tel Aviv and Jaffa. Our patented format showcases not only the best acts, but also the most unique music venues, hotels, restaurants, and music-related spots. In past years, we have partnered with dozens of incredible music venues/clubs in order to produce both our daytime conference and night showcases, 'after-parties' and excursions.
