Park Hayarkon - Park Hayarkon, Tel Aviv, 150 NIS
After a highly successful prior visit and an event that left everyone craving for more, answering our crowd’s request, and even more exciting, the artist request, we are bringing you back real strong Black Coffee for an outdoors day event – welcoming spring with Tripping Black Coffee picnic!
And where if not…
In the middle of the lifeline of the amazing bustling city of Tel-Aviv, lies secretly an amazing magical garden, an oasis in an urban desert, green and colourful, on the shores of a lake – The Rock Garden, The Zoological Garden, The Sculptures Garden – 3 names for the same garden, all depending on the perspective. The Rocks were brought over from all over Israel, among them yellow sand rocks brought from the skirts of Mount Hermon and aged over 70 million years!
“Nothing is impossible… It all begins with a dream.” – Black Coffee
5 things you didn’t know about Black Coffee:
* he plays with one hand – He was injured in an accident when he was 14 and his left hand is paralyzed.
*In 2010 he got in the Guinness Book of World Records when he DJed 60 (!!!) hours non-stop.
*He studied Jazz music.
*His real name is Nkosinathi Innocent Maphumulo.
*He’s considered the most prominent music producer in Africa.
Every modern dance music you dance to nowadays originates in Africa. Black Coffee brought House music back to Africa, and the outcome took over the world. We are proud to host a remarkable musician, DJ and human being. A man that came out of the remote rural areas of South Africa, and clinging to his musical dream, with one hand and a huge heart, slowly but surely took over almost every possible stage world-wide. Starting in South Africa where he is a household name, and slowly but relentlessly in the whole world, where in a span of 3 years he performs on stages in every respected venue and chosen in 2015 as the breakthrough DJ of the year. From there the path was clear to performances at Coachella Festival and Ultra Music Festival, and to being asked to remix Alicia Keys.
With his own unique mixing style, one handed, with loads of soul and warmth and irresistible caressing grooves laid over sweeping beats Black Coffee makes people’s hearts dance and they fall in love, be it at Panorama Bar in Berlin, Circoloco at DC10 in Ibiza, ADE in Amsterdam, Boiler Room and Mixmag Lab or in Soweto in South Africa.
