The Gathering will be held this year in a new and spectacular location - at the Desert Ashram in Shitim, Arava area. This time, we are going to experience the desert on a completely different level.
* Please note that the number of participants in the event is limited!
The campground is located inside the Ashram and camping is free of charge.
In addition, the place offers different sized bedouin tents with mats and mattresses that can be rented out. There is a big tent where you can bunk with all of the other tuckered out Deadheads, or spaces for 5 or 10 people. If you don’t have a mattress, you can also rent one out as well.
** Members of the association will be given the first priority to reserve family tents until March 1. After that, any other vacant family tents will be made available to all attendees.
Reservations for the big common tents will be open to everyone from the get-go.
