After four years at Steele Indian School Park in downtown Phoenix, the Desert Gathering Jewish Music Fest is moving to the Ina Levine Jewish Community Campus in Scottsdale.

Organizers said moving from Steele Indian School Park to the Ina Levine campus provides the music festival with a more contained setting.

“The more intimate setting promotes greater interaction among attendees, while still allowing for plenty of room to sit down with friends and family on blankets or get up and dance to the music,” said Todd Herzog, the music fest’s founder and a featured performer. “It also reinforces and deepens our partnership with the Jewish Federation of Greater Phoenix and the Valley of the Sun Jewish Community Center.”

The relocation will also allow for more parking spots as well as a dedicated on-site kosher kitchen.

The festival’s mission is to use the spiritual power of music to create a stronger sense of Jewish identity, connection to community and pride in a shared culture and heritage.

Single tickets for those ages 6 and over cost $5, while a pack of five tickets goes for $20. The festival is open to all ages and denominations.
