An international team of Israelis, Palestinians, Syrians, Iraqis and, of course, Germans is launching the Berlin Hummus Festival 2022. And the Hummus Festival is an affair of the heart for all of them: a celebration of peace and goodness that brings people together. Good food and nice music are in the foreground.
What can you expect at the Berlin Hummus Festival 2022?
Be it Syrian, Lebanese or Egyptian, it’s safe to say that hummus is an Arabic dish. It is a popular eaten in most Middle Eastern countries and has made its way into the heart of Western societies in recent years. You can find hummus on supermarket shelves these days, at food events, and as an important part of the vegan lifestyle.
The organizers of the Berlin Hummus Festival don’t care where they come from: they just come together to celebrate their mutual love for this dish. For the seventh time, they meet on a Sunday afternoon to nourish their souls and their bodies, and to emphasize the sweet pleasures that bind us all together as human beings. This goes much deeper than any identity forced upon us from birth.
Various hummus lovers from different countries will offer you their very own interpretation of the dish, while musicians and DJs combine Middle Eastern music with the local electronic scene in a wonderful open-air party.
This year there are 12 Hummusapiens offering their interpretations of the dish. They come from Lebanon, Syria, Israel, Palestine, Jordan, Iraq and even Germany.
They will all serve hummus and other chickpea dishes made with love.
