The Nova Music Festival Exhibition
October 7th | 06:29am  
The Moment Music Stood Still

April 21 | New York, NY
Now extended until June 22

The Nova Music Festival Exhibition is an in-depth remembrance of the brutal October 7th attack. Bringing the events of October 7th and the “Tribe of Nova” festival in southern Israel to New York City. The installation sets out to recreate an event dedicated to peace and love that was brutally cut short by Hamas’s attack on Israel from Gaza on that fateful day. This groundbreaking installation will be open to the public starting April 21st for a 4 week long presentation in Manhattan. Presented as a way to empower visitors to responsibly explore the events of October 7 and its aftermath, The Nova Exhibition will transform a 50,000 square foot venue, introducing New Yorkers to one of the largest historical installations ever presented.

The Nova Music Festival founders gathered once again to conceive a wide & in-depth remembrance, created and directed by Reut Feingold. The exhibition premiered in Tel Aviv for 10 weeks to thousands who witnessed and remembered the lives lost. 

Now the Nova founders and Feingold, joined by US partners, are bringing this large-scale remembrance installation to NYC. Together, they have created a sacred space echoing the weight of the victims’ and survivors’ memories, surrounded by remains salvaged from the festival grounds—scorched cars, bullet-riddled bathroom stalls, and personal belongings all left behind. 

Visitors will be invited to join a plea for the safe return of the 134 hostages who are still held in captivity by Hamas terrorists. Nova survivors of the brutal attack will be attending, to bear as witnesses to the tragedy they experienced that day. 

Beyond the brutality and evil that occurred on October 7, the exhibition will capture the enduring spirit of the Nova Tribe with the installation of a healing tent. This special structure is a lighthouse declaring “We will dance again.” 

Nova Founders: Omri Sassi, Yoni Feingold, Ofir Amir, Yagil Rimoni
US Partners: Scooter Braun, Joe Teplow, Josh Kadden and many more supporters; 
Creator Director & Writer: Reut Feingold.
