Joe Cocker Joe Cocker has been recruited to headline a new summer festival in Israel.

The three-day Gilboa Coexistence Festival, taking place August 26-28, will promote peace between the Jews and Arabs living in the Gilboa section of the Middle Eastern country.

2BVibes, the company staging the festival, also organized last year's Jerusalem Rocks fest, which featured Black Eyed Peas and Arrested Development.

Thankfully, they'll have access to the handy translation in the video.
