24 July 2014

What a beautiful start to kick off the 40th annual National Arts Festival!  Amazing weather to begin with before the cold weather creeps in which we relate more with at festival time.

It has to be one of the biggest, most well-attended National Arts Festivals, with a jam-packed programme, to date.

The Magnetic Storm team buzzing around all over Grahamstown setting up various venues for amazing productions taking place throughout!

Magnetic Storm has been proudly associated with the National Arts Festival for many years now.  As the preferred service provider of the festival organisers, our team sets up house & home in Grahamstown for the duration of the festival so as to provide ‘in-house’ technical support to venues hosting productions and to our festival organisers.  For prepping, set-up and managing all technical requirements.

Having built a strong, trusting bond with the festival organisers over the years, Magnetic Storm feel the National Arts Festival to be a part of who we are and what we stand for in the festival industry.

A sense of nostalgia always experienced by all when walking the streets of Grahamstown or attending one of many talented productions showcased during festival time!

Magnetic Storm… Doing it Right! at the National Arts Festival!

At Magnetic Storm, we do tech in a big way, every day. We love what it allows us to do, how people can connect, communicate and collaborate. But in today’s world, we’re always on, always plugged in, hiding behind a black mirror. But for an authentic relationship to happen, we need to connect in person. So are we becoming slaves to technology? Is it making us less happy, less 'us'?
