Where Magnets attract certain metals, this ‘Magneet (Magnet) Festival’ seems to attract a wide variety of people. ‘Magneet Festival’ is participation and co-creation in the best sense of the word. You can pitch your creative ideas for the festival and if this is achievable, realistic and popular, the festival co-creates and facilitates. This makes it the first crowd-sourced festival of its kind in Europe.
For one month the sand valley at Zeeburger Island are the home for music, theatre, experimental constructions, fine arts, children’s activities and more. On the 14th of September ‘Magneet Electric’ will enter the sand valley. One day of only electronic music at the four main stages. With four beautiful Amsterdam based organizations from Cartel and Prisma to Chasing the Hihat and ourselves (Deep House Amsterdam), this day will be a special one. The line ups will be announced later this month.
With ‘No spectators only participators’ being the ‘Magneet Philosophy’ and ‘Leave no Trace’ as their motto, it is all about working together and durability. During the build up the participators are expected to keep the durability in mind so the location will return in it’s original state or even cleaner.
