Magneet Festival: ‘No spectators, only participators’

Volkshotel

Magneet Festival (‘Magnet Festival’) is coming to town! A good party, nice food, lot’s of creative minds and genuine happy people. This festival is one of our personal favorites. Why? Go and see for yourself: 22-23-24 and 29-30-31 of August.

On an artificial sand valley at the Zeeburger Island (Zeeburgereiland) in the East of Amsterdam visitors can enjoy music, theatre, experimental constructions, fine arts, children’s activities and more. Everybody with a creative initiative is welcome to pitch their idea to the internet platform. If this idea is popular and possible, Magneet Festival co-creates and facilitates. This makes Magneet Festival the first crowdsourced festival of its kind in Europe.

‘No spectators, only participators’ has always been the “Magneet philosophy”. To create something special you need to work together, on which this co-creational festival is also based. With “Leave no Trace” as motto, it’s clear that durability plays an important part during the festival: participants are expected to keep sustainability in mind when building and breaking down whatever they have in mind. It’s a special place and we’re giving it back in its original state, if not cleaner.
