Magnetic Fields: More Than A Music Festival
21 November 2013
The dawn of our first festival is fast approaching and while we are thrilled, nervous and insanely excited all at once, we are also concerned that we haven’t filled you in properly about what you need to prepare yourself for and what you should expect.
Here's 10 things you should know about Magnetic Fields Festival:
Magnetic Fields is a 3 day celebration marking the historical meeting of the mysterious Bedouins with the royal Kings and Queens from Rajasthan. Their union many moons ago resulted in a sensational celebration and magical carnival that has over the years wandered from our memories - until now. December 2013 is an auspicious anniversary, as we speak, the magnetic fields are currently switching in the earths atmosphere, change is in the air and the Kings and Queens are making their palace ready to welcome the new Bedouins and celebrate the long lost anniversary of their ancestors union with a spectacular 3 days of parties, costumes, secrets and treasure.
Some festival essentials will be in there along with some non-essentials that will welcome you to Magnetic Fields, a gift from us with some crucial tools, information and keep sakes that we hope you treasure…

You’ll need this to work out where the secret parties are, decipher the enigmas that we have built into the festival, how to find the treasure and of course important information about who’s playing where and when.
