Magnetic Storm to put on Port Elizabeth’s biggest laser show at People’s Port Festival

Magnetic Storm has brought 10 high-powered lasers to Port Elizabeth to put on the biggest laser show the city has ever seen as part of the People’s Port Festival hosted by the Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA).

Following a formal tender process, for the second consecutive year, Magnetic Storm has been appointed to bring the People’s Port Festival to life for TNPA.

Happening this weekend, the 10-minute laser show will be using a myriad of surfaces throughout the port and will include logos and images in celebration of Nelson Mandela’s centenary.

Hired from Johannesburg-based LaserX, Magnetic Storm is using water, various vessels and the port structures to put on what is set to be the biggest laser show ever seen in Port Elizabeth.

“Over the years our city has enjoyed many great firework displays and we wanted to bring an experience that is unique!” remarks Magnetic Storm CEO, Glenn van Eck.

“Using technology in a creative way to form a memorable experience for event attendees is what we’re all about, and it’s a great way to draw the crowds’ eye to the different elements of the port. And of course, it adds a new dimension to the People’s Port Festival to make it bigger and better than 2017.”

Catch the laser show at 8:15pm on December 1st, just before Brucie and Heavy, for more information visit the People’s Port Festival Facebook Page.
