The Magnets (The Magnets and Assembly)

By | Published on Friday 12 August 2011

This live sensation brings you what must surely be of the most electrifying performances of the Festival: you cannot help but become mesmerised by the stunning depth of talent this six-piece ‘jukebox’ has to offer. Flawless a cappella arrangements revise both timeless classics and modern-day chart hits in order to produce a sound like no other. Stadium anthems play to a cabaret venue, striking a note of exquisite intimacy. Contemporary meets old school as beat-boxing perfection fuses with harmonious voices, whilst smooth moves and comic interaction really defines this show as the perfect package. A truly unmissable act; you cannot take your eyes off these gifted maestros.

Assembly George Square, 5 – 29 Aug, 6.10pm (7.10pm), £10.00 – £15.00, ffp211.
