Rave type events in South Africa are few and far between. So, when Armin van Buuren - DJ Magazine’s top-rated DJ - brings a large budget one-night-only world tour event to our country, it’s sure to be a spectacle. Having kicked off in November 2013 in Amsterdam, Armin Only: Intense – his all-night electronic dance event - will continue its journey to over 20 destinations to all corners of the world, from America to Australia, to Africa to Asia.
Electrosonic SA is a happy place to work, and that’s why we enjoy a ridiculously low staff turnover. Working here comes with a few perks: modern, newly renovated offices; unlimited cappuccinos from the state-of-the-art coffee machine; a leisure area with pool table and bar for regular braais and socials; a vending machine filled with naughty goodies.
If you drive into Durban on the N3 you can’t miss the Durban Christian Center (DCC) Jesus Dome: the largest free standing aluminium dome structure in Africa. Step inside the dome and the vastness of the structure will leave you breathless. A massive space needs good lighting, audio, and video: integral aspects for creating the right affect in large houses of worship. Like other large houses of worship, the DCC relies heavily on lighting, audio, and video to add value to their message, and create a dynamic atmosphere.
