One of the most unique festivals I have ever photographed has to be Magic Break festival in Turkey, chosen as the number one best festival in the country. Since 2015 they have trusted me to be their official festival photographer. And during the last editions to be in charge of the team of Magic Break photographer. There are a number of reasons why this festival is unique in my eyes.
1. Magic Break Festival is an hotel festival
The festival takes place at three large all-inclusive resorts on the coast of Antalya. This means that guests have the luxury to spend the night in a hotel.
2. The festival is an all-inclusive festival
Guests can get unlimited food and drinks. The advantage of this is that you only need to carry your hotel roomkey with you on the festival grounds. This ensures that the guests have a carefree festival experience. There is no stress about who bought the last round of drink. Money does not play a role in your life for a few days.
3. All music styles are represented at Magic Break festival
All kind of electronic music styles are present. There is always an artist to find that fits your music taste. Start your day with some EDM and house music at the Happy Hour stage and rave at night on some techno!
4. The festival goes on until deep into the night.
There are only a handful of festivals that I have visited in which you can party long after the sun has set. Magic Break is one of them. The impressive Dome stage where techno DJs from all over the world come to perform will make sure of that.
The fact that it is a 3 day event that goes on until late is a challenge for an event photographer. That is why I manage a team that consisting of me and 2 extra photographers. With these team each edition has been a great success. In this post I am sharing some of my favorite photos of this great festival.
