Woodstock set to rock with new studios for musos and photographers

Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters) once said that many youngsters today think that to become famous you need to stand in a line with hundreds of other hopefuls and sing in front of a TV audience, only to be told by a judge that you’re not good enough. He said that youngsters should just buy second hand instruments, have lots of fun while playing awfully, get better, and it could lead to fame, like it did for him and his bandmates in Nirvana.

Do you have a garage band or a choir? Or are you keen to expand on your passion for photography by doing studio work? Then you probably know how difficult it is to get access to decent recording and photographic studios as well as rehearsal rooms, as they can be expensive to rent or not located in a convenient area.

This is why Brinn Tomes and Gerald Grobler have converted an old warehouse in Woodstock into a creative hub with seven studios for hire, at what we have found to be very affordable rates.

They believe this will be useful for those who found the high costs a barrier to entry, and open up the field to those who have limited funds and fits in with Cape Town's status as World Design Capital 2014.
