Silent! Disco: A series of nine dance parties scheduled throughout the festival weekend. Imagine a crowd of hundreds of people, everyone dancing, but no music can be heard. Upon entry, what at first appeared to be a crowd dancing wildly to silence just became a full sensory audio experience.
Silent! Disco DJ’s:
Brendan Chris Brooks Adam Rush Napspace Mikie Love J Fell Matt Pierce DJ Charisse Billy Mode Balagan Neal Conway
SoundNest: Dancing Fire “SoundNest” returns wilder and larger as a lavish interactive outdoor installation centered upon the Red Stage. Promoting an inclusive sense of community, courage and confidence, it is a three-day celebration of life, love and diversity!
Guests are encouraged to follow the joyful sounds into a vibrant environment that blurs the lines between audience and performers. Inside, Artscape visitors can play upon a feast of handmade musical instruments led by a series of experimental sound and performance artists.
“SoundNest” is the creation of Dialog+, a social practice comprised of the artists Alzaruba, Liz Swanson and Ryan Smith, in collaboration with Justin Miller.
