This year, Urban Fetes will present A3C’s first silent party, but don't be fooled the atmosphere is not as quiet as you think. This style party is classified to be a silent disco where party-goers enjoy an outer body experience while listening to their favorite sounds streaming through wireless headphones straight from the DJ booth.
Silent parties have been around for decades, but Urban Fetes founder Shannon Waldron has brought back the rave-like shindig with a modern twist. This is the ultimate go-to event for millennials to attend. "Our Silent Party is simply a unique way of experiencing live music, whether it be a DJ or Live Artist," says Waldron. The lifestyle brand has gained so much buzz that Urban Fetes has decided to take their high-energy event on a multi-city tour by popular demand. Stay tuned my friends they might be coming to a city near you!
The silent party debut at A3C will feature well-known DJs such as DJ Caleeb, DJ Mike Nasty and more. And of course the night wouldn't be complete without the presence of radio personality Headkrack from the Rickey Smiley Morning Show and Brittany Lewis from Global Grind to keep the event lively throughout the evening. Waldron told us that this year’s attendees should definitely expect the unexpected. This event will change the scene at this year's festival.
