5.25.17 – Big Boi and The White Panda headline biggest-ever US silent disco at BottleRock

Big Boi and The White Panda headline biggest-ever US silent disco at BottleRock on May 27
HUSHconcerts and Silent Storm Soundsystem collaborate to make history and break the American silent disco record with a 5000 HUSHphone blowout sponsored by Libratone.

Break out the bubbly at BottleRock this Saturday (RSVP) and celebrate a truly momentous history-making collaboration. HUSHconcerts, the trailblazing Bay Area company who made the world its venue, is thrilled to lead the production of America’s largest silent disco event on Saturday, May 27 at BottleRock Napa Valley. Shattering the previous American record of 3500 headphones, Saturday’s 5000 person blowout is only possible through the generous support of the festival’s silent disco’s sponsor, Libratone, and another of the nation’s leading silent disco vendors, Silent Storm Soundsystem. But even with 5000 headphones and over 100 staff, it wouldn’t be a proper party without the music of Outkast’s multidimensional musical legend BIG BOI and Chicago mashup kings THE WHITE PANDA. The two musical heroes face off in an epic two-channel battle for the hearts, minds, and ears of the BottleRock audience.

“The only thing I’m more proud of than seeing Big Boi and TWP on 5000 HUSHphones is how many forces have joined to make it happen,” exclaims HUSHconcerts founder and CCO Robbie Kowal, “BottleRock created this opportunity and we are thrilled that Libratone and Silent Storm jumped in to help us make it happen.”

BottleRock Napa Valley had already announced the Libratone Silent Disco stage, which will feature more than 30 Bay Area artists over 3 nights on 600 HUSHconcerts headphones. Then when the opportunity arose to break the record, the HUSHconcerts team began pulling strings, calling in favors, and building a team to meet the challenge. One of the first calls was to Bay Area-based Silent Storm founder George Gayl.

“We were thrilled to be a part of this historic event at a festival of this magnitude,” said Gayl “And thrilled to demonstrate how competitors can collaborate to make truly wonderful results.”

BottleRock Napa Valley offers an exciting and diverse lineup of musical artists and performers, presenting more than 80 bands on four music stages, including Foo Fighters, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and Maroon 5. “We are always looking for unique and fun ways to enhance the BottleRock experience,” adds Jason Scoggins of BottleRock Presents. “Having Libratone, HUSHconcerts and Silent Storm together with Big Boi and The White Panda lead 5000 guests at this special silent disco creates another ‘only at BottleRock” moment.”
