For one hour on September 26, Social Media Week participants in Chicago and Berlin will party together, using social media and Internet technologies in a totally unique way.
The Silent House Party, presented by Tostitos®, will showcase a fascinating tie between two prominent Social Media Week host cities: Chicago, the birthplace of House Music, and Berlin, which now has one of the hottest House Music scenes.
To kick off the celebration, Kenny Jammin’ Jason from the Hot Mix 5, one of the originators of house music, will blend some of the best house music Chicago and Berlin have to offer.
The Silent House Party takes place in Chicago’s Pioneer Court on Michigan Avenue, next to the Tribune Tower, where attendees will gather and listen to music and dance. But instead of using a traditional sound system, everyone will receive wireless headphones, powered by Silent Events. Simultaneously, Berlin guests will party in a nightclub space.
Video screens in Pioneer Court will broadcast Berlin’s party and show a cascade of real-time tweets. By using two-channel headphones, Chicago guests will have the option of listening to music being DJ’d live in Chicago or in Berlin and can enjoy Tostitos® tortilla chips and dips during the hour – the perfect snack for any party.
