from: Catching Catharis at Electric Forest by Bethany Weems, Joylyn Phoenix & Kayla Bultema
The Feminine Trio took the chance to meet up with Robbie Kowal, the founder of the mind-blowing Silent Disco concept and co-founder of HUSHconcerts and San Francisco DJ Motion Potion. The Silent Disco is a place where participants don headphones to listen to one or multiple DJs. Participants can toggle between the DJs who are performing, control their own volume or remove their headphones if they would like to have an intimate conversation with fellow attendees.
“People come here and pour all of their souls into this experience,” Kowal shared. “They’re expecting to have a transcendent experience or at least a cathartic one, right? They’re chasing transcendence and catching catharsis and that’s what we have to deliver to them or try our damndest. We, as musicians, have to realize that our duty is to them, to the people who show up and also to ourselves to give our very best performance of all time. [DJs] have to force yourself into the right mindset to be completely 100-percent generous and loving and giving to your audience.”
