Lake Merritt Silent Disco Walk

September 6, 5:30pm - 7:00pm PDT. Hosted at Lake Chalet


About this FieldTrip

Let’s walk around Lake Merritt to some upbeat downtempo music together! Our DJ mix will include afro house, deep house and world beats suitable for putting some serious bounce in your stride.

Wear comfortable shoes and carry your own water. Keep an eye on the weather. Sometimes the wind picks up or the fog rolls in late afternoons. If you need to wear a hat, make sure headphones will fit over it.

I will provide RF headphones (not Bluetooth) that will receive sound from a special transmitter I will carry. The sound only works within a certain radius, so we will have to stay together. I will show everyone how to adjust them for sound and fit. Then we will start walking by about 5:45. PLEASE BE ON TIME!!! Our walking-dancing pace will be determined by the pedestrian traffic on the walkways.

Meet on the grassy area outside the Lake Chalet, an easy walk from downtown Oakland or the BART station.

Disclaimer: Please be mindful of your personal safety and manners with others while on the hike/walk. The headphones decrease your ability to hear regular noises on the street and in nature. The headphones are fitted with a volume switch so you can adjust the sound to an appropriate level for your safety and enjoyment.
