Silent Discos

Summer for the City 2023 has come to an end!
Thank you for joining us at the Ultimate New York Festival

Strut your stuff under the stars as our popular weekly Silent Disco series returns to NYC’s largest outdoor dance floor with a 10-foot disco ball! Lincoln Center is the place to be this summer as we turn the heat up and the volume way down. Dance to your favorite beats, enjoying al fresco fun with thousands of new friends at late evening DJ sets transmitted through neon headphones. With over 25 Silent Disco dance parties to choose from—including family-friendly dates, a week of K-pop, a star-studded set co-curated with the NY Dance and Performance Bessie Awards, a celebration of the 50th anniversary of hip hop, a world music dance party with globalFEST, and more—the only question is which nights will you dance… or will you just enjoy them all!?
