South Street Seaport Extends Silent Skating through February 21

Saturdays in February Will See Sound Off DJs Spin Silent Discos on Ice for Headphone-Wearing Skaters; Headphones are Free With Skate Rental

New York, NYJanuary 29, 2015

Sound Off™ today announced that Manhattan’s South Street Seaport has extended Silent Skating through February 21, when the ice rink closes for the season. Silent Skating features live sets from Sound Off DJs, who spin for skaters wearing wireless, noise-canceling LED headphones. Sound Off, a global leader in producing events with wireless headphones, has produced Silent Skating since December 2014 as a follow-on to summer’s successful #SilentSeaport silent discos.

“There are lots of skate rinks in the city and they all feature skating schools or music,” said Tom Kovacic, Marketing Manager for South Street Seaport. “We wanted to come up with something different and cool. We had success teaming up with Sound Off for our #SilentSeaport silent discos last summer, so the question was: Would people want to come skate around to their own sound? Turns out they do.”

Skaters can glide across the ice to their choice of music, listening to the live set spun by the DJ or opting for one of the headphones’ two other channels, which broadcast curated music streams. The Saturday events run from 5-8 p.m. at the Seaport Ice Rink on Fulton Street. Headphones are free with skate rental; attendees can RSVP in advance with Sound Off to reserve their pair.

“It’s been delightful to work the Seaport and put on an eye-catching event that drew more curiosity and participation with each week,” said Castel Valere-Couturier, CEO and founder of Sound Off. “We look forward to working with them in 2015 to offer immersive events for the property and their guests.”
