There will be three wireless channels which you can choice from with different music on each channel. One channel will be kid friendly, without  profanity. Other channels will play electronic music, Japanese and Japanese influenced music in honor of the Cherry Blossoms, and more popular music and popular music remixes. 

This event is pay-what-you-can and is a fundraiser to help double the number of headphones that Silence of the Jam has. Donations are much appreciated so please give as you are able. There is a free ticket option at the bottom of the RSVP page. Advance RSVP is required online. 

Dancing is welcome outside the memorials and on the grassy areas. Please be mindful and do not dance inside of the memorials, out of respect and honor for what they represent and memorialize, and to avoid any conflict with law enforcement. If you wish to enter a memorial or monument, you are invited to, just please refrain from dancing, as it could result in arrest.
