A red carpet party, DJ from New York, signature cocktails, surprise displays and interactive exhibits all make for the most exciting weekend on 30A with the Fifth Annual Digital Graffiti Festival scheduled for June 8-9th at Alys Beach.
“We have traffic on the Digital Graffiti website from all over the world – nearly 100 countries! It is amazing how Digital Graffiti has put Alys Beach, 30A, Florida, and the US on the map for digital art,” said Kelli Siler of Alys Beach.
Music has always been an integral part of Digital Graffiti, particularly when the party on Saturday night is in full swing at the Caliza Pool. This year will be no different with guest DJ Chachi flying in from New York to spin tunes from a very special location at the pool on Saturday night. Check him out at djchachi.com
In addition to the juried works of art are several interactive exhibits including JD’s Funhouse from Panama City. A video image of yourself is projected, filtered and then you are portrayed as rock star, circus performer, or avatar option. This display will be placed in Central Park for all guests to enjoy.
GET THE DIGITAL GRAFFITI APP:
Guests are encouraged to download the 30A App prior to attending the festival.
“We’re working with 30A.com again this year to create the ultimate mobile companion for the Digital Graffiti festival,” said Siler. “The free mobile app will feature information about all exhibits, enabling attendees to learn a little about each artist and entry real-time, at their own pace. The mobile Digital Graffiti guide will also feature useful facts about event parking, ticketing and other festival-related info.
Siler said that the information will be available during the festival on June 8th and 9th, on both the 30A iPhone app and the 30A Android app. Both mobile apps are available for free download now at 30A.com.
