Urban Boombox


A giant 80’s-style boombox allowing anyone to become a DJ for a few minutes or more. Passers-by plug in their own MP3 device and share their music. This 6-ft ghetto-blaster is installed in a public space, free for use by anyone at any time, inciting strangers to talk to each other, decide on the next track together and DANCE.

How does it work?

1. Plug in your MP3 device
2. Launch your music
3. Dance and make the crowd dance with you


Create a situation by making a sound system available, make passers-by responsible for its success.
