For the new event held at the Carnegie Library, Event Farm created disco balls embedded with tablets that lowered into the crowd during the live band's performance, allowing guests to use their badges to download a track from the group.
"The White House Correspondents weekend traditionally dominated by legacy media parties. Celebrities show up, go to parties, and go home. Everything we do is geared at being a little bit of a disrupter," said Event Farm C.E.O. Ryan Costello. "We're not just putting brands on the wall, we are experimenting with the technology."
