Wave Wall Wax: DJ Solkat

5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free and open to the public! Join us on Navy Pier’s South Dock at the Wave Wall Performance Platform for a live DJ set, part of Navy Pier’s free live DJ series, Wave Wall Wax. This year, over 50% of the DJs are women. 

About the DJ

Born and raised on the Southside of Chicago, Nakia Allen pka DJ SolKat grew up listening to different genres of music like R&B, Funk, Hip Hop and House. At family parties, her aunt (who went by the name Miss Beasley) would be the DJ. Nakia became curious about the two turntables and the microphone. She would stand there, watching how her aunt would select the records, and found it fascinating how each song created a reaction from the crowd. After watching her aunt, as well as one of Hip Hops most famous lady turntablist DJ Spinderella on television, Nakia was inspired to DJ.
