How will I hear people if I want to talk? hehe :-) so many people have this silly question... why can't they just think?
Disco isn’t dead. It just went quiet... walk into a Silent Disco event and see for yourself: a couple hundred people, two DJs spinning, and a dance floor filled with gyrating dancers – in total silence.
Wheather you holding a festival, house party or a special event, the silent disco is becoming very popular. A silent disco has much in common with a regular party, with one noticeable difference…there’s no music!
Since the Walkman hit the streets we have all seen individual private dance parties at bus stops or in the grocery store, but the silent disco is taking that experience to another level. Record spinning, Pop-locking, head bobbing and hip shaking are everything you expect to see at a dance party, but the biggest thing you hear appears to be missing, but it isn't really missing at all.
So it's not exactly "silent," but if you want to know what people are dancing to you have to either rely on some relayed performances or rent the wireless headphones that will allow you to switch between the DJ sources and control the volume.
The Silent Disco ends up being like three parties in one. You can listen to different kinds of music or just take the headphones off and talk. It's totally different because it's not as loud. You can actually speak to someone. Take your headphones off and communicate with another person.
Nothing can prepare you for how weird and just how much fun the Silent Disco is!
The idea has been around since the mid 90's. In recent years thought it's been popularized through the rock festival circuit and more recently through club events which has seen it turn from conceptual art into a full scale clubbing phenomenon.
A simple concept with a spectacular affect. Take a room full of clubbers, arm them all with a set of wireless headphones, have three separate DJ's broadcast to them live via three FM channels and watch the utterly surreal spectacle that unfolds.
A mass of humanity, throwing moves, pulling shapes and singing along to what appears to everyone else to be... complete silence. Welcome to the hugely popular phenomenon that is, 'Silent Discotheque'.
Bored with one song? Then simply switch channels on your wireless headphones and you can listen to something else. The Dj’s play simultaneously, offering a hilarious fusion of uncoordinated dancing and even less cohesive singing.
Occasionally you might want to stop listen to the music, take your head phones off and listen to what everyone else is singing. It really is a unique experience.
Popularity of the Silent Disco has been soaring. If you get the chance, stop by the Silent Disco and take a look, I promise you will not resist to get a pair of headphones and start dancing like crazy.
