First of all, let’s clarify the mystery once and for all – what is a silent disco and how does it work? It’s a rather new concept and it may sound strange, but actually, it’s very simple – and incredibly cool! It is simply a disco event, where people put on a pair of special noise-cancelling headphones and choose their own favourite songs to jam to. You may pick an upbeat house song, while your friend prefers to put on a slower tune. The result is a whole lot of singing as if no one is listening, dancing as if no one is watching, and very different energies and vibes colliding and combining. For an outsider, it may look like a freak show: the dance floor is filled with uncoordinated people with silent disco headphones and there is no music being played aloud. But for the lucky insiders, it is the most liberating, cathartic and downright mindblowing experience. Silent disco events have another huge advantage – they can continue past noise curfews. Due to the many unparalleled visual, sound, and emotional effects, these events are increasingly popular throughout the world and luckily, there are quite a few to be found in the UK.
