SILENT DISCO - A silent disco or silent rave is an event where people dance to music listened to on wireless headphones. Rather than using a speaker system, music is broadcast via a radio transmitter with the signal being picked up by wireless headphone receivers worn by the participants.
Odds are, you’ve probably seen, heard of or partied at one. The silent disco (or headphone party) is one of those novelty parties that first appeared about 10 years ago and has become a bit of a hit. Almost every major music festival in the world seems to now have a stage or tent completely dedicated to just silent partying.
Even so, there are many people who have still yet
to experience this bizarre, wonderful thing. For many promoters, eliminating the noise of a party makes it way easier to get permits and go late – which might be a game changer for some.
Silent Disco's can be held at festivals, clubs, bars, school gyms, cruise ships, fashion shows, and even in an elevator. However, there are some key ingredients that will increase a silent disco’s probability of success. Let’s start with the big ticket items:
Venue is likely one of the first things on your to-do list, and rightfully so. In the world of silent disco, the party will live or die based on room size. Giving people room to breath in a crowd of strangers is oddly enough the complete opposite of what you want to give your patrons.
Someone always has to be the first to the party, but when you walk into room with a few people dancing who look like giggling strangers, it won’t exactly instill confidence to newcomers to join in the fun. This can result in a lot of walkaways. Make the most realistic guess of how many people you’ll have at peak attendance, then pick a room that snugly fits that number, but not much more. Even consider going smaller. People need complete immersion to cut loose in a room that’s so quiet you can hear a phone vibrate.
MULTI CHANNEL HEADPHONES
Most headphones on the market have either 2 or often 3 channels that the will glow with a different color and the audience can switch between at the flick of a button. When it comes to booking acts for your event, you should decide how many channels will have live performers on and schedule accordingly.
You can easily get away with a single DJ rocking the party all night as well!
“The best silent disco experience for guests is one where the main musical entertainment is all through the headphones. If competing music is playing in the same space through the loudspeakers, the weirdness of the silence dissipates and guests may even lose the incentive to participate.
Providing varying genres on the different headphone channels is highly recommended for a more dynamic — and diverse — environment, offering guests a choice of the music they dance to with a tap of a button.”
If a set of headphones get broken or go missing, you’re often stuck paying that cost back to the company. To avoid loss and increase accountability, a single point of entry and a single point of exit is a must. Some venues and spaces will be ideal for this, but in others you’ll have to get creative if there’s not a normal entrance or exit. Keep in mind fire code safety concerns and don’t put a chain on the emergency exits!
If the dance floor already has a single entrance, just set up “in” and “out” cues with some tables and rope sanctions – you’re done! If it’s more complex, you’ll probably need to acquire some crowd barriers to create your perimeter and single in/out funnel.
