Silent Disco adelaine

The most unusual dance party you’ve ever been to.

7 years ago, two friends organized a secret party at the campsite of the huge Dutch festival Parade.  Even though DJs were spinning sets and everyone was dancing, the people sleeping in their tents nearby never heard a sound – all the music was broadcast on wireless headphones.

These noiseless dance parties became an instant sensation and have been electrifying crowds from Ireland to Australia, Romania to Indonesia.  With the most eclectic mix of dance music you’ve ever heard, including house, punk, disco, salsa, swing, electro, and Dixieland, Silent Disco keeps everyone moving.  And if you only want to watch, it’s guaranteed you’ve never seen anything like this before.

Co-presented by TIME OUT NY.
