How Silent Disco Vibe is Changing Music Festivals

At music festivals, it’s always interesting to see the dynamics of a festival merge the different art forms within it. The results are astonishing and groundbreaking, and this merging of art forms is exactly what Silent Disco Vibe brings to the table. 

What are the characteristics of a Silent Disco atmosphere, and what makes it so special? What composes a Silent Disco is a medley of a few things: a silent party or quiet event space, up to three DJs or performances, wireless LED headphones - which enables the freedom to choose which DJ you listen to, and the party people (obviously). 

These Silent Disco parties have already happened in Texas Festivals such as the Austin City Limits Festival, Kerrville Folk Festival, Euphoria Festival, and Utopia Festival. Silent Disco is undoubtedly eye candy for festival organizers because it is completely unique, innovative, and trendy - which yields larger turnout and increased engagement. It is also gratifying to volunteer on a crew at these festivals and meet the Silent Disco Vibe Team.

The amount of dedication and hard work that flows into the process of making the party happen is commendable. The Silent Disco Vibe Team takes care of the entire process. For outdoor festivals, a huge canopy / tent must be pitched. As a finishing touch, Silent Disco Vibe uses uplights, LED moving head fixtures, & projections to set the mood. From high tech club-like environments, to vibed-out themed tents - the possibilities are endless.

So let’s say I’m in line for this awesome tent, and excited to experience a Silent Disco for the first time… To those who have never been to a Silent Disco, the unpredictable nature of what to expect builds a lot of anticipation. So come on then.. What’s next?

The whole process is executed seamlessly as they await their turn to receive a set of headphones. The team checks everybody in & out and hands them a set of Wireless LED Headphones with three channels - then after that shows them the volume control & channel control. The headphones change colors in their hands & fit comfortably with high sound quality.

Once the party begins and unfolds, all that you're seeing is all that you're feeling, too. The ambience of laughter and shuffling feet is a natural high witnessing this magic. Observing different types of people all gathered in a space together and dancing their problems away without any hesitation is such a treasure. That is just being on the outside of the spectacle… the moment you put on those headphones and dial into the DJ that hits your soul or plays your favorite song, you become completely encapsulated and immersed in an experience that every person feels at the same time respectively. This way, it’s easy to dance it out, get lost on a tangent, meditate, or surrender to the feeling of letting go. No matter how you get down and party, everybody around you will feel the magic permeating throughout the area.

When the quiet clubbing / social experiment concludes, there is still a great sense of euphoria and overall peace amongst the crowd. Sometimes, no words are necessary to express the overwhelming inclusiveness or joy one feels after returning that set of headphones back in. It is an experience that nothing else in a festival atmosphere or any other atmosphere can even replicate as far as we understand. To state this in a succinct manner, the concept of a Silent Disco party is on the forefront and cutting edge of revolutionizing how we choose to experience audial and visual sensations. This new avenue of partying your socks off is here to stay. In fact, Silent Disco is making such big waves that NCBI did a test that actually proves Silent Disco increases social closeness and lowers the amount of pain somebody feels for hours after the event.
