So, your university is holding a big event, perhaps it’s fresher’s week, or the end of exams, or just a massive Saturday night at the students union and you need entertainment!
A Silent Disco is a brilliant, hilarious event to host at your university. Whether it’s the famous May Ball or June Events, or a big awards evening after party, a silent disco will not disappoint.
What even is a silent disco?
A silent disco is a party where the music plays exclusively into wireless headphones. No headphones on: no music in your ears.
This means a silent disco is, to an innocent bystander, a room full of smiling people dancing to nothing and singing three simultaneous songs, acapella. To the participant it’s an exciting disco where you have choice of what you’re dancing to all night.
Here are 8 reasons why you need a silent disco for your next student event
1. No compromising on music taste.
With three different channels on the headphones, you’re blessed with the choice of what kind of music you want to listen to.
No more suffering through your friend’s dodgy music tastes. You can have 90s R&B on one, indie anthems on a second, and ultimate cheese on the third. Throughout the party you can switch it up time and time again and tune in and out with your friends.
If you’re planning the event, you can centre the night around DJs playing 3 different music genres. For example, “Battle of the Genres”: House vs Student Anthems vs Drum & Bass. You could have Boy Bands vs Women that slay or have a Queer night with LGBTQ+ music through the decades.
The point is: the music is YOUR choice; the power is in your hands.
2. It’s hilarious.
When you take the headphones off, and everyone around you is singing loudly and dancing to… nothing… it’s just so bizarre. This experience is one of a kind and makes for some hilarious Instagram stories.
When you look back on the memories from this silent disco in Cambridge, you’ll see what we mean.
3. Hearing your mates talk.
One beauty about a silent disco at your university party is that you can take the headphones off at any time to speak to your fellow students, and actually hear them.
No more straining your voice over the blasting speakers or creating sign language signals across the room. If you want to talk to your mates, you can remove the headphones (or just turn the volume down on the adjustable volume dial), and converse. Happy days.
4. It’s Picturesque.
The wireless LED headphones light up in different colours of red, green and blue, and flash to the beat of the music. Picture a room full with hundreds of headphone lights!
5. You can sing as loud as you want.
When there’s a room full of students with headphones on, you can sing as loud as you want because 1: no one is going to care cos they’re in their own world, and 2: no one will hear you!
With no fear that people will hear your cat-like screeching and judge you: freedom at last. Aaaaand, with your choice of channel, you’ll be singing along to music you genuinely enjoy.
6. No noise pollution!
A silent disco will be, well, silent.
If you have neighbours or light sleepers in the area and your party is going on until 5am, that’s no problem. This means having a headphone party is ideal when you’ve had reports and noise complaints in previous years. You can party until sunrise with little concern for the surrounding people or residents.
On another note, you’re less likely to damage your ears. If you can’t hear your own voice over the music in a venue, the music is too loud and prone to damaging our ear drums. Pretty scary considering how loud uni parties usually are. On our headphones you can alter the volume for your delicate ears.
7. It’s cheap.
Surprisingly, hiring a Silent Disco Party in the UK is not even expensive. You can hire your own equipment to set up from as little as £95!

How does it work?
