Party Anywhere. Anytime. Noise violations aren’t an issue – so parties can go wherever, when ever.

Rather than having to scream over the blasting bass, you can turn down the volume

Event Planning Tips

Planning a silent disco is very straight forward, but there are a few aspects that you should be sure to consider.

Location One of the best parts about having a silent disco is being able to host it anywhere. Being creative is always a hit with the crowd, so take the opportunity to plan on a venue that will enhance the experience. Rooftops, museums, aquariums, zoos and public parks are fair game.

Silent Disco Company Selection the equipment? If you are looking for a full service production company, we can recommend some excellent people for you. The majority of companies in the US fall into this category. We, on the other hand, focus on providing equipment for these companies and others who want to host their own silent discos.

Event Planning Tips

Equipment Selection Selecting the right headphones ultimately depends on the vision you have for your event. Are you planning for a small private party? Music festival? Corporate event? Having an understanding of your guests and their preferences will help you decide on the equipment that will best suite your needs. Over-the-ear or on-ear headphones? Some guests prefer the larger headphones to block out surrounding noise. Others dislike having to remove earrings or which type of headphones your guests will prefer. How many audio channels will the event require? 2 and 3-channel headphones are commonly available. You’ll have to decide which will work best for your event. 3-channel issues and confusion among the crowd.

Event Planning Tips

Logistics and Staffing Even large silent disco events can be simple to manage with the right preparation. Typically, the venue has a single entrance and a single exit. People receive a headset as they enter and return it as they leave.

events under 300 people, consider having 1 or 2 people handing out the headphones at the entrance and another person collecting them at the exit. For each additional 100 guests, plan to have an additional person on hand to help out.

Event Planning Tips

If a single entrance and exit isn’t possible, here are some other distribution ideas: Collateral Require an ID from each guest and associate the ID with the headset stock number. At the end of the event the guest returns their headset to receive their ID.

$

Cash Deposits Require a cash deposit to be returned when the headsets come back. The amount is up to you, but typically a $10 deposit is enough to make people remember. Good Faith If dealing with a smaller crowd you are not likely to have any issues. When hosting for a group of people you trust, simply remind them to turn in their headphones at the end of the night and they tend to do so.
