Event description

Description

You control the music and the conversation

Right by the elevators, sits a table full of headphones and a few eager people checking guests into the “silent disco” in the top-floor penthouse. Up in the penthouse, everyone is wearing headphones — some with green lights, others with blue, and even red. Even the three DJs each have a color, but the whole place is oddly quiet.

Put on your headphones and its a DJ battle and epic dance party. Take them off, and it’s as quiet as an ice cream social.It’s a growing trend in big cities where noise ordinances and other limitations have encouraged club-goers to get creative.

What’s going on here?” you might ask. Well, it’s a quiet party. Put your headphones on, and the music starts.

Most Quiet Events have two or three DJs who play different music throughout the night. Each DJ is assigned a frequency and a color, like green, blue, or red, so that he can see how many people are on his station. And you can see, very easily. Each person’s headphones light up with the color of the station they’re listening to, leading to an odd form of peer pressure. You almost have a Facebook-style “fear of missing out” feeling when you are on a differently colored station from the crowd. Sometimes it seems like everyone is listening to the same DJ, but at other times it can be pretty well mixed. If a DJ plays a bad song, the crowd will often revolt and switch over to another station. It lays bare our natural instincts to both rebel and follow the crowd.
