Silent Disco


Saturday, November 9 / 6 - 8 pm
Silent Disco
Featuring: Radio DJ's

Rather than using a speaker system, music is broadcast via an FM-transmitter with the signal being picked up by wireless headphone receivers worn by the participants. Those without the headphones hear no music, giving the effect of a room full of people dancing to nothing.

The Radio DJ's are a collective of the planet’s most progressive music selectors. dublab sets cross genres and defy classification. Each DJ digs deep to find rare gems. Their mission is to share beautiful music with wide open ears. Whether dublab is bringing dance floors to a boil, exploring magic experimentalism or spinning far out, eclectic sets lucky listeners will absorb all shades of future roots sound.
