They say you learn something every day – I certainly did yesterday. I was talking to Gill Tee of Entertee, organisers of the Party In The Park and Neil Young events at the Hop Farm at Beltring, when she asked me if I knew what a ‘Silent Disco’ was.
Rather embarrassed at this obvious dent in my street cred, I had to admit that I didn’t. She explained – when the live music ends but the audience want to carry on enjoying themselves, they simply put on wireless headphones and the DJ keeps playing. On the other hand, a “flash mob” silent disco is where the audience each play their own music using mp3 players and walkmans.
So now you know. And so do I!
