Headphone Disco
Headphone Disco are the biggest 'silent party' people around performing their unique 'TwoDeejaySuperShow' to enthusiastic crowds around the world. Each show involves arming clubbers with their own set of wireless two-channel headphones, switching off the sound-system and having two DJs spin two completely different sets side by side from Headphone Disco's visually enhanced stage set-up. Call it a silent disco, call it a headphone party or call it whatever you want, either way it's a truly unforgettable experience.

Headphone Disco is a unique, surreal and hugely enjoyable experience that's been rocking the college, festival and club circuit since 2007. From London to Lisbon and Moscow to Montreal the reaction to this silent party sensation has been immense as party people embrace one of the most talked about and freshest of dance party experiences.
