V Festival 2014

Summer sun with Club 18-30

For seven years SilentArena has had the pleasure to work alongside Thomas Cook to supply silent discos to their resorts around Europe. With up-to 650 headphones at each report and running every week we've seen thousands of the summer sun chasers come through our doors. A Club 18-30 holiday is a fundamental rite of passage, it's what the summer's all about. Rounding up your mates, and looking forward to that one week of freedom. Everybody in one place, no ties, no responsibilities, no work. Just beautiful sunshine, warm waters, cool tunes, and great night-life where you can dance till sunrise.

Battersea Power Station

Last night saw SilentArena in attendance at the star studded inaugural Battersea Power Station Annual Party with 3,000 guests present. We were there as part of the celebrations to provide sound for the 4D light show, projected onto the north elevation of the building, which followed a ninety minute set from Sir Elton John. On the night we provided a full service to the organisers including technicians, hand-out staff and 3,000 headphones to ensure that no one missed out on the full experience of the show. The site is home to a pair of nesting peregrine falcons, the only known pair in London, whom have been nesting on site since 2000. As such noise needs to be limited outside the station so as not to…

Reading and Leeds 2013

We returned to our second home of Reading and Leeds Festival once again this summer to supply the roaring crowds with our awesomely popular post-headliner silent disco's, referred to by reviewers as 'silent arenas' being the 'bedrock of [Reading & Leeds] Festival’s after dark nightlife.' With performances from some of the biggest musical acts in the world and with the reputation as the wildest festival in Europe, we couldn't wait for the weekend to begin. Our Leeds team headed up on the Thursday night to give a head-start to the festivities, hosting a silent disco at the SilentArena tent on the opening night for the very first time. With a stock of 5000 headphones for this tent alone, the crowds…

Rewind Festival 2013 Review

We once more made our yearly leap back in time to the '80's this summer, re-visiting one of our favourites, Rewind Festival. Held at both scenic Henley-on-Thames and lively Perth, Scotland, we came ready to bring the best music of people's childhoods for those who are just not ready to grow up, at least for a weekend. With such hugely nostalgic acts making their way to the stage after decades of their hits being enjoyed by fans – The Sugarhill Gang, Billy Ocean, Chesney Hawkes, Go West - we knew that the crowds would definitely be out in storm and style. We definitely weren't disappointed as the first of our silent disco events went underway and all the excitement for the whole festival was very…

U.E.A. Freshers 2013

Another brilliant student union event where everyone showed up with a relentless need to party, the students of the Norwich based university did it in style. The weather being surprisingly mild for mid-autumn gave everyone the excellent excuse to get out while they could and enjoy the night and what better way than with SilentArena in their popular student union. With the perfect balance of musical tastes being catered for, people couldn't stay off the dance floor for the whole night, despite the promised allure of inexpensive drinks from the bar. We managed to interrupt the singing and dancing for a brief moment to take photos of people, arms around each other and smiles on their faces. Click here to…
