Silent Disco Dance Party
Saturday, Oct. 14 | 7-11 p.m. | 18+
Vermont Public's Colchester studios
365 Troy Ave, Colchester, VT 05446

Tickets are free: reserve tickets via Eventbrite

Dance the night away at this 18+ event in a unique way at our Colchester studios! What's a silent disco? Borrow a set of headphones and choose from one of three DJs to listen to as you boogie: Vermont Public’s own Ray Vega spinning Latin dance, North Country Public Radio’s David Sommerstein spinning world dance music, and local DJ Broosha playing drum, bass, and spooky tunes!

You'll be able to switch between channels and each "station" has its own color so you can see who is jamming along with you! Everyone gets to enjoy their own taste in music while dancing with everyone around them.

There will be a cash bar with free non-alcoholic drinks, a giveaway for the best costume* and a photobooth on site to capture memories.

*Come as you'd like, costumes are not mandatory. 

This event is generously sponsored by Aqua Vitea.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Bike, car or bus. Parking is available at Vermont Public, but space is limited so please arrive on time and always carpool if you can. Vermont Public is located at Fort Ethan Allen in Colchester and is also accessible by the GMT Route 2 Bus that runs between Essex Junction and Burlington.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
No, your name will be on the registration list at the door.

What is a Silent Disco?
A silent disco is where everyone at the party is lent a pair of headphones granting them access to three channels of music. The three channels are the three DJ's playing simultaneously at the party. Each channel has a different color shining from the headphones lets you see who else is tuned in too!

Do the headphones cost money?
NO! After buying your ticket you do not need to spend money on the headphones to enjoy the party.

Can you hear the music out loud through speakers?
No. You can only listen to the DJ's through the headphones.

Are costumes mandatory?
No! Come as you want!
