What is Silent Disco Squad?
Silent Disco Squad brings
the transformational power of the dancefloor into everyday moments by organizing
massively public, participant driven Danceparties. Using mp3 players, smartphones, and
headphones, all SDS participants hear the same music at the same time, transforming
everyday moments in to a Silent Disco Squad.
Silent Disco Squad is an experimental Danceparty that creates
shared music experiences in everyday moments. SDS started with there
- - How can we carry the power of the dancefloor into everyday moments?
- - Does technology bring us closer together or further apart?
- - How can you scale a vibe without losing integrity?
We believe the Dancefloor is a powerful space deeply embedded within human
culture. The Dancefloor is a transformational of expression, connection, and community.
We intent to bring the power of the Dancefloor into everyday Urban moments!

Participant DrivenWe all cocreate each SDS by submitting Dancetracks ahead of
time. The organizer picks songs and uses the selection to make the crowdsourced
Dancemix. Participants bring their own headphones and music players. Each of us
contributes our unique song, dance, and good vibes, creating the SDS magic~
Shared Music ExperienceThe Dancemix is distributed ahead of time as mp3 and
become available on the website's event page. We meet up at a designated time and place
then countdown "3,2,1 Play!”.
We hit play as the Dancemix starts to stream. We all listen to the same music at the same time and groove!
Massively PublicWe groove outside, in public space. While there is a barrier
to entry (music player + headphones), we aim to make it as easy as possible to join in
Bring a headphone splitter and an extra pair of headphones! Everyone is
CelebrationThrough our dance and expression we celebrate our selves, our city,
and life itself.
We respectfully spread joy and mayhem ~:D
