Last weekend played host to Unlicensed Events Headphone Disco event on both Friday and Saturday. Friday night was organised for the youth of Beith (i.e the under 18’s) and Saturday night was open to all.
The evening was fantastic fun, what a laugh it was watching all your friends dancing and singing to the music being pumped through their earphones. At times some were rocking it out to a Limp Bizkit track, whilst others were gently swaying to Abba. When taking off the earphones, it was bizarre as the room was silent other than the sounds of people feet dancing and those who were brave enough to sing along out loud to the sounds on their headset.
Each set of headphones had two channels, so party-ers could switch back and forth depending on what song they preferred, this itself also brought a lot of hilarity. On one channel a massive hit might come on whilst you were listening to the other, and all of a sudden all your friends are jumping about, waving their hands in the air and all singing (or screaming) to the anthem. This left those on the other channel totally confused, as they thought to themselves this song isn’t that good, then realisation would hit that the other channel was playing a completely different song.
Below are the pictures from Friday and Saturday’s Headphone disco, to add to the hilarity of the night, there was also a photo booth where party people could dress up in fancy dress and partake in silly poses for the camera. For the kids who wanted a break from the music an arts and crafts table was set up, so they could create something to help them remember this weird and wonderful evening for ever.
