This is either the weirdest or coolest thing I've heard of.. I can't decide

Because of noise ordinance laws in Europe, club
owners have created "silent discos“ where club
goers listen to music through headphones.

I've been to these before and it was awesome, I had 3 chanels on my headphones, and 3 live sets were played at once. One chanel had house music, one had death metal/hard rock, and one had reggae. These things are common in music festivals.
I was listening to house music and one chilling, while metalheads were going crazy all over the place. When you take the headphones off all you hear is people rustling (seriously)

As a metalhead I approve and wish I knew where to find one of these place.

This was at EXIT music festival in Serbia, they have a silent disco stage every year. But I'm sure there are other music festivals with it closer to you.

Hard rock to full on death metal is quite a transition

That really rustles my crow.

Its actually quite useful when trying to talk to someone as you just take your headphones off.

******* CAN ACTUALLY READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!!!!
They can hear, and see what you're visually thinking. This is the absolute complete truth!!!!!

******* hide their mind reading abilities by a lot of them having completely expressionless faces so they don't accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don't like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and ******* segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
******* also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.

Try thinking, and visually picturing things that are as wild as you can when you are around ******* , and look for ******* who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.

PLEASE SPREAD THE MESSAGE!!!!! THE WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW THIS!!!!!

Just don't try and take this ******** headphones off!

It's weird as **** being able to instantly turn off the pumping tunes and have a conversation whilst everyone else is party hard around you, though.

Imagine looking through the windows of the club from the outside, see a bunch of people dancing, and theres no music.

Now that's a sight when you walk in the club and see bunch of idiots shaking in silence...

I guess you've never been to a silent disco... The funniest thing about it is taking off your headphones and listening to the racket of everybody going full-confidence-Celine-Dion-mode and blasting their lungs out trying to sing their favourite song and yet failing terribly.

That's only in 4 European countries. And there are no European laws, but there are EU laws.

You're forgetting that Americans still think Europe's a country.
#137 to #129 - victorianfancyman (07/29/2013) [-]
Which Americans are we talking about here?

I don't know a single American over the age of 6 that thinks Europe is a country (or any of that other **** elitist tea-sipping ballkicking wine sipping eurofags think we don't know)
User avatar #140 to #137 - TheHutchie ONLINE (07/29/2013) [-]
I was actually making a little joke dude. Common sense dictates that the majority of Americans know fine that Europe is not a country.

Basically, according to most Americans on Television, the United Kingdom is "England", and is not included in Europe.

They often say things like "In Europe..." when they actually mean a specific country or part of Europe.

"War is the world's way of teaching Americans geography"? How can you not get this running joke by now?

If pointless butthurt was food, you'd have just filled me up to the point of vomiting.

Yea and I was looking for an excuse to throw a bunch of european generalizations together too
I forgot to include skirt wearing though..

Every country has its idiots. Unfortunately, for reasons we've yet to fully discover, idiots are considered a necessary evil by evolution.

sometimes there are a few dj´s at the same time, and you just swith between the dj´s by pressing a little button on the headphone =)

We had that some weeks ago in club here.   
There were two djs and you could switch between their music.   
This has nothing to do with laws, it's just an experimental way to party.   
Although it was cool experience, I prefer the "normal" way.

I've been to a silent disco outdoors before. It was pretty fun, there's like three stations to choose from and everybody is dancing and its quiet as **** .
#96 to #22 - Rascal (07/29/2013) [-]
This is a killer idea, I wish I knew where to find them in my area.
User avatar #154 - BerryLicious ONLINE (07/29/2013) [-]
I went to a silent disco at uni, it was great fun. You have different channels you could choose from, so you didn't have to listen to pop, or rap, or whatever, you had a choice.
However, I complained rather loudly about one DJ's choice of music on one channel, forgetting there was no sound beyond my headphones. I was subjected to ten minutes of Justin Beiber on all channels, for ten minutes.
User avatar #170 to #154 - thenewgizmobox (07/29/2013) [-]
couldn't you just take the things off?
#133 - budva (07/29/2013) [-]
There are no laws. Silent discos are fun as a once in a while thing. They usually have two channel headphones with two dj's battling it out for the dancers attention. You can have a conga line going whilst there are people doing the dirtiest skank known to man. It's pretty sick.

im European.. and had no idea that this was a thing...

back here in Norway we couldn't give a **** about someone who got offended by the Noise from the Club... that's their own fault for living so damn near the club. i mean, what did they expect?

that's not all there are usually at least 2 djs playing different music... went to one where 1 dj was playing House whilst the other was playing minimal techno.. fun ****
User avatar #167 - erpetrich ONLINE (07/29/2013) [-]
My University organised one, it was pretty **** , partly for the fact that the headphones kept falling off, but also because the DJ was putting on two different songs at the same time, on two different channels, so half the dance floor was attempting to dance to something like Nirvana, while the other was trying to dance to something like Afrojack, the novelty wears off after about 30 mins.
