About Silent Disco Events

Silent Events® – America’s Original Silent Disco Provider

Silent Disco event producer Silent Events® is more than just a wireless headphone rental company. Silent Events will provide you with full-scale event production. From sound engineers, DJs, and distribution specialists to lighting, staging and tenting, Silent Events delivers it all!

American owned and operated, Silent Events is the company that first brought the silent disco experience to the United States. Silent Events has been setting the standard for silent discos in America for over ten years. With over one hundred Silent Events produced annually, we truly are America’s first, largest, and most experienced silent disco providerSM.

Sometimes sending a box of headphones and wishing you good luck is just not enough. Rather than just send you a box of headphones, we feel that it really pays to have a trained sound engineer on site to install the transmitters, ensure all equipment is working properly, and resolve any transmitter interference issues. Our crew will mix the sound and microphone mixes live, work with the DJ’s inputs/outputs, run cabling, and help manage the silent party with you. It’s also important to have a distribution specialist at the entrance greeting your guests, fitting them with headphones, demonstrating how to operate the headphones, and servicing and sanitizing the headphones between every use. After your event, Silent Events’ experienced crew members will package and ship out all of the headphones and sound equipment. Having the Silent Events team on site ensures your event will run smoothly, allowing you and your guests to enjoy the event to its fullest.

Ryan Dowd, creator and owner of Silent Events, Inc., was the first person in America to bring this wireless technology and concept to festivals such as: Bonnaroo, ESPN X Games, Vans Warped Tour, Camp Bisco, Wayhome Music and ArtsBamboozle, Essence Music Festival, Treasure Island, South by Southwest, Bear Creek, Wakarusa, North Coast Music Festival, The Great GoogaMooga, and Jam Cruise.

Silent DiscGlowTM Multi-Listener Systems

Silent Events is the holder of a United States patent covering wireless multi-listener headphone systems including light emission changes dependent on selected transmission channels.

The outward displays of luminescent color from the headphones themselves provide a unique visual view to other listeners or other spectators of the venue, creating a new experience in the wireless multi-listener arena. Such a system allows for each listener to select different channels for different transmission sources and the colored lights indicate the channels listeners have chosen.
