NY Times chronicles growth of silent disco

As the silent disco phenomenon continues to explode, more and more media outlets are taking note and writing about the concept’s growth. The New York Times recently published an extensive piece on silent disco in its print and online versions.

The Times spoke with Silent Events founder and owner Ryan Dowd for the piece:

He also recently received a call from a well-known production studio requesting a silent disco for a scene in an upcoming film. “They’re not making fun of it, so we’re going to do it,” he said.
