T in the Park: Silent Disco

A few years ago I went to the album launch for Aphex Twins album Drukqs at the Barbican. On arrival, we were presented with wireless headphones which were to be worn as this was the only way playback of the album could be heard. Last year I read about a similar concept called Silent Disco which was at Glastonbury. In a similar way, punters wear headphones and dance to the music only they can hear. It was my first time seeing it in action last weekend, and it was a rather strange thing to see: About 150 people, dancing around in total silence, to suddenly all put their hands in the air and start singing "I Predict a Riot"!! I didn't get chance to have a go myself, but I'm sure the opportunity will come up again soon. Silent wanking anybody?
