Silent Disco

The LARGEST disco ball in the Northwest, designed by W. Glen Boyd and Ivan McLean is a central feature of What The Festival each year. This piece not only invites reflection, it creates it!

After the main stages go silent, attendees can head to one of the many other smaller stage offerings, or dance under the disco lights where this epic ball of fun is sure to keep the party moving with Silent Disco DJ sets!

Heartbeat Silent Sound Systems is a full service audio production company that offers an innovative solution for rising above the constraints of noise ordinances and less-than-welcoming neighbors. Rather than using traditional modes of amplification, we use high-powered transmitters to broadcast to an inter-connected network of wireless headphones. This means that your concert/party/event will only be heard and experienced by those wanting to be involved and neighbors will only hear your HeartBeat.

We have state of the art 3-channel headphones which allow for three silent stages to run concurrently with a broadcast range of 1500 meters in every direction. This means that your audience can alternate between audio channels with just a simple click of the headphones, and colored LEDs on each set light up to correspond to each audio source. Individual volume control on each set allows for each user to personalize their sound experience.
