School Ball & After Party Silent Disco

Image of School Ball Hire

There’s a new trend in town and it’s here to take your school ball, formal or after party to a whole new level. Instead of your guests all listening to the same song played over an amplified sound system, they can each be wearing special light-up wireless Silent Disco headphones tuned into any one of four audio channels, picking the song that appeals to them most at that particular moment.

Depending on which channel they choose, school ball guests are either hearing a live mix from your DJ (or two or three or four DJs!) or a pre-mixed playlist that can be played from any phone, tablet, laptop, or anything else with an audio-out jack. As you switch channels, the colour on your headphones change so you can see what everyone around you is listening to. If you don’t like a song and if your friends nearby seem like they’re rocking out, you can tune in and join them.

When it comes to the type of entertainment you can have on the headphone system, the sky’s the limit! Basically anything that can be amplified can be fed through the headphone channels, including sound from live DJ’s, video screens, and even full bands. When it comes to booking entertainment for your school ball, you should decide how many channels will have live DJ’s on and schedule accordingly.

If you’re on a tight budget you can totally get away with four playlist channels, or, one live DJ and two, or three playlist channels. Having two simultaneous DJ’s live battling for your attention is the ultimate buzz. With this setup, each DJ plays during the same time slot and specialises in a different genre, theme, or decade of music. Best of all there’s no loud noise so everyone is free to catch-up and talk easily without having to yell over the music.

All of our headphones have their own volume control, feature an active noise reduction system for pumping sound and are supplied fully charged so you won’t need to recharge the headphone batteries unless your school formal is longer than 6-8 hours. Our state-of-the-art broadcast system can transmit the audio signal up to 300 metres through walls, floors and ceilings.

There’s no right or wrong way to put on a silent disco so we’re here to help your school ball committee, DJ’s and production crew put together the ultimate Silent Disco experience. You can run the Silent Disco as your main event or create an alternative Silent Disco space in a separate room.

We can help with everything from how to connect the DJ mixers, the best lighting set-ups and headphone management systems so people don’t try to take the headphones home with them.

How A Silent Disco Works


A Silent Disco (or headphone party) is when music is transmitted through special light-up wireless headphones rather than played over an amplified loudspeaker system. Coloured LED lights pulse to the music and change colour so you know which channel your friends are listening to.

The setup is as simple as plugging in your own phone, tablet, laptop, iPod, CD Player, or anything else with an audio-out jack. For an additional fee we can also provide music players packed with the greatest anthems – or request your own personalised playlists.

We deliver all the gear you’ll need well in advance with Free nationwide delivery! Simply plug and play by connecting our transmitter to any audio source. After the party you pack the kit away, and our courier will collect it again.

It’s not only fun to be a part of, but intriguing to watch and listen to everyone as they dance and sing together. It’s a unique experience your guests haven’t seen a hundred times before, and is interactive, exciting, and totally memorable!
