Ex­pe­ri­ence si­lent disco on cloud nine

New Straits Times - - Entertainment - Ting By Loong Wai

FANCY get­ting “high” on your mu­sic? Par­ty­go­ers who want a dif­fer­ent party ex­pe­ri­ence can head for Desa Park City in Kuala Lumpur from Fri­day to Sun­day for a si­lent disco on cloud nine.

The con­cept of individual par­ty­go­ers danc­ing to mu­sic trans­mit­ted via wire­less per­sonal head­phones is not new. But, groov­ing to beats up in the sky, cour­tesy of hot-air bal­loons, is tak­ing the trend to new heights.

For­get the at­ti­tude and fo­cus on the alti­tude. Now, how cool is that? The event is part of the ho­tair bal­loon fes­ti­val, My Bal­loon Fi­esta.

Dur­ing the ride, hip-hop and house mu­sic will be played si­mul­ta­ne­ously on two sep­a­rate chan­nels.

Cus­tomers can chan­nel their in­ner hip-hop/house while danc­ing to their favourite tunes.

There will be an hour-long ses­sion of height­ened mu­si­cal bliss hap­pen­ing at 7pm daily.

Tick­ets can be pur­chased at the venue for RM25 per per­son (if there are spa­ces avail­able).

Tick­ets booked on­line are priced at RM20 per per­son via https://www.he­li­pad­cin­ema.com/tick­etssi­lent­disco.

For a group book­ing (four peo­ple or more), email tim@he­li­pad­cin­ema.com.

Each ses­sion is limited to 50 peo­ple.

All tick­ets pur­chased on­line in­clude en­try into the Si­lent Disco Bal­loon arena, a wire­less head­set rental, a wrist­band and glow­sticks.

The si­lent disco is a unique mu­sic trend that is sweep­ing across the United King­dom and Asia.

In 2008, KL-based DJ Gold­fish of the duo Gold­fish & Blink teamed up with DJ Rob (from the UK) to in­tro­duce si­lent disco in Malaysia for the first time.

Dubbed “42 Be­low”, the two dee­jays had set up a tem­po­rary club at the main en­trance of the Pav­il­ion Kuala Lumpur shop­ping mall and in­vited peo­ple to take part in the event.
