Clubbing is a pretty good way to let off some steam after a long week, but it’s kind of a “do it once and you’ve seen it all” kind of activity — step into any club in Singapore and you can expect them to be sticking to the same formula of dim lights, tight crowds and music so loud that it’ll age your eardrums by five years.

Okay, the first two are an unavoidable part of the scene, but if you’re thinking of putting on your dancing shoes this weekend and want to experience something a little different, then Silent Disco Asia’s 2nd Birthday might be just what the DJ ordered.

Not Your Average Night Out

For the uninitiated, here’s a video showing what The Silent Disco is all about:

For the benefit of those reading this at work / school / public transport, here’s the breakdown: every participant is given a pair of LED headphones, and will listen to music from them instead of being bombarded by some blaring speakers.

Another signature feature of the event is there’ll be not one, not two, but three DJ’s on the decks, and you’ll be able to seamlessly switch to a different genre of music at the touch of a button. These “channels” are colour coded via those LED’s, so it’s easy to find other like-minded people to dance with.

It might look like the biggest gathering of uncoordinated dancers to anyone watching from the outside, but chances are you’ll be having too much fun to notice or care.

Get High, Literally

For their 2nd birthday, it looks like the folks at Silent Disco Asia are pulling out all the stops — the event will take place at none other than the Marina Bay Sands rooftop, transforming the already-stunning observation deck into a 500 capacity dance floor.

And if you end up enjoying yourself a little too much and need a place to recover halfway, don’t worry: a ticket will also grant you admission to Ce La Vi, which — according to that video — is where the crazy rich asians hang out. As far as rest areas go, this is probably as posh as it gets.

Early bird tickets are already sold out, but you can still get in on the festivities for the regular price of $45. Considering that admission to the observation deck alone normally costs $23 and a ticket includes one complimentary drink worth $20, we say that’s a pretty good deal.

It definitely beats queuing up at Zouk again, at least.

Silent Disco Asia 2nd Birthday
Venue: Marina Bay Sands Observation Deck
Date & Time: 25th August 2018, 10pm – 2am
Admission: $45
