Come Saturday, September 1, one of Fortitude Valley's favourite pubs will become a huge dance floor — but, unless you're out there making shapes yourself, you won't be able to hear it. Yes, it's silent disco time as part of this year's Valley Fiesta, and the Pig 'n' Whistle on Brunswick Street is doing the energetic yet quiet honours.
Of course, if you're one of the 200 folks wearing headphones and stepping out under the lights, things will be rather loud. And bright, with the headsets boasting flashing LEDs to add to the disco vibe.
As for what you'll be dancing to, you'll have a choice. There'll be a DJ playing house music — but if you'd rather go retro, you'll also be able to tune into two channels playing 80s and 90s tracks, and reggae too. The fancy footwork runs from 8–11pm, with the $30 + booking fee tickets including a Red Bull cocktail on arrival.
