American owned and operated, Silent Events® was the first company to bring the silent disco party experience to the United States. Silent Events has been the standard for silent disco headphone rental in America since 2007. With more than nine hundred Silent Activations produced annually, we truly are America’s first, largest, and most experienced wireless headset rental provider. Owner and creator, Ryan Dowd, was the first person in America to bring this wireless technology to America and has been working in the music industry for over two decades. He has worked professionally in the fields of audio engineering, lighting design, artist management, and event production. He used his experience and passion in designing some of the technology Silent Events uses today. He even held patents on the glowing function of our Silent Discglow® wireless headsets. If you see a headphone glowing, that’s the brainchild of our founder, Ryan Dowd.

In addition to nationwide silent disco headphone rental, Dowd applied his hands-on approach to Silent Conference Breakouts with our Silent Solutions™ department and our Xecutive™ 10 channel conference headphones. These headphones allow you to have 10 independent channels of content to be used for activations such as: presenters speaking through a microphone while being streamed straight to the headphones; dividing a room into up to 10 different breakouts sessions to better utilize your event space also saving money and time; Using our Discglow® self-powered mobile transmitter with a hands-free microphone to hold demos at your booth on the tradeshow floor. This transmitter needs no power outlet as it’s self-powered and allows you to wirelessly connect to a device such as a phone or tablet to play pre-recorded content or music while you talk! This is also a great solution for walking tours and fitness activities such as Silent Yoga™ and spin classes.

In 2009 Dowd founded the University of Silent Disco®. This department specializes in working with students and advisors alike to properly plan an on-campus Silent Disco Party. From working on the quotes, contracting, vendor forms, insurance paperwork and advancing event details, The University of Silent Disco team will take care of all your college campus silent disco party needs!

Really Quiet Concerts

Silent Events is considered the founding father of this movement. Created by Ryan Dowd, a former tour manager for Widespread Panic and Drive-By Truckers, the company introduced wireless headphone disco parties at Bonnaroo


Dance party craze presses ‘mute’ on speakers

“I think it’s become a phenomenon because there are so many ways to enjoy it,” says Dowd. “If you don’t like loud music, you can dial down the volume. If you don’t like a certain type of music, you can change the channel. If you don’t dance, you can people watch.


Bonnaroo 2012 Review

The crowd inside a relatively small tent all grooved out together while the sound is transmitted to personal wireless headphones instead of a normal PA system. To claim that the experience is surreal and a trip is an understatement. This one of a kind experiment should not be missed. I would not be surprised to see one popping up in an urban area near you soon.
