The Silent Disco is becoming a trend in Kampala nightlife of late. From Garden City to Gatto Matto and many more venues that have hosted one previously, it is highly evident that we are yet to see bigger and better silent events in the months to come. Last Friday at Gekko lounge revelers were treated to a silent party Courtesy of Kellagram, RadioCity, TangaFX and House Of Djs.
The event started at about 8:30pm at the Mackinnon Suites based hangout and this saw revelers trickling in steadily, picking up their headphones and heading up to the terrace. The place was dead silent and all you could hear were mumblings of song lyrics. The djs were all at the top of their game and you could see everyone dancing to one of the 3 music channels. Well, all these events are not limited to a certain audience hence we got to see some celebrities stepping in to experience the silent experience. These included comedians; Anne Kansiime, Salvado and Bugingo, musicians; Navio, Flex D’Paper, Ken Kayongo of Swahili Nation, Timothy Code and socialite Judith Heard.
The venue was full house by midnight and everyone was enjoying tunes from a concrete lineup of Kampala’s finest deejays including Deejay Jo, Dj Simples, Dj Crisio, Dj Naselow, Dj Ciza, Selector Jay, Dj EdWizzy and many more. The event went on till late and everyone went home with total satisfaction. We are also sure the neighbors had no noise complaints raised and no one asked the organizers for their money back. We hope to see you all at the next edition.
