a really clever idea from the organizers of glastonbury. essentially, due to noise restrictions past midnight, they are handing out 3,000 sets of wireless headphones for people to listen to the DJ set with.
Emily Eavis, one of the organizers said, "I like the idea of people dancing in total silence," said Emily Eavis, one of the festival organisers and daughter of the founder Michael Eavis. "Imagine if you were feeling a bit worse for wear and thought, 'This would be a nice quiet place to sit down.'
"You would be completely freaked out to see 3,000 people dancing in silence. It's certainly quirky, but our big push this year is keeping the noise down because that's what the council is keen on."
Attention New York club owners! Spare yourself the money for the fuck off system that you'll never really be able to crank up due to pesky neighbors and noise ordinances. Buy tons of amazing sennheiser wireless headphones and do the aforementioned instead. I'll be there.
