KAMPALA - The trend of a silent disco is widening its scope on the local entertainment scene, catching the fancy of mostly university students and urban youth.

That is why the Bell Jams Silent Disco at Ideal Platinum hostel of Makerere University Business School (MUBS), Nakawa on Sunday surfaced as a perfect entertainment treat for the present revellers.

The mystery that comes with watching people, wearing headphones, pulling off various dance strokes in a soundless ambience is entertainment in itself.

One without the headphones hears no music, which gives the effect of a room full of people dancing to nothing. But the moment one puts on the headphones, it is an electrifying world.

Unlike the speaker system aided disco, the silent disco form, with a mere switch, gives partiers choice to select which music to listen to.

Mixes from DJs including Roja, Xyzl, Slick Stuart, Tony, Nyowe and Slaughtered Elly, and performances from Voltage Music, Pallaso and Fefe Busi kept the vibe high on the show, dubbed Gamers Edition.

Deejays scratched the decks, with three playing on the each set. For the DJs, it was a competition to keep the audience on their channels.
