In a game of word association, “train station” and “silent disco” would be an unlikely pairing, but thanks to Silence Events and rail operator SNCF, these words are going to be uttered in the same sentence a lot more often in Paris in the next couple of months.
Gare du Nord, Europe’s busiest train station, is to be transformed into a giant silent disco on 11 July, according to French newspaper Le Parisien. The event will see the Paris train station play host to a dance floor of almost 4,000m2 between the hours of 11.30pm and 5.30am. Revellers will be able to choose between three DJs, take advantage of the bars that will be set up for the occasion, and for a select few, the Eurostar terminal will serve as a VIP area.
The silent disco is expected to attract some 3,000 people. Tickets cost 22-26€. A definite date for the diary
