/ Event Hire - Bicycle Disco

Imagine Festival

Imagine Festival

People of all ages (even the kids!) love 70's and 80's disco music and there's nothing more satisfying than playing these old school tunes using vinyl records all powered by bicycle.

Over the last year we’ve been trawling friends' attics, charity shops and markets for 70’s and 80’s vinyl records. We now have a fine collection of records with everything from 'Walk Like an Egyptian' by the Bangles to 'Word Up' by Cameo.

Anyone can come along to our Bicycle Disco, choose a record and become a DJ for an afternoon and it's up to you to pick the right record to keep the cyclists going! The entire installation is powered by bicycle and there are no batteries. So when the pedalling stops, the music stops allowing the audience to effectively 'vote with their feet'. It's really great way to get kids involved, especially when many haven't even seen a record before, never mind getting the opportunity to play one!

The energy from fun, dancing, laughter, music and pedalling are the most importance aspect to any Electric Pedals Disco. This green clean energy is used to amplify the disco to increase the number of people having dancing and having a good time together. It's perpetual, the more people pedal, the more the music increases the energy levels the more reliable our clean energy source and the more fun that people have Music - people - pedalling in perfect harmony.
