The Art of Human Power

HIRE US: Big Bicycle Disco

EVERYONE LOVES 70's and 80's disco music. Even more when it's 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 a 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!
