The Disco Shed

 London, England, GBR

Kitsch, cool, and full of character, the Disco Shed was conceived in a moment of garden party madness by club promoters and long time festival goers Peepshow Paddy and Aidan ‘Count’ Skylarkin.

Biography

The Disco Shed is festival-lands must-have accessory! Having rocked the allotments for years at The Big Chill, Latitude, Thames Festival, Beachdown, Reading, Cornbury, Truck and countless others, founding shedonists Peepshow Paddy and Count Skylarkin have built a brand-new, souped up shed for summer 2011 - complete with an 8'x6' roof mounted screen for visuals, new lights and a kicking soundsystem, housed in adjoining mini-sheds. You can still smell the creosote!

“I was reviewing the bands at Latitude on Friday and Saturday for the Guardian but I thought the best thing all weekend was the disco shed!”
Paul Lester (The Guardian)

Completely mobile and needing only a power source, the Disco Shed takes the best elements of modern clubbing but disguises it amongst all the stuff you‘d find in your Dad’s old shed, to make a truly unique entertainment space and novel curiosity, guaranteed to intrigue & interest, amuse & amaze at all times. Kids love hanging out and playing swingball outside it in the afternoons, grown-ups fall in love with its harvest gold contours when the sun goes down. There's a massive screen on the roof for visuals and a smoke machine so powerful it's set the Herefordshire Fire Services on high alert. Best of all, the Disco Shed DJs really know how to throw a party.

"I love the Disco Shed - it works really well" Tanya Harrison, Latitude Festival curator

The Disco Shedonists are well-seasoned in serving up a unique, accessible and fantastic atmosphere at all kinds of events. They look forward to seeing you in a field, soon!

"Love the Disco Shed - they are part of our family" Hugh Phillimore, Cornbury Festival organiser
