The whole idea of Gypsy Disco is that we want to bring people together and to make it something more than just a club night. We hope to create a sort of playground where people can explore and interact with the night as well as with people which is why we have created a variety of structures and areas for our audience members to immerse themselves with. Within the collective we emphasise a policy of ‘no ego’ whereby we are all the same regardless of what role we have, this we hope is then transgressed within the event as we show we don’t take ourselves too seriously which I think is important to make everyone feel comfortable and relaxed.
And so I arrived at the highly anticipated ‘Gypsy Disco’ at the Concorde 2 with high expectations from all the excited rumours spreading around Brighton. On approaching the Concorde 2, I could already catch glimpses of vivid colours, glitter, fire breathers and hear the faint whispers of gypsy melodies and thumping bass-lines. The queue outside was phenomenal as advance early bird tickets had sold out weeks before and everyone was attempting to get their hands on one of the last golden tickets. However, A Gypsy Disco queue is no ordinary queue as we were welcomed by the likes of fire breathers and a live, acoustic gypsy band to keep us entertained whilst preparing for the adventure ahead.
