Kitsch, cool, and full of character, the Disco Shed was conceived in a moment of garden party madness in 2005 by club promoters and long time festival goers Peepshow Paddy and Count Skylarkin.
These days, Shedonism is sweeping the nation. Far more dangerous than either house or garage; so street it’s off-road and round the back. The scurge of Oxford City Council noise-prevention officers. The toast of festivals everywhere.
““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)
The original 8’x6′ harvest-gold rave machine features decks, lights, garden games by day, roof-mounted visuals bespoke visuals by Rumpus Animation and live VJs by night, The World Famous Disco Shed Inferno Smoke Machine (TM) so powerful it’s set the Herefordshire Fire Services on high alert, DJs, DIY and an ever-expanding army of Shedonists ready to rock your allotment any time, anywhere.
“My face is hurting from smiling and laughing so much… Who would’ve thought that a little shed could bring so much happiness to so many people. It’s crazy but I love it” Max McMurdo (Channel 4’s Amazing Spaces)
Best known to festival goers for their showstopping appearances at the likes of Bestival, Latitude, Shambala, Bearded Theory and Big Chill, 2014 saw the Disco Shed popping up on Channel 4 for an award-winning appearance on Amazing Spaces Shed of the Year, beaming Shedonism into the homes of some six million people.
“I love the Disco Shed” Tania Harrison, Latitude Festival curator
Fully mobile and self sufficient other than 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.
Best of all, the Disco Shed DJs really know how to throw a party…
“Love the Disco Shed – they are part of our family” Hugh Phillimore, Cornbury Festival organiser
