Video of Silent 'Boat Disco Party' in Amsterdam Makes Us Want to Go

This city has so many fun perks.

If you've ever been on a cruise on a music festival, there's a very good chance you've been introduced to the concept of "silent discos." Basically, everyone at the event wears headphones and dances to the music they're listening to — and depending on the DJs who are there, there's a good chance the person next to you is listening to something totally different, which makes for a really fun (and hilarious) experience.

Apparently, they're quite common in Amsterdam, but according to a TikTok video from @theamsterdamexpat, there's a bit of a twist that we haven't seen so far at silent discos in the United States: There, they sometimes happen on boats.

You have to see this — it looks like so much fun!

It's a little funny to see people dancing to what looks like no music as they float on by, but we imagine that's part of what makes it so enjoyable for the people participating. Seeing them having so much fun is really making us want to do a silent disco on a boat ourselves... especially knowing that this is just one of the many reasons to plan a visit to Amsterdam.

The commenters on the video seem to agree with us. Who wouldn't want to experience this at least once? 

"Currently here. It’s even more amazing than what the internet says," one traveler wrote.

Yep, this is enough to convince us to start looking up flights. Add Amsterdam to the list!
