Irish festival to make world record attempt building world's biggest disco ball
The Biggest 90’s-00’s Disco Festival which takes place on June 25 th 2022 at Punchestown will attempt to break a world record by building the biggest disco ball in the world.
Irish company Spectrum Productions has been tasked by the event organisers to build the disco ball that will measure greater than 10.33 metres which is the current world record size that was lifted into the air and rotated at the Bestival Festival in 2014.
So – how big is this disco ball going to be? Think the height of a telephone pole or putting one giraffe on top of another and you are close! Yep, it’s going to be that big and it is currently being built in a warehouse in Dublin.
The festival is back and bigger than ever before, with 15,000 disco fans set to dance across three stages in Kildare this summer.
A spokesperson for the festival said “We have asked the team at Spectrum to build a giant disco ball to break the record – it will be nearly one tonne in weight and have over 1500 mirror tiles on it. It’s going to look spectacular when its hoisted into the air on the evening of the 25 th June”.
Tickets are available on Eventbrite (€71.51) and with a bus schedule from all over the country to bring revellers straight to the gates it promises to be a great day and night in the summer festival diary.
