A ‘Deck Disco’ set up by DJs from Isle of Wight-based Hush will bring musical entertainment to Wightlink at its Portsmouth car ferry terminal on June 16.

The company usually host silent discos, however the trio of DJs will be turning up the volume on the upper car deck to get festival-goers in the party spirit.

Hush’s – DJ Crabbie, DJ Josh Peverley and DJ Stu Murray - will then head to the Isle of Wight Festival where they will be providing the silent disco at The Intoxicated Tea Rooms.
