Types of Disco Lights


Disco lights create an exotic, mysterious atmosphere, and make people more comfortable in busting out their favorite boogie moves. It is important to keep the size of the room in mind when shopping for disco light to make sure the desired effect is achieved; too much light in a small room can be a nuisance or even a hazard to someone's vision. On the other hand, a few tiny lights in a large room won't provide the right atmosphere.


  • Strobe lights are iconic disco lights known for bringing an element of excitement to the party. The lights blink rapidly, simulating a stop-motion visual appearance on the dance floor. Strobe lights can be free-standing or hung above the stage and around the dance floor. Automatic strobe lights can be dictated by the tempo of the music. Laser strobe lights and LED strobe lights are alternative disco strobe light options.

Disco Ball

  • Disco balls have been a staple lighting option for decades. Rotating disco balls, hanging disco balls, classic mirror balls or different color mirrors are just some of the disco ball options. Disco balls can be found in a wide range of sizes to fit any party. Miniature disco balls are some of the most budget-friendly disco light options. Shine one light on a disco ball and spin the ball around; the light reflects of hundreds of small mirrors on the ball, creating hundreds of moving light beams in the room.

Black Lights and LED Laser Lights

  • Black lights are an electromagnetic radiant disco lighting option that create unique lighting effects, especially when used with fluorescent makeup and clothing and white fabric. LED laser lights are a modern disco lighting option, emerging at concerts in the 2000s. LED lights are energy-efficient and typically have a longer lifespan than regular bulbs. They can be found in various colors and can be coordinated with music or programmed for a laser light show. LED lights can be mixed with the classic disco ball for a combination of old and new.
