A term used to describe one's usually pallid appearance after a big night out. Literally, if someone says "You've got your disco tan on", you will probably be looking rather white (usually only if you have an Anglo-Saxon appearance, obviously) and pasty with bleary eyes after a night of boozing and/or drugs under unnatural lighting. Essentially a slightly nicer way of saying 'You look like shit'.

See also the similar expression; 'a night on the tiles'.
