Kick off your workday with this early morning rave

Step away from the treadmill. It’s time to transcend beyond the monotonous morning gym grind and experience a sweat session mixed with rave vibes, thanks to Morning People. They’re bringing the crack-of-dawn rave phenomenon that swept London to New Zealand, with a series of fortnightly events at Whammy Backroom on Karangahape Road.

Each rave starts at 6.30am and delivers 90 minutes of pulsing house bangers for shape-cutting, grooving and obtaining the ultimate endorphin kick. Event founders Jamie Newman and Vanessa Scott hope Morning People will bring guests energy, fun and ample “genuine human interaction” with which they can fuel their day. 

The events feature a rotating roster of top Auckland DJs, such as Dick Johnson, Matt Drake and Logan Baker. Once ravers have had a satisfactory  groove, they can chill out with complimentary side-of-dance-floor massages, fruit, coconut water and bottomless Altezano Brothers coffee.


Events cost $15 cash to attend, and the next is on March 22nd. Head to the Morning People website for more info.
