DOES the start to your day consist of a bleary-eyed attempt at eating cereal over breakfast television?
Yesterday morning hundreds of ravers said goodbye to the mundane and hello to Morning Gloryville – an early morning, pre-work rave held in a Brighton nightclub.
More than 300 clubbers defied the norm and ‘raved their way into the day’ at the Shooshh club in Kings Road Arches.
Featuring pumping music from DJs, yoga, massages and breakfast, hundreds of glow-stick clad partygoers took to the dancefloor from 6.30am for a clubbing experience like no other.
Organiser Jim Mitchell said the event was “all about creating good vibes”.
He said: “It went really well. It was a great success. It’s about getting people together to have a party, get fit, network, and have an opportunity to dance, hang out and have a good time to start off your day.
“We had a real mix of people including a lot of professionals who wanted to dance before work and also families with children too.
“Our talented DJs Adam Freeland, Mojo Filter and Bobby Lost, plus MC Kernel, took care of the tunes and there were yoga classes with Nine Lives Yoga and free massages with Magnus the Masseur.”
Asked how early morning clubbers compared to their night time counterparts, Jim said: “What you find is people are more competent at dancing when they’re sober. They kick their legs up high and really go for it but I think they need a bit more space when they’re sober.
“Everyone was going for it and jumping up and down to all sorts of music like party classics, mash-ups, house and breaks. It was really up-beat and feel good with styles to suit everybody.”
The party was the first of its kind in Brighton but similar events have been held across the UK.
The idea has caught attention in New York, San Francisco, Barcelona, Paris, Sydney and Tokyo.
Clubbers could take respite from pulling shapes on the dance floor with a selection of refreshments.
Jim said: “There were smoothes, Lassi Indian shakes, falafel breakfast boxes and coffee.
“The Morning Gloryville name comes from the idea of having villages in cities that share the morning experience.”
