Photos: This Is What A 6:30 A.M. Rave Without Drugs Looks Like
If you can wake up at the crack of dawn for a crossfit or yoga class, maybe you can do it for a 6:30 a.m. morning rave, too.
Daybreaker, an all-out dance party sans drugs or booze, returned to Los Angeles for an event at Wanderlust in Hollywood on Thursday. While these events are held in different cities internationally, it feels like a very L.A. thing to do, especially with the millennials. "It is about being in the here and now, surrounded by amazing people, beautiful music, and an incredible vibe," according to Daybreaker's website. "It is about dancing your face off before work and feeling gloriously healthy while doing so. It is about love, it is about mindfulness, and it is about mischief."
Folks popped in for the two-hour morning rave, with many wearing pajamas, especially Christmas- and Star Wars-themed ones. LAist photographer Annie Lesser says the vibe is a fun one, with a DJ spinning and a full brass band playing live in the crowd. People would randomly break into circles and they could get in the center to show off their moves. "At one point people started using a tennis racket to pass along who was dancing next (kind of like a talking rock)," Lesser says. "Then they used it to do limbo."
In the last 10 minutes, the group sat down, while singer Charles Jones serenaded them with R&B music, before singing Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy" and bringing the tempo back up to a dance party. And in the same vein as yoga class affirmations, at the end of the event, each person read an intention off of a card.
The Daybreaker event cost $25 for the dance party, and $30 for an even earlier 5:30 a.m. admittance (for people who can actually get up that early) and an additional yoga class. There was complimentary coffee, yogurt, vegan bars, smoothie shots and flavored water offered at the event. To hear about the next event, visit their website here and sign up for updates.
