Looking for a way to break your monotonous, mid-week morning routine? Well, the happy folk of Morning Gloryville are eager to help.
Morning Gloryville offers its conscious clubbers an immersive morning of holistic health and energetic dancing. Nicknamed the ultimate wake-up call, this early morning rave – from 6:30am – 10:30 am – comes without the added vices most raves usually have. Instead, enjoy organic coffee or a superfood smoothie.
These high-octane four hours were created for people who still enjoy the energy and rhythm of the dance floor, but may have left their raving lifestyle of the previous few decades behind them. Most partygoers are professionals and usually head off to work when music comes to an end, but event organisers also encourages families and children to attend.
Each event has a theme, and promotes all guests to dress up accordingly. The next event, “Marriage of Heaven and Hell” Party, on April 27th, is celebrating everything light and dark in the world – and in us. Each Gloryviller must bring a ring to pass on to a fellow raver, with a celebrant and a ceremony to follow, promoting people to “marry” their community.
The home of these empowering mornings is at Oval Space in Bethnal Green, also referred to as the “Mother Ship” and/or “Gloryville HQ”. This venue hosts a state of the art drum n’ bass Audiotechnik sound system, two outdoor terraces and floor to ceiling windows, which is perfect for watching the sun come up over the decommissioned gasworks and industrial landscape of East London.
“It’s really hard to put it into words but the vibes coming from a crowd of completely sober ravers giving it 100% energy and happiness at 6:30 am,” said Bradley Gunn, who works as a software developer Monday – Friday. “I have never seen an entire crowd smiling so much and dancing with so much pure energy. From start to finish my mind and body was pumping with energy like never before,” he said.
Jemima Gibbons, a social media strategist, reassured that “the hardest part is getting out of bed – once you’re there, it’s completely worth it!”
The sober raving venture began in East London in 2013, and has now spread its creative energy to 23 locations worldwide, including Australia, USA, Canada and various capital cities throughout Europe. With previous acts including Basement Jaxx and Fatboy Slim supplying the music, it’s no wonder that it was given a critics choice for clubbing in London by Time Out, and most recently, the Best Zero Alcohol Initiative in the UK.
Tickets are currently available on their website – £12.50 for students, and £16.00 for the general public, excluding booking fee.
