Morning raves are a big trend right now. Yes, raves! Just scroll through Instagram and you might notice a friend is up and at it at 7 a.m., but not to hit the gym—to dance, instead.
That's how I found out about them. My friend Caitlin McCarthy, an interior designer in Los Angeles, woke up early one morning to join hundreds of Angelenos for Daybreaker—a sober morning dance party—and I just happened to see her post while sipping my first cup of coffee.
Morning raves are exactly what you think they are. They're held in large, dark venues where a DJ spins loud house music or EDM, while people dance, sway and jump around. But instead of all-night ragers, they start at sunrise and go for about an hour or two.
"I think they are fantastic and a great way to get morning exercise in without feeling like you're working out," says McCarthy. "And when it's held in a dark nightclub, you really can't believe it's only 8:30am by the time you're kicked out."
Daybreaker started in New York, but the concept is spreading fast. Betsy Newman, a photographer, says she was at the first morning rave in Los Angeles last year, and since then she's been to a handful more.
"It's the best way to start your day," she says. "Strangers become fast friends as you dance to the sunrise and you leave feeling like you've lived your day fully when everyone else is just waking up."
But if you're feeling edgy (or need a little kick), don't expect to find a trove of psychedelics. The drug of choice at this type of party is caffeine or kombucha. After all, the point is to get your day started right, not to crash and burn it.
