    Event description

    Set your inner creature free by stepping into the raw, untamed energy of the Undie Party {Animalistic}.

    Prowl, slink or flutter as the animal you embody while revelling in the rhythms of the wild.

    Upon arrival, pause and assess your new habitat. Our Consent Guardians will pulsate amongst moonlit foliage, ready to guide you into the heart of this evening's setting in The Broken Lantern in Ponsonby.

    The sonic growls of DJs will map a fierce evening ahead. While our animalistic movements are inspired by three body popping dancers, raised above the upstairs' dance floor.

    On this safari of respect, the evening's rare sightings will be captured by Askipar in our themed photo booth upstairs, while France Hémon peruses the whole event.

    The Undie Party {Animalistic} beats and immersive environment will draw us down to our primal instincts, so let your creative souls roar.



    2200 to 2345 — Rupert Esso

    Rupert Esso will ride us into {Animalistic} on pumping adrenaline. His expansive range of high-energy tech house has already taken many of us under his wing. With his signature enthusiasm behind the decks, join him to start your night off with a bang! SoundCloud @rupertesso

    2345 to 0115 — Chikaa
    Chikaa weaves a multicultural sound tapestry. Her love of world music has been the bedrock of her music career. The moniker of Jodine Stodart, Chikaa’s focus on creating immersive rides have taken her to many of NZ’s largest festivals, as well as Bali’s Spirit Festival, and Burning Man. SoundCloud @djchikaa

    0115 to 0300 — Patsy Skeet
    Surfing a wave of Ziggy’s stardust on a small white horse, Patsy Skeet arrived on this planet from far far away. Clutching a basket of grooves, the two set off on a musical mission to unearth our planet’s funkiest beats and esoteric classics. With pockets filled by a plethora of classics, glittery house tracks, and a small vial of disco they arrived at the Undie Party {Animalistic} to round out this magical evening. @patsyskeet

    2230 to 0000 — Max D. Ace
    Max D. Ace lives and breathes his love-binding affair with the beats that bring people together. Maxence Dautremant grew up in Paris playing the piano. He soon discovered hip hop, soul, funk and rap… then the heavens opened and the BPMs of house and techno rained upon him. Max D. Ace is a collector of culture, energy and experience; neatly packaged for our grinding dance floor of incredible humans. @maxd.ace

    0000 to 0130 — Gwendolyn
    Coined the Sparkly Weapon of Bass Destruction, Gwendolyn’s energy and style thrives on full lyric, big bass and badass drops. Feel your sweat drip to moan of her beats.

    An intersex transgender queen, Gwendolyn thrives on providing a safe dance floor for everyone — especially for the LGBTQIA community — her mission is for all to be seen, heard, and held with respect, compassion and love. Take note of her heart-felt catch phrase, "Remember I love you, as you, how you arrive” 🙋‍♀️🏳️‍⚧️♀️💖 @gwendolyn_hippo

    0130 to 0300 — Late To The Party
    Late To The Party blends hot tracks of the day, timeless classics and obscure gems to create an unforgettable dance floor. Come for the party, stay for the journey, leave with lasting memories. Recently headlining the legendary EXTRA DIRTY techno party in Sydney for their 15th birthday, Late To The Party has been all over.

    Alongside Auckland's rising star MBVR, Late To The Party has established the all inclusive techno party SIR. Check out their next installment via @slapitruff_sir 

    0030 to 0130 — The Butterfly Who Flew Into The Rave
    Oli Mathiesen with Lucy Lynch and Sharvon Mortimer present an Undie Party special of their award-winning show 'The Butterfly Who Flew Into The Rave'. This powerhouse of contemporary dance will gift us with a spectacle of rave endurance.

    Supported by Pride Elevates, the trio premiered at the Auckland Pride Festival 2024 to standing ovations before traveling to the NZ Fringe Festival where they received 3 awards and 3 nominations. We are pumped to welcome the trio at {Animalistic} before they take flight for international festivals later this year.
