Conception Lab II - Boxing Day

For those who don’t buy into the commercialism that comes with living in the ratrace, we are putting on another UNDERGROUND WAREHOUSE RAVE on BOXING DAY to turn that pudding you ate into DANCE FUEL!! 

Conception Lab is the new party brought to you by techno stalwart MBug, one of the original brains behind Messy Creations. This is our second event at the awesome Scratch Warehouse in North Melbourne, a stellar multi use venue, with raw warehouse edges and a cosy low volume chill space. Join us to experience a real warehouse rave and get nostalgic for the nineties music and vibe! 

What are we doing to help you RAVE?
We’ve got a super smick lineup of local and international acts with some of Melbourne’s dancefloor warriors! 

DOM PANG all the way from Osaka Japan will be playing a headline show with his first performance in Melbourne in 9 years fresh from playing alongside Pig and Dan on the Japanese leg of their world tour.

Our first announcement locals include FREYA (Solar Records) who has been tearing up the festival circuit this summer, as well as TONI PIXELTON, Melbourne DJ royalty; and of course our resident party animal MBUG

Second round acts to be announced shortly! 

Our custom airlock DJ booth is being reworked and upgraded with custom pixel mapped addressable LEDs strips, specially programmed lighting by DVISN digital, and LED generative visual mirror ball installations by Conception Lab. 

The awesome talents of photographer NICOLETTE THAIN will be in full force to capture you all in your best form so get in, get dressed & go nuts!!


Shake your thing on our dance podium like back in the day! And play with us in the EXTREME RAVE MAKEOVER CAVE, where you can get in touch with your inner shuffler, don some fairy wings, glitter yourself up, or glow till late and get photos taken of your RAVE persona, whether that’s different or the same as your regular garb.

The party starts at 4pm and goes till 3am!

There is no BYO at this event as the warehouse is licensed, and because we know ravers like to do things cheap so they have more money for glowsticks, we have arranged beer, basics and cocktails at pub prices! We guarantee a great night with a solid crew and four on the floor tunes that will keep you sweaty till late.
