“I’ll have a sausage roll with a rave please,” they further jokingly captioned before explaining that the event wasn’t totally random, and it had, in fact, been organized for a new song called Yesterday by British DJ Schak, Scott DJ Will Atkinson, and singer Abi Flynnsinger.

The clip drew many comments from various fans of the British bakery chain, with a TikTok user writing: “How does one get tickets to a Greggs rave???”

A person commented: “I am the biggest introvert alive and I would 100% attend a Greggs rave.”

Someone joked: “Welcome to the UK.”

An additional viewer penned: “Greggs needs to now open a club and serve sausage rolls and steak bakes all night.”

Someone else remarked: “What people don’t realize is that in Newcastle every club has a Greggs.”

A separate individual chimed in: “Putting the Rave in Gravy.”

Greggs teamed up with acclaimed Schak and Will Atkinson to host an “after-hours” DJ performance aimed at dance music fans, the food-on-the-go retailer said in an official statement.

Newcastle native Schak is notable for holding flash mobs in various locations, including a home improvement B&Q store, a Tyne and Wear Metro train, the Shields Ferry, on board a bus, and outside St James Park following a Newcastle United victory.

Meanwhile, Will Atkinson, from Glasgow, saw his debut album, Last King of Scotland, topping the charts in the UK.

Both artists gave music and foodies a performance to celebrate the release Yesterday, with singer Abi joining the pair to perform live during the set.

Fans were treated to the unique “lock-in” style event, open to concert-goers on a first-come-first-served basis while feasting on sausage rolls.

The track was released on May 3 on Dutch independent record label Armada Music, where it was selected as the coveted “Hottest Record” by Danny Howard on BBC Radio 1’s Dance Party show.
