We are just an eentsy, teentsy tiny bit excited about summertime! We’re sure you are too! And to celebrate this most glorious of seasons and our ickle bit of ecstatic sentiment we have decided to throw a teeny weeny Summer Bash! As fields and festivals lure many away we beg the question ‘Why shouldn’t those left behind have a chance to play?’ Well we’re gonna!
Prior to the main event we’ll be teaming up with our long time partners in good time crime Hotcakes for a summer boat party (headlined and curated by the Burning Man legend Simon Shackleton, AKA Elite Force, to get you bouncing. There’ll be a full Rumpus takeover twist on the upper deck, featuring Brother Bear and Mike Freear.
Once we have pirated and pillaged enough upon the high seas we shall parade our merry way to Brixton Jamm.
Here you’ll find two rooms set to bursting in typical Rumpus style with some of the best bands and DJs – including A Skillz, Elite Force, Tankus the Henge, The Filthy Spectacular! – DJs and walkabout performers to keep you kicking till the wee hours in the southernmost heart of our fair city.
