Rumpus: Baroque and Roll

☆★☆ Are you ready to Baroque and Roll?  ☆★☆

The year is 1734 and all the court has gathered for the Grand Ball at the lavish Electrowerkz Hall. Every duke, every princess, every noble creature of the realm is gathered, chalices in hand, when suddenly a raucous troupe of leather-clad, spike-adorned bikers revved their bikes past the carriages and  the gathered gentry to erupt into the ballroom, guitars strapped to their backs.  

Suddenly the melodic sounds of the harpsichord is joined by the cacophonous roar of reverb pedals and crash of cymbals. The unmistakable sound of rock and roll shake the very foundations of glorious palace.  

The crowd goes wild. 

Will you be present to see these two worlds collide?  

Rocking their way into the Main Room we have the intoxicating sounds of Rum Buffalo, joined by Rumpus’ most favourite band ever: Mariachi El Pinche Gringo.  

Waltz, promenade and saunter your way through seven rooms over three floors packed to the brim with DJs, VJs, bands, artists and performers. Mingle with the members of the court and rock the night away with all the madness, all the mayhem, and all the magic that’s made Rumpus London’s favourite indoor festival.
