For 1 night, across 7 rooms and 8 phantasmagorical hours, Rumpus is back bursting to the brim with live bands, DJs playing everything from turbo gypsy to Drum’n’Bass, art exhibitions, immersive theatre and walkabout performers.

It is with great excitement and no little trepidation that we lay before you this opulent opportunity for outlandish, hypnogogic and iconographic imaginings
Grab your gumption, take a long swig of marvellous medicine and prepare to perambulate through the fields of surreal.
What’s more, more is more!
