Rumpus strides forth into it’s fifth year of bringing you the very best people, the very music, and the very best times! To celebrate our continuing mission of running London’s best party, we’re offering up a celebration to every creature that has come before us – a moment to honour not only our ancestors and the dead, but also those Creatures that decided not to stay quite so dead!
Joining us for this out-of-the-grave spectacular are some of the finest acts and crews to have ever seen the light white and decided to head back home. We are very very proud to welcome the Old Saw Mill Parties crew, who have been labouring away in their Sheffield hideout, building an interactive theatrical set for their Raveyard room!
Musically, we’ve got giants in out midsts: the unstoppable beats of the London Afrobeat Collective will be unleashed; Tantz are crossing the country to grace our stage, the mighty Kitten and The Hip are coming down, and we’re pants-wettingly excited about Mariachi El Pinche Gringo!
Rumpus is back. And only a silver bullet through the brain can stop it.
