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 - including The Filthy Spectacula and Tankus the Henge! - DJs and walkabout performers to keep you kicking til the wee hours in the southernmost heart of our fair city.

Invite the merry crowds here! 




Rumpus Room

The Filthy Spectacula - Join these unique as f**k twisted gypsy punks adrift upon the seas of stupidity bringing you revved up pirate shanties, ska, punk, dark cabaret, southern gothic, musichall and did we mention a wee bit of drunkness?

Tankus the Henge - Tankus renowned for warming the hearts of all who cross them this six-piece powerhouse of a band bring to life before you the magic of old time Fairgrounds, modern day Circus cascading down a sound that is at once uplifting and wild, dark and heartfelt.

Prinz Friedrich - Europe’s only coherent response to the likes of Tom Waits & other Economic disasters. Forged on the Underground scenes of Britain & Europe, these dudes have seen and done some weird shit already. Please call the Federal Republic of Germany on +49 30 22732152 for song requests.

Brother Bear - Straight from the Old Saw Mill Garden Party, this is the cuddliest DJ with the fiercest beats!


Hot Cakes Room

Hot Cakes and Rumpus have been throwing parties together since before there was a Hot Cakes and before there was a Rumpus. When we need Bass, we go to the folks who have it in bin-fulls.

A Skillz - Dropping broken beats like they’re clear cut diamonds this man has got ALL the Skillz!

Elite Force - Let the force go Ka-Boom! If anyone was going to deliver a marvellous mash-up of techno, electro & breaks it would be this illustrious music man!

Jurassik - Rumpus loves Jurassik! Before we believed in Rumpus, he believed in us. Serving up breaks like no one else can, we can’t wait for him to get behind the decks again!

Final Conflict Takes you on a sonic journey through underground dance music with an impeccably natural flair.

Charlie Chuckles - Foot stomping, hip shaking and wild arm waving are just the starters when this man lays down a musical feast.

It was a fun night as always - lovely people and great outfits. But I am looking forward to Rumpus returning to Islington Metal Works, which is a much better venue and significantly easier to get to and home from! Also the music wasn't really my cup of tea but the company made up for it 😊 X Cat visited Brixton Jamm on 09 Jul 2016

The Dress Code for this one was so unclear. Ended up with half people not dressed up and rest extravagantly dressed! Music in room 1 was soon good though despite the sweaty conditions! Next time I suggest the dress code is more endorsed. Will just make the party even better! Erika visited Brixton Jamm on 09 Jul 2016

Totally agree with the below. A great crowd, with some people really having made an effort. But not many. Maybe compulsory dress up would be a good idea. However the music was fun and varied but , the event itself really didn't live up to the Rumpus name. Limited music. Pricey tickets considering the limited scale of the Rumpus offering. We got a lot of people to come because of previous rumpus' we had attended. You could have done a lot better Rumpus! Not many of our large crowd I think will come out again because of the experience. It wasnt as awesome and diverse as usual. Just a regular night out at a good venue. Still had a good night out though ;) Sam visited Brixton Jamm on 09 Jul 2016

Great bands and music but could have been more of a 'spectacle'. They could also have done a theme like usual which would have been fun - although everyone had made a great effort anyway Jessica visited Brixton Jamm on 09 Jul 2016

As said below, a great crowd, with some people really having made an effort. However, the event itself really didn't live up to the Rumpus name. Crowded venue. Limited music. Pricey tickets considering the limited scale of the Rumpus offering. You could have done a lot better Rumpus! Anthony visited Brixton Jamm on 09 Jul 2016

Really enjoyed the boat sunset pre-party to get to know the friendly people at Rumpus. Party after was fun but not as much attention to the art as usual, maybe limited by the 2 rooms whereas usually there are more... so not as unique as a usual Rumpus, more like a normal night out with the lovely people of a normal Rumpus.

Great crowd and costumes as usual, but the venue didn't have enough rooms, variety or decor. Still a great night, although it didn't have the Rumpus atmosphere we're used to. Also tickets were pricey seeing as much less effort went into the whole event, compared to other Rumpuses. Ella visited Brixton Jamm on 09 Jul 2016

Awesome. Great vibe from the audience. Venue wasn't as good as other rumpuses, and the theme was difficult to get a handle on, but was such a good crowd it didn't matter! Michael visited Brixton Jamm on 09 Jul 2016

An amazing night at a cool venue. The people there are just fun and the performances were excellent. One of the best nights I've had in ages. I'll definitely be going again ! David visited Brixton Jamm on 09 Jul 2016

I attended Rumpus with my friends after hearing them rave about previous events. This was nothing like their other events and was definitely not worth £18 (the final price of the tickets) The event was very misleading as it pushed a boat party and did not make it obvious that this would be a further £22. While I had a good time it was purely down to the friends I attended with. katherine visited Brixton Jamm on 09 Jul 2016
