We still have tickets available on the Door! Come down early to get in, and get dressed up for a discount on the door price!
Venue address: 33 1/3 Commercial Rd, just round the corner from Aldgate East Tube. That's Commercial ROAD, not Commercial Street.
Sick of the winter blues? Tired of the cold and the rain? So are we! In fact, we’re so sick of them that we’ve having Carnival early!
Join Rumpus as we dust ourselves off, pick ourselves up, and start the year’s partying in style. We’re bringing you another filled-to-the-brim indoor festival’s worth of goodness, squeezed and crammed into one night.
We've got our usual mix of exceptional live music, featuring the master of Teacore Professor Elemental, Molotov Jukebox and Roadkill Cafe, more top shelf Djs than you could shake a stick at, and we're even bringing you the Calypso Stageshow.
Our friends from the Pandemonium Circus have been allowed
out for the night, and they’ll be bringing you Jungle, Ragga and mash ups so
grimey that you’ll want a scrubbing, as well as some proper twisted acts and
Meno.tv are back again, mixing up the finest medicine for your eyes and pouring it straight from the cinema screen into your head. Blondie’s curating another art exhibition, and for that touch of degenerate fin-de-siècle ambience, the Clapton Metropole will be on hand to provide you with the very choicest hand-made cocktails.
We’ve had ourselves some words with the venue, and they’ve built more toilets and there’ll be four bars running on the night, so no more queuing when you should be dancing.
We've got 200 fewer tickets this time, so they will sell out. Hurry hurry!
