Gather your glad-rags, Ghouls and assemble squadrons of Fools, friends, and join Rumpus and the London Games Festival for a night of fantastical freakery, music and revelry.

Be afraid, be very very afraid, for SeaSylph Games returns with an immersive live game stretching throughout the entire venue featuring YOU versus YOU!  Will you join the Fools, are you a Ghoul, or are you a…. bloody hell, is that a Dragon?! With a night of quests, plots, schemes, and hoarding you must decide whom to follow. Will you help the Lord of Misrule flummox the Cannibal Queen of the Ghouls? Or will you take her side instead? Or maybe your tastes are more sparkly, and... Scaly. Whosever side you choose, dress according to the team you follow: Fools, Ghouls or Jewels!


Main Room

Buffo's Wake - a twelve-legged beast hatched in the murky backwater of Brighton, UK. Armed with accordions, violins and a bucket full of gusto they waltz, tango, mosh and kolo their way into our hearts.

Ushti Baba - Riotous Gypsy-Folk with hypnotic trans-European melodies and Jungle.

Clan Dextine - a journey through bass and time.

Paradise Moist - living it up large and lively.

Room 2 - Megabeat Monster Takeover by Tremor Sound

Father Funk - Undoubtedly the Father of 21st century bass driven funk. He has created such a recognisable brand, whether it's his head banging energy, his unique party driven sound or his incredible moustache you know when the Father is behind the decks!

Rogue One - Rogue one has been making waves in the drum and bass scene recently and has certainly made a name for himself across the country.

Stitch - Some of the heaviest and filthy tracks are laid down by the one they call Stitch. He'll drop the bass so hard you'll probably need stitches after he's finished with you.

Tuxedo Junction - Swing... Shaken, not stirred. This cheeky duo are the crazy cocktail you get when you take jazz and inject it with an overly generous helping of bass.

Bear Twists feat Twitchee & Trafic MC - Bristol's answer to Too Many T's. Cheeky and energetic hip hop with intelligent fun lyrics and a level of production that will have you hooked from the start!

Aaron K - A Hot Cakes favourite, his style of breaks will have your booty shaking all night long!

Tremor Allstars - It wouldn't be a Tremor takeover without the Allstars making an appearance. They'll give any headline DJ a run for their money taking you on the most joyous of journeys through almost every realm in the world of bass.

Trafic MC - One of the hottest up and coming MCs of 2018. He's hosted for the likes of Calyx & Teebee and Noisia so if you're not skankin' please continue walkin'!
Twitchee - If you're a seagull lover then step aside as he'll wibbidy all over your wotsit! A true killer on the mic and one of the most entertaining free-stylers Bristol has to offer.
Emcee Ellis D - Bring your extinguishers, this host is absolute fire on mic duties.

Room 3

Sambattalion - winner of "the band most likely to withstand high winds".

Lead Shot Hazard - Fast-paced, horn-driven punk.

DJ Jamie Moon - keeping your hips and lips twitching, the best dressed DJ in town!

DJ Bop Gun - funk to the maximum groove.

NeoPink: NeoDroid - Pulsating African rhythm infused electronic dancescape. There may be DROiDs.

Room 4 - Balkan Roast Room

Blues Mammoth - Music that's a whole soul deep.
Unknown Era - Music for Misfits, the forgotten, the misunderstood.
Forest of Fools - "Jump-up Folk"
Jorges Hot Club - smokin' hot gypsy jazz!
Balkan Beat Bar - What it says on the tin. All of the Balkan. All of the beats. No compromise.
