Cirque du Freakz was developed in Los Angeles, CA in 2013 to breath new life into the underground/electronic scene. With a vision to integrate the emerging EDM music, with Live bands, Burlesque, Circus arts, and a touch of Vaudeville! We have created a playground for your soul… an escape from reality, a place to let your freak flag fly! SO COME EXPERIENCE THE UNEXPECTED at the next Cirque Du Freakz.


Rumpus, by definition, does in fact bring the noise – and the bodies – to dance floors and music festivals around the globe. Drumming since the age of 12 and growing up playing in punk rock bands, Rumpus has since evolved into a full-time touring DJ/Drummer and producer of high vibe, funky house music.

Rumpus’ live drumming blended with a finely tuned DJ palette, serves up an irresistible feast for attuned music lovers and funky festival freaks alike. His visually captivating high-energy live show fuses his signature house sound with elements of other genres such as hip hop and experimental future bass. With releases on Westwood Recordings & Australia’s ‘Sweat it Out’ Club Sweat label, the Rumpus sound has been described as “what you get if funk house and bass house had a kid”. 2019 is on course to be another major year with lots of new music, a packed tour schedule, and a few other surprises up his sleeve.

Fusing two fresh-off-the-mountain electronic music addicts, Tim and Dave together create 12 feet and 350 lbs of turbo-funk-boosted, snowsuit-donning man flesh. Hailing from the world famous ski town of Whistler, this dynamic duo loves shredding fresh power almost as much as they love smashing out hit records in the studio.

Producing & performing together since 2010, they are like savage yetis feeding off of each other during their high energy live shows (which often feature snow machines & loud retro ski gear) while they blast through genres playing everything funky from bassline house to black-diamond twerk.

TV Broken 3rd Eye Open is an eclectic and versatile seven-piece band that fuses together a multitude of musical styles from across the world into a psychedelic explosion of sound. Equipped with didgeridoos, sitars, guitars, world percussion, keys, synthesizers,  drums, bass, flutes, harmonicas, banjos, and the kitchen sink; it is a musical ensemble like no other. The band draws inspiration from a myriad of musical genres such as afro funk, jazz, psychedelic groove, Indian, folk, blues, and even spaghetti western circus cabaret. Though the band’s sound is unique in its own right, the TV Broken 3rd Eye Open experience also has a significant visual component. The TV Towers 2.0 (debuting in April 2019) is a way to express the way the band sees their music through visual art. Stunning visuals of sacred geometry and psychedelic imagery are then projected on to the stage to combine with the music to make for a truly unique experience.

Grooving and playing with so many different styles and sound textures has allowed the band to continuously grow from a style perspective. Just as their music has grown, so too has their festival presence. Having played at festivals such as Electric Forrest, Symbiosis, Lightning in a Bottle and Lucidity; TV Broken 3rd Eye Open’s exposure is on the rise. The band’s recent collaboration with visual prodigy  Pickles Visuals and Stranger Liquids has certainly solidified TV Broken 3rd Eye Open’s status as a must-see band on any festival line-up.

In addition, members of the band can facilitate workshops, lectures, and classes of different kinds to enrich any festival experience. For example, one of the members is a certified and licensed sound therapist who can provide personal/group healings, workshops, meditations and interactive experiences involving sound healing. TV Broken 3rd Eye Open’s current line-up consists of Adrian Johnson (global instrument specialist), Nathan Harvey (drums), Jasym Ellis (guitar, synth), Travis Soto (Bass), Alex Mello (Keys), Roberto Rodriguez (Percussion), and Pickle/Stranger Liquids (visuals).
