From 1700 on the 29th July 2017 to 1700 on the 30th July 2017, and a retinue of some of the finest racketeers will be descending upon Brighton’s Rose Hill tavern. The plan is to play continuously for 24 hours – all players committed to being in the same space for a full day.
While there’s nothing approximating instructions per se, there are a couple of ground rules – no looping and no cycling of members. Due to neighbourly considerations, the performance will be acoustic between 2300-1100 hours.
The venue will be open to all for the duration of the performance but note that access will be restricted after hours – anyone wanting to watch in the wee small hours will have to text a number so one of our highly-trained, crack security guards can let them in. This information will be here and on website closer to the time.
Hákarl has done a few of these long performances in the past – a 36 hour performance with bangthebore & affiliates in 2011 (documented here:http://
