Theme Camps Performances Art Workshops DJ


Theme Camps

Theme camps take full ownership for programming a room or an outdoor space at Decom. You’ll get to decorate and set-up the space, including sound and lighting (the venue will provide basic set-up for most rooms), and schedule your own activities, performances, workshops or DJs. 

Previously we’ve had a techno dance club vibes room, a cabaret lounge, a psychedelic party room, a chillout space – anything goes!

Apply Now



Come and perform at Decom! This can be a performance on a stage, outside, or you can roam the entire venue – let us know what you have in mind. 

Past performances have included: fire, aerial, live music, burlesque, comedy, and more – it’s up to you! 

You don’t need to be a pro: this is a burn, and your chance to experiment, do something new, and get cheered on by a super friendly audience. Seriously, we’re mad supportive.

Apply Now



Bring your art and help us turn our new venue into a magical space! Your art can be an installation, a sculpture, visual art or projections. It can be interactive, it can be big, it can be small, it can be transparent – it’s up to you!

Apply Now



Workshops typically take place in an existing space for a shorter period of time. 

The key thing that makes it different to a theme camp is that you’re not running decor for a space, or  programming for anyone else’s act – you’re just hosting your workshop!

From making creepy masks to teaching others how to clown, from partner massages to shibari, from authentic relating to a silly dance workshop – anything goes!

Apply Now



There’s 2 options for DJing at London Decompression: you can join forces with a theme camp, who are in charge of the programme for their space, or you can apply below.

Our DJ curators will select a small number of DJs to play the room curated by the London Decom Entertainment team. 

We will also pair up theme camps who have capacity in their schedule with DJs who fit their vibe.
