Based in Brighton, East Sussex, the DISCOBUG/BUGBAR is the brainchild of entrepreneur Justin Rushmore, an idea conceived through a long love affair of cool VW camper vans, festivals and great music. Justin’s background has always revolved around music, & hospitality. Having collectively set up and run the infamous BAR VINYL/VINYL ADDICTION in Camden London, (the first dj bar of it’s kind in the UK with a café and a record store in the basement), he went on to set up the award winning independent record label FINGER LICKIN’ RECORDS, home to the likes of The Plump DJs, A Skillz and Krafty Kuts. As a DJ Justin has travelled the globe performing at most major clubs and festivals, a career spanning decades. Now combining his experience in business and music we have the awesome DISCOBUG and BUGBAR events company.
The DISCOBUG is a unique, chic and a bespoke VW campervan conversion. It is in fact a caravan trailer with the body made of fiberglass so it’s lightweight – no engine making it safer and easier to fit into venues. It is fully kitted out with the very best in sonic sound, a hydraulic lifting roof (James Bond style) mirror balls, lasers and state of the art LED lights. Originally a vibrant pink and blue unit named ‘Shiva’ the DISCOBUG has undergone a cosmetic makeover to up the ‘wow factor to level 10. It measures 4.5m long (3.5m without the tow bar), 1.75m wide and 1.9m high with the roof down, upto 3.4m with the hydraulic roof fully raised. It weighs 800kilos.
