Be afraid, very afraid: Masked Ball returns to the Lizard
12:00pm Saturday 28th September 2013 in News
BE afraid; be very afraid – the demon awakening of the UK party scene has been summoned and if you go down in the woods you’ll be in for beastly surprise.
Following on from the success of the summer Masked Ball, the team is back with a Halloween bash to scare the pants off anyone brave enough to venture to The Lizard, on Saturday, October 26.
The line up of the Halloween Masked Ball features frightfully freaky sets from Grandmaster Flash, Phil Hartnoll, Sister Bliss, Drums of Death, Daft Funk, Greg Wilson, Electric Rescue and John Askew - alongside 40 of the best DJs in the South West.
Surely enough sounds to shake rhythm from the bones of the most decrepit of corpses… Keeping in with the Masked Ball tradition of high production values, the rave to the grave takes place over nine themed areas.
First up is Carni-hell, the unfair fairground where you won’t need to scream if you wanna go faster. This is a complete fairground in the woods with a |horror maze curated by Kernow Scare Attractions. Expect a belter helterskelter, a ghostrain, a spooky funhouse, a strongman |striker, stalls, a coconut shy and a palm reading experience.
There’s the Barn Of Horror, complete with a mind-bending visual show, a Rave Yard complete with a crashed UFO, Death by Disco, Voodoo Swamp, Hell’s Kitchen and The Cardinal Sin Village. The Chapel of Rest offers a respite from the madness |offering an area of sofas and comfy chairs.
Each arena will have its own surprises and shocks in store, augmented by quality sound systems and amazing visuals.
The creepy party starts on Friday, October 25, with Slamboree Sound System, a silent disco and a |screening of The Exorcist, in the woods.
Another new |addition is a range of onsite accommodation, including newly constructed hobbit huts.
The lockable hobbit huts sleep two and have heating, furniture and mains power and form part of a hobbit village.
The village will have 24-hour security, hot showers and access to exclusive VIP areas. There are also bell tents and tipis for hire, also with heating and electricity.
The Halloween Masked Ball takes place at Rosuick Camel Farm, Helston, The Lizard, Cornwall, and runs from Friday, October 25 (from 6pm to midnight) to Saturday, October 26 (6pm to 6am.) The Masked Ball is an |independent festival production company that started with its first Masked Ball in 2007.
It now runs three events a year and receives no sponsorship or public finance. Each year, The Masked Ball donates upwards of £5,000 to local charities and good causes.
