Ten Things Not To Miss at Masked Ball 2017

By | News | No Comments

 

We got the low down on ten things to miss at your own loss at The Summer Masked Ball.

1/ The Underworld. This concept has been years in the making and promises to blow minds. With areas representing reggae, disco, hip hop and boogie woogie all in different eras like a musical time machine.

2/ The Hurly Burly Bar. A new addition to the Masked Ball. The restaurant-come-performance space is a much-lauded venue at Glastonbury and mixes fine food, chilled ambience with risqué performances and also some great bands. Check them out here.

3/ Get in a hot tub. A lot of people missed this last year but a hot tub under the moonlight after (or before) the dancefloor antics is a fantastic experience. Booking in advance is advised. Check out Kernow Springs Eco Spa here.

4/ The Gramophone. Another new stage by the Masked Ball crew; a huge gramophone winding out house and techno ‘till the early hours

5/ Coney Island. The Masked Ball crew took this venue on tour last year, and it turned out to be a massive hit, so it’s back as part of The Underworld. For those who witnessed Fangz at the Halloween Masked Ball, you’ll know the score; resident trannies gyrating to pounding disco – don’t stop ‘till you get enough…

6/ The Last Tune. On Sunday, Dicky Trisco with Pete Herbert will be closing the deck, always a special moment..

7/ Felix Dickinson and Austin Auto (formerly Drums of Death). These guys have been playing fantastic sets for the Masked Ball for as long as we can remember, always laying down the most cutting-edge music.  They will be will be opening the proceedings on Friday to set the pace for the whole weekend; tickets are just £69 if you want to go from Friday ‘till Monday.

8/ Catching a Sunset. Get your team together and find a position for the amazing sunsets this venue is blessed with, in what must be one of the best position campsites in festival land.

9/ Psychemagik moment. The Psychemagik remix of Fleetwood Mac’s Everywhere has become The Masked Ball anthem – be there when they put it on, Headlining for the Ere Wax boys at end of the Sunday session – the place will go nuts.

10/ Check out the Enjoy Chillout Emporium. These guys have a great retro memorabilia hangout in Truro and have jumped on board to make a proper chillout area and lovely cocktail lounge on the top terrace.

We also want to tell you about 2017, May 26-28th! After our 10 year blowout back in May were proud to be turning back the pages to the early editions of The Ball and concentrating on the Devil in the Detail…smaller but more special…creating even more decadence for your dollar! Very limited early bird tickets are available now from just £49 (cheaper than 2017) and deposits starting at £19

We’ve also moved the event back to the Bank Holiday so you can really get stuck into the legendary Super Sunday and will be presenting something very new and exciting all we can say is….
