Masked Ball: One Of Europe’s Most Infamous Boutique Festivals Is Back This Spring

Recently referred to by the Guardian as one of the best festivals in Europe, Masked Ball is back this Spring with a 24-hour licence.

The Masked Ball returns to the cliffs of Cornwall; this time the party will last all day and all night with a brand new 24-hour license.

It’s no secret that we think The Masked Ball in Cornwall is one of the best festivals in Europe; perhaps the world. We’re not the only ones, The Guardian recently listed the festival among their top 10 list – the only one in the UK.

Now with the addition of The Underworld and a 24-hour alcohol & music license, things are set to be elevated beyond expectations; think Block 9 or Shangri La at Glastonbury, with a dose of Cornwall’s crazy party animals. That’s a recipe for one hell of a party! Check out our interview with Kelvin Batt & Alec Short about the underworld by clicking here.

The line up is looking pretty packed this year; Joe Goddard (Hot Chip), Horse Meat Disco, Fort Romeau, Optimo, Princeless (a remarkable Prince tribute act) and Daft as Punk (who are recreating the pyramid stage & production from the “Alive” tour).

The production is what brings The Masked Ball to life; from stages that resemble giant Gramaphones to Samurai Temples and Alice in Wonderland, The Masked Ball is a spectacle. Crawling through tunnels to get to some of the stages is also a lot of fun!

Then there’s the sound & lighting, some of the best in the business with thumping sound systems and lighting that will now push through the night.

Tickets and further information are available from their official website.
