The Spring Masked Ball: Cornwall’s decedent dance festival granted 24 music licence

An event first organised by four friends back in 2009, which saw 200 ballers come together in a tent in Porthleven, the Masked Ball has grown into a bi-annual multi-layered wonderland of secret venues and twisted surprises, with 5000 attendees and a loyal following of hedonistic thrill seekers. Maintaining an intimate vibe despite its growth, it attracts throngs of costumed revellers, alongside the dance scene’s biggest talent.

Both the Spring and Halloween events have become renowned for their artistic creativity, imaginative site layouts and hedonism-inducing entertainment.

This year, for the first time, the Ball has a 24 hour music license, meaning it is one of the few festivals in the UK where you can truly dance from dusk 'til dawn.

The first line-up announcement reveals Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard, fresh from supporting LCD Soundsystem and Soulwax, will be manning the decks in the Grand Ball Room on Saturday night, alongside party heroes; Optimo, Fort Romeau and Paramid.

Also returning to the Ball’s traditional Porthleven home for 2018, is the hit venue The Underworld including the sleazy New York disco venue Coney Island, featuring party starters Horse Meat Disco, alongside Crimes of the Future, Jac the Disco and the legendary Italian Cosmic Disco pioneer Daniele Baldelli.

45 Live returns to the Tipi stage for a celebration of Hip-Hop, Funk and turntablist culture.

Masked Ball residents Durty Disco are back once again, perfect for those who like the darker vibes. Tom will be curating yet another selection of fresh and up & coming bass heavy selectors.

Masked Ball director Kelvin Batt said: “The last Spring ball was fantastic and we can’t wait to build on it.

“We’ve kept the ticket price down, while upping the production once again to create one of the most affordable and value for money festivals in the UK

“Where else can you get three days of quality partying for £85, which includes camping? 

The Masked Ball takes place on May 25-27 2018, at Beacon Crag, Porthleven, Cornwall.

Saturday night ball tickets are available for just £60, with a weekend ticket (from Friday to Monday), for £85. Both tickets include camping. Tickets are available from www.maskedball.net
