This all-night event will feature a dozen different areas, all curated and themed around the cult vampire film 'The Lost Boys.'
For 2015, the team will transform the venue into an underground Halloween lair dedicated to '80s vamps, 'The Lost Boys’ with a dress code of fantastical horror and an immersive film set of illusory horror.
Clubbers will be transported into a world of horror with rip-roaring fun to be had at every turn. In addition to showcasing some of today's most renowned dance music artists from all over the world, the Halloween Ball will create a playground of carnival rides and costumed performers for thousands clubbers. A creative team has developed twelve arenas of gore-infested mayhem, brain busting anthems and much more.
Wandering through theme park at night, party-goers will stumble across 12 unpredictable nano-venues, eccentric humour and epic raves with a soundtrack of stellar drum and bass, New York disco and terrifying techno.
The event marks nine years Masked Ball series with a huge 10th anniversary planned for next year. Year on year the events become and more creative.
