HORNED BALL 2021 THEME & HYBRID FORMAT Every spring, Kostume Kult's NYC community comes out of hibernation - in horns, ready to dance. The 17th annual Horned Ball, "Rise of the PhoenOx" merges the legend of the Phoenix, rising from 2020's ashes, with the Lunar Year of the Ox -- blending Greek and Chinese legends with Horns and Feathers! Usually a grand, absurdist costumed gala, this year covid restrictions prompted innovation with a renegade event in a wooded area of Brooklyn's Prospect Park, with multiple DJ rigs and hundreds of people braving potential rain (which never came!). On 5.8, HB went from 4pm-1am with the after-party (also in Prospect Park) going til 5am. Also social-casted on the new, interactive, burner-developed, Backroom Social Club platform (https://backroom.social/) while reworking event footage for VR Horned Ball on 5.21. The PhoenOx Rises Again this Friday!

ABOUT Horned Ball is Kostume Kult’s longest running event - an absurdist spring bacchanal and one of Kostume Kult's three annual Burning Man project fundraisers. HB is our most fantastical (geek) oriented event followed by our (chic) Black & Light Ball in June and our (freaky) circus themed Freakshow in July. 2021 is Horned Ball #17 where, with this year’s homage to Oxen/ Bulls, HB2021 happened during Taurus vs its traditional date in Aries. All Horns! For more on Kostume Kult (and the full story on what happened at the 5.8 event) go to: https://www.kostumekult.com/
