Kostume Kult Presents

HORNED BALL 2017

~ Barbarian Horde ~

The Empire is falling as the “others” advance – crossing borders, climbing walls and thundering
across the open plains. Do you fight or flee?¬† Feast or fornicate? This Year’s Horned Ball
channels the brutal beauty of all Barbarians of fact or fantasy. Be you Mongolian, Visigoth or Cimmerian,
the Empire has grown corrupt and stupid — and is ready to be taken…

ABOUT

Horned Ball is the longest running event of the Kostume Kult arts collective (Costume Cultural Society),
a non-profit arts org supporting costume art, street theater and mad fun while bringing wonderful people together.
Horned Ball is one of Kostume Kult’s big-3, official Burning Man camp fundraisers also including Black & Light
Ball (coming 5.20.17) and Freakkshow (mid-late July). With the three events vibed Geek, Chic and Freak, respectively,
HB is always a fantastical, geeky spring bacchanalia with the animals shaking off winter slumber with itchy horns and the urge to dance!
