“It all started with music, of course. I always stood for an open minded and fun definition of house music. It fills me with joy to host a party that exceeds a simple Claptone DJ-set, a night where I can bring along other artists that I love into venues that have a special vibe, feel, and decor to fit the music. The stunning dancers, breathtaking performers and special surprises that I have in store … I love the sense of mystery that surrounds ‘The Masquerade’. Take the chance to dive into a world where you can be whoever you want to be: A world without boundaries and without judgment. I can’t wait for you to join us dancing under the big golden mask. House is a feeling and ‘The Masquerade’ is its home.”
