Will there be a pre-party for Arabia Maskerad?
Damn right there will. Like last year, the pre-party will be held in TOKYO Lounge (Arabia campus, basement floor, right next to Kipsari) before the actual Maskerad. Everybody is welcomed. The program will contain good company and fixing the costumes together. Bring your own drinks, the house offers face paints and glitter. The Facebook event is here.

MAFFE aka Media Art & Film Festival, will be held the day before Arabia Maskerad in Kino Sheryl. There will be media art and films (including The Illusionist) – For free! There won’t be a better way to get your Maskerad mood on, so we warmly recommend you all to come. More detailed information can be found in MAFFE’s Facebook event.

Who the hell is Teryl Shockyo?
Teryl Shockyo is nasty and fucked up cousin of TOKYOs patron saint Sheryl Tokyo. Teryl plays on the evil side and loves to show up just to mess everything up completely. Like many other things in these times, also Teryl is a Grand Illusion.

When does each dj play? What time will the doors open? And most importantly, how much the beer costs in Kaivohuone?
Do not worry, honey. Breathe in, breathe out, and please be patient. More detailed information, for example, “about everything” comes during the next week.
