OTHER FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS
Warrington Hudlin (1/2 of the Huldlin Brothers) headlines the festival as the G.O.A.T. Known for his love of all things MetaVerse, festival director and founder CR Capers worked with two amazing Horizon World builders to create a seven world universe dedicated to Hudlin. The universe is the ultimate Immersive HOUSE PARTY movie experience, putting the player in the plot of the 90’s classic movie.
The experience launches with appearances from the original cast, live DJ’s and more.
