Those who appeared at the sixty fourth Scaledown were (in no particular order):

Ian McLachlan - Two words sum up this act quite effectively: euphonium improvisation.

Same Actor - Chris Cook, AKA Same Actor makes a welcome return to scaledown bringing with him his superb improvisational skills, beautiful sitar playing, and a mixture of electrickery.

Joey Herzfeld - having previously performed at Scaledown with Hooverville Joey now returns in a solo incarnation with little more than his accordion and voice.

Your New Friend - Simon Kobayashi [guitar & vocals] and Alex Carter [guitar] make up Your New Friend, and hope to become best buddies with you via their intricate, cyclical, goosebump-inducing acoustic racket.

Belle Phoenix - Originally from Sydney, Australia but currently residing in North London, Belle is looking to bring her sexy, dark, seductive, gothic leaning rock n’ roll spectacula (sic) to our humble little musical abode... dare we invite her in?

Karolina - A charming young lady whose shy and soft spoken character belies a powerful and talented singer with a lovely voice, accompanying herself on piano. A hidden gem, uncovered at Scaledown, just for you...
