The line-up is a mix of live acts and DJs performing in a number of small microvenues, with highlights of Psychemagik, Scott Fraser and Joe Hart's revered and long-running Body Hammer, a showcase of Andy Bainbridge & Chris stoker's 'Not An Animal' label, Scotland's talented Austin Ato (previously known as Drums of Death), industry veteran Felix Dickinson, the "saviour of Australian dance music" Francis Inferno Orchestra, Norwegian house don Telephones, Japan's rising star Powder, Bawrut, DJ Format, and more.
Kelvin Batt, Director of Masked Ball Limited says "For me, the Masked Ball is a proper party in a unique location, nothing more, nothing less. The event began as a party by friends for friends, and we're proud to say we cut the ledges that the tents sit on out of the cliff ourselves, I think that attitude really shines through today. We're lucky the crowd makes it, everyone's there for one reason: to have a good time, You wont see anybody videoing or track ID-ing despite the talent on offer, and I think we're quite unique/lucky for a dance event in that respect."
