Something for the trip North...

It's almost time...

RockNess has established itself as Scotland's wildest party, a place where inhibitions can be blasted into space. Set by the banks of the world famous loch, the stunning valley provides a wonderful backdrop for the weekend's events.

Expanding year on year, this summer's instalment promises to be the biggest yet. Rockness has confirmed three special headline performances from three very different acts.

Opening the festival The Chemical Brothers will bring the noise, focussing over a decade of experience on the Dores crowd. Following this, Kasabian will unveil material from their as yet unheard fourth album.

Closing the festival, Paisley's favourite son Paolo Nutini will get the party started as the RockNess crowd go out in style.

Yet this is only a small flavour of what RockNess can offer. The smaller stages are teeming with talent, moving from indie to dance in just a few steps. Gathering together some well known (and not so well known) acts ClashMusic have crafted the perfect mixtape for that long journey North.

Opening with Sub Pop signings Niki & The Dove you can hear everything from blues rockers Dog Is Dead to fast rising Manchester producer D/R/U/G/S. Two Door Cinema Club have risen to the main stage, while Sons & Daughters will be unveiling material from their stark new album.
