Crystal Castles, Booka Shade and more

RockNess is almost upon.

The Scots know how to party, and RockNess is the wildest party North of the border. The World Cup might be kicking off without them, but Caledonia is set to reverberate to some cutting edge sounds.

Located in a wonderful Highland valley by the banks of Loch Ness, RockNess has grown to become one of the most sought after events in Britain. Clash will be there, hosting an arena all weekend starring Pendulum, Booka Shade, Aphex Twin and more.

Of course, there's a lot more to RockNess than that. The festival mixes dance and rock, with New York indie kingpins The Strokes set to close the event on Sunday night (June 13th). Only their second British show in four years, the band have taken time out of recording their new album to take part.

Elsewhere, a host of newcomers are set to perform with ClashMusic recently running through five of the best. Click HERE to read our guide!
