RockNess – The Most Beautiful Festival in the World launches for 2013 with the promise of another outstanding weekend featuring the hottest names in rock, electro and indie.
This multi award winning festival, staged against the jaw dropping background of iconic Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands, takes place 7th -9th June.
Accorded the NME Awards ‘Best Small Festival’ for two consecutive years as well as the UK Festival Awards ‘Line Up of the Year’, the barnstorming Highland fling has hosted a roll call of behemoths over the years including Fatboy Slim, Biffy Clyro, Mumford & Sons, Daft Punk, Kasabian,The Chemical Brothers, Deadmau5 and Paolo Nutini.
A host of eclectic arenas add a unique and much loved signature to RockNess including a comedy proposition previously headlined by funnymen superstars Tim Minchin and Kevin Bridges, as well as Howard’s End, a traditional character pub with special guest landlord Howard Marks. Electronic powerhouses Soma Records and Sub Club, two of the country’s most prolific exponents of dance, assume control of the Arcadia Afterburner extravaganza and Sub Club Sound System respectively. Further enhancing the RockNess experience is an exceptional array of quality food and drink offerings, a luxury VIP area with all the home-from-home mod cons for the most discerning festival glamper, and the pièce de résistance…the undisputed best view of any festival in the world!
