Rockness is an Annual festival of top class music held at Dores on the shores of Loch Ness,

Scotland on Saturday 9/Sunday 10 June 2007.

Rock Ness 2007 follows the monster sell-out success of last year's inaugural one-day event which saw 25,000 music fans descend on The Highlands for the Midsummer's Day celebration headlined by Fatboy Slim. Special guests included Mylo and Carl Cox. Officials and locals hailed the first year a huge success, with an independent audit estimating the local economy was boosted by over £7 million.

The Chemical Brothers who will headline the outdoor 'Xfm Stage' this year on the Saturday, are one of the biggest acts in dance music today with a Grammy to their name and over 8 million albums sales worldwide.

Daft Punk, who headline the 10,000-capacity indoor arena on the Sunday, are one of the most influential dance acts of the nineties. This is their first performance in Scotland in over ten years and is certain to be huge.

Groove Armada will play a full live set on the Saturday which is sure to include many of their electro-rock anthems. Their appearance at Rock Ness is hot on the heels of the May release of their much-anticipated new album Soundboy Rock.

Two smaller boutique stages will add to this year's musical diversity. The finest unsigned breakthrough music talent will be showcased across the weekend via the GoNORTH Xposure stage. Over 60 unsigned bands and artists will perform at GoNORTH, which this year is being held in Inverness two days prior to Rock Ness. The most promising acts will be given the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform across two days at the festival. The stars of today playing with the stars of tomorrow!

Radio Soulwax will host a boutique stage on Saturday featuring 2manydj's. And as a further exciting development, Rob da Bank the legendary Radio 1 DJ and curator of the award-winning Bestival will be bringing, for the first time ever to Scotland, his inimitable Sunday Best extravaganza.

A dedicated campsite for 25,000 fans will be in place. Situated adjacent to the main site, festival goers can soak up the beauty of the ancient surrounding forests as well as enjoying panoramic views of mystical Loch Ness. Camping tickets cost £15.00 (subject to booking fee). The campsite will host a wide range of food concessions and a round-the-clock café.

Also hot news is the Rock Ness luxury campsite-with-a-difference.. The more discerning camper can this year take advantage of the comfort of their own luxury beach hut or 10-person double decker bus hotel complete with hospitality marquee! Further information can be found at
