Example and Basement Jaxx will headline the weekend festival deep in the Scottish highlands. The Vaccines, Madness, Bombay Bicycle Club and Ben Howard will also perform over the weekend festival, which takes place along the banks of the loch, at Dores, Loch Ness, Scotland from 7-9 June 2013.

Ellie Goulding, The Maccabees, Jessie Ware, Camera Obscura and Newton Faulkner have also been announced for the festival, which first took place in 2006. The third and final headline act is still to be announced.

Festival Director Jim King said ”I’m delighted to announce the first names we’re bringing to the party at Loch Ness this summer. We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to bring you an eclectic line up of the highest calibre acts for which RockNess is synonymous. To top it all, we’ve reduced the price of our Weekend Camping tickets by £20 so you can join us at RockNess for less than most other major UK festivals at an amazing value price of £139. We’ve introduced a new Inverness Discount ticket, which is inclusive of all fees to support local businesses in Inverness if you buy over the counter; more details can be found on our website.

If you haven’t joined us at RockNess before, I promise you it is the best way to kickstart your summer, a completely electric atmosphere, partying in what is probably the most beautiful festival site in the world. If you have been to RockNess before then as always I’d like to thank you for your continued support in making it the best festival in Scotland.  We’ve got many more bands and DJ’s still to announce, plus another very special headliner, so stay tuned…!”
