Organisers have also unveiled The RockNess Express – a specially chartered train that will depart from London Euston, picking up festival goers at Birmingham, Derby, York and Newcastle, before delivering the festival-goers to their final destination of Inverness.?
Festival bosses say: “Expect a full scale shindig on board The RockNess Express with top music, surprise guests, the best of Scottish food, cocktails, games and goody bags. What’s more, RockNess Expressers will get priority access on site before anyone else arrives and a private party!
“If that isn’t enough, the unbeatable price of £225 is sure to impress. For this, revellers will get a VIP weekend ticket with camping PLUS travel from any of these UK destinations (only £16 more than a VIP ticket on its own), and be boosting their green credentials while having heaps of fun at the same time.

Speaking about being included Biffy Clyro said: ‘‘We are thrilled to be returning to RockNess in June, and this time we’ll be headlining. The location is amazing and the enthusiastic crowd made for a memorable experience in 2009, so we’re counting down the days until our return in 2012.”
More acts are expected in the coming months.
