Speaking about today’s announcement, festival director Jim King said: "We are really pleased to be announcing these acts for Rock Ness. There is the return of one or two friendly faces who still want to be part of the fun and games and then a lot of new acts who haven’t been to the festival before which is really exciting.

"I think we have real quality across all genres that is making this year's line-up really interesting and is going to give our customers a magical festival weekend."
