RockNess organisers have said that the headliners booked for 2011 will 'ensure a massive party descends' on the festival.
Head honcho Jim King is yet to name the act but ticket-holders can expect to big names to follow in the footstep of Fatboy Slim, Leftfield and The Strokes who performed last year.
“Some of you guys are following me on Twitter (@jimloudsound) and will have noticed that we confirmed one of the main stage headliners last week. I really don’t mean to tease you all by not releasing the name but we’re not allowed to yet as part of the agreement,” King blogged on the official website.
“The band has other deals they need to do and announcing RockNess might get in the way of those negotiations. All I can say is that RockNess fans love this them and they’ll ensure a massive party descends on the Loch in June 2011. There are loads of other negotiations going on with a lot more acts wanting to play the festival this year than any other.”
Organisers are also looking at the possibility of a new layout for the festival. “We are still looking at changing the site around a little and we have some subtle changes that we think will make the show a better experience for you all,” wrote King, “I’m going to be tweeting on this and other things over the coming months.”
As previously reported, a limited about of Rock Ness 2011 tickets will go on sale for £99. The passes will be available from 28 October at 9am and when they are close to selling out, organisers will release £135 early bird tickets.
Student early bird passes will be available for £125 with a three-month payment plan to be launched following the £99 deal.
A ticket link will appear when the Rock Ness tickets go on sale.
