Nessie’s going to be rocking out this summer as Rockness is returning to the banks of Loch Ness this year with a killer line up.

From the 7th to the 9th of June, Clune Farm will be playing host to some of the hottest acts 2013 has to offer. The line-up includes some cracking bands and artists such as ska legends Madness, Bombay Bicycle Club and newly anointed BRIT winner Ben Howard. Alongside them will be the Rockness veterans Fatboy Slim and recently announced headliner Plan B.

As wonderful as these guys will make a sunny weekend in the most mysterious banks of Scotland, you could make your weekend even better if you head over to the festival’s competition for 4 days of VIP access here. It’s worth it for the luxury toilets.

Here’s the full line-up as it stands right now:
• Above and Beyond
• Alabama 3
• Alex Metric
Basement Jaxx (headliner)
• Ben Howard
• Bombay Bicycle Club
• Booka Shade
• Camera Obscura
• Carl Craig
• Ellie Goulding
Example (headliner)
• Fatboy Slim
• Futureheads
• Gary Beck
• Hand Bouffmyhre
• Harvey Mckay
• Jackmaster
• Jaguar Skills
• Jessie Ware
• Josh Wink
• Julio Bashmore
• Madeon
• Madness
• Mark Henning
• Matzo
• Netsky Live!
• Newton Faulkner
• Nic Fanciulli
• Pan-Pot
Plan B (headliner)
• Proxy
• Redlight
• Skream
• Steve Aoki
• The Maccabees
• The Temper Trap
• The Vaccines

This line up is a glorious melting pot of DJs (Fatboy Slim, Netsky, Jaguar Skills), rappers (Plan B, Example), indie bands (The Vaccines, TGTF favourites The Temper Trap) and indie acoustic solo acts (Ben Howard, Newton Faulkner) with something to please everyone.

Tickets to Rockness are going to set you back £139 for the 3 days and camping. For the rest of the ticket prices and to buy, head here.

Biffy Clyro and Mumford and Sons absolutely killed it last year, but with a line up like this, the Loch Ness monster will have to do something spectacular to stop Rockness 2013 outdoing it.
