RockNess

2006 - 2013

Fatboy Slim took his 'Brighton Beach Party to the shores of Loch Ness to create the first festival which was held on Saturday 24 June 2006 to a 20,000 crowd. The festival had two stages, a main stage and big top, which were active throughout the day. It started at midday and both stages hosted different dance acts about every hour and a half. Acts included X-Press 2, Stanton Warriors, Scratch Perverts, Linus Loves, Cagedbaby, Audio Bullys, Slam, Mylo, Carl Cox with Fatboy Slim headlining. The following year in 2007 the festival was greatly increased in size to accommodate over 35,000 festival goers over two days and featured headliners Daft Punk and The Chemical Brothers. It was in 2009 that the festival became a three-day festival and featured the very best acts and DJs from the world of electronic/Dance music. Sadly the festival finished after the 2013 event.
