Speaking about this year's launch announcement, Festival Director Jim King said, "I'm delighted to announce the first names we're bringing to the party at Loch Ness this summer. We've been working hard behind the scenes to bring you an eclectic line up of the highest calibre acts for which Rock Ness is synonymous. To top it all, we've reduced the price of our Weekend Camping tickets by £20 so you can join us at Rock Ness for less than most other major UK festivals at an amazing value price of £139. We've introduced a new Inverness Discount ticket, which is inclusive of all fees to support local businesses in Inverness if you buy over the counter; more details can be found on our website.

"If you haven't joined us at Rock Ness before, I promise you it is the best way to kickstart your summer, a completely electric atmosphere, partying in what is probably the most beautiful festival site in the world. If you have been to Rock Ness before then as always I'd like to thank you for your continued support in making it the best festival in Scotland. We've got many more bands and DJ's still to announce, plus another very special headliner, so stay tuned...!"

Tickets for the 8th edition of the festival, which takes place on the scenic banks of Loch Ness, Scotland, are priced at £139 (Student, Payment Plan in three instalments, and Inverness Discount Tickets), with the standard price of £149 for a weekend with or without camping. Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult. Under 12s go free.
