Rock Ness

Weekend in early June
The shores of the world-famous Loch Ness outside Inverness, Scotland, is the site of this summer music festival featuring acts from the diverse genres of electronic, dance, and rock. Despite its remote location in the Scottish Highlands, the event still draws as many as 35,000 music fans.
The first Rock Ness took place on June 24, 2006, with a bill favoring electronic acts. A successful attendance draw inspired organizers to extend the event to a full weekend the following year. Exposure for the event increased again in 2008 when performances were televised for the first time on Channel 4, a major British network. That year organizers also featured a more diverse program, with the dance acts performing on Saturday and the rock bands playing on Sunday.
Keeping in practice with similar multiple-day events, Rock Ness concert-goers typically stay in campsites located on the festival grounds. In addition to the music, other attractions in past years have been the Bollywood Cocktail Bar and the Big Love Inflatable Church, which performed an actual wedding ceremony in 2008.
