The History of Rockness Festival
Rockness is an annual music festival which takes place in Scotland at Clune Farm, Dores, on the banks of Loch Ness near Inverness. The first Rockness festival took place on 24 June 2006 and has grown in size every year since. In June 2008 AEG took over as the main promoter of the festival. The festival is known as “the most beautiful festival in the world” and “the only festival with its own monster” due to its beautiful location at Loch Ness which is the home of the Loch Ness Monster
In 2007 the festival was increased to two days and had additional stages.
Rockness Trivia – A couple were married at the 2008 event after becoming engaged at the festival the previous year. The wedding took place at the inflatable church on the Saturday afternoon
