Rockness in association with Sound City are on the hunt for 20 bands/acts to play the at the Rockness Sound City Stage at the festival, with one of these acts also being chosen to return to perform at RockNess 2012 in the Goldenvoice Arena (this is the first time we have heard talk of Rockness 2012).

Entry will be via Sonic bids you can enter here.

A similar competition is also being run for DJ’s although, it will be public vote and then a live performance which will determine whether you will a place on the bill at Rockness. Full details here.

Just a little comment…. with the exception of James Mackenzie and the Aquascene (well done guys by the way!) we have heard no word of any local acts playing Rockness this year, which given that GoNorth are not there this year is a bit of disheartening. We are however hoping (cross our fingers and all that), that the organisers take the opportunity to pick some of the local club and live acts for the bill.

A lifelong passion for music matched with a geeky fascination for social media and websites resulted in the creation of Inverness Gigs back in 2010. The aim of the site is to help promote, support and generally raise awareness of the local music scene.In fairness fifteen years of being a psychiatric nurse never prepared me for the experiences that we have had over the last few years and the evolution of Inverness Gigs has certainly been a steep learning curve.I currently write (less and less), edit and co-ordinate most of the Inverness Gigs activities.Occasionally seen on Twitter, and  LinkedIn, if you want get in touch you can contact me direct at chris@igi.gs
