Fair to say that elsewhere in the Rockness announcement will pull in the big headlines , it was the final paragraph that brought the biggest smile to our faces.

Former operators of the biggest club night in Inverness and winners of ‘Club Night of the Year’ at Scotland’s ICA Awards, FILTH djs Ross Lyall and Andrew McGibbon are currently stretching their horizons. What a better what to celebrate than a slot on the bill of Rockness!!  Andrew commented “We’re delighted to be asked back to play at Rockness for the second year running. It’s an amazing opportunity to get the chance to play one of your favourite festivals right on your doorstep… but to get that chance again is brilliant. We’ll be pulling out all the stops this year to make it a set to remember and do our best to make our mark on the Rockness crowd!”

They are joined by POLYMATH aka Martin Gowans.  This talented rising star whose own tech house productions have featured on the playlists of Radio 1’s Kissy Sell Out, Tiga and Wolfgang Gartner will be right at home at RockNess. Evidently pleased with the announcement Martin said he was “Delighted to be playing at my home festival for the second year running and privileged to be playing as part of a killer lineup”. You can see our interview with Polymath prior to last year’s festival: Interview with Polymath

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
