The headliners will be announced for Rockness 2012 on Thursday the 26th of January (posted a couple of days ago on the Rockness Facebook page here)


There had previously been mis-communication that an announcement was due in December, but, obviously, it did not happen. The rumour mill has been reignited by Rockness, on their FB page, encouraging predictions for the two main stages.

Rumours include Noel Gallacher, Coldplay, Arctic Monkeys, Moby, Fat Boy Slim!!, Florence and the Machine, Franz Ferdinand, Emile Sande, Primal Scream, Faithless, Swedish House Mafia, Chase and Status, Snow Patrol, Chemical Brothers and of course, as in every year, Daft Punk. There have been some truly fantastic fake posters and announcements going around, but after last year we can with some confidence say that we have not got a clue

Interestingly on the 24th of November Jim King twittered:

“just thinking…all the acts we say we want @RockNessFest have a habit of ending up at that other fest down the road. hmmmm…..”

The first official announcement for Rockness was of course made some time ago and is here.
