Speaking about today’s announcement,festival director Jim Kings said, “It’s birthday greetings all round at RockNess this year and there are some must see DJs coming to celebrate with Soma and the Sub Club.  The Arcadia UFO Stage is brand new and takes off from where the Afterburner left last year. The Arcadia have promised it’s even better than the Afterburner and we know it’s one of the best stages at the festival and the perfect place for Weatherall to return with ‘A Love from Outer Space’. Tiger & Woods, Ivan Smagghe and Hudson Mohawke are super hot and I can’t wait to see them as well.  Sub Club is already looking really great and good news is there is still more for them to announce.

Keep an eye on the site as we are sure we will be hearing from Jim soon…
