Heaps of exciting plans are well under way for RockNess 2011 – confirmed today as being staged on 10 – 12 June, 2011 – and organisers are keen to stress that revellers will need to be fast off the mark in securing the fan friendly briefs – once the £99 tickets are gone there will be no re-release at this price.
Speaking about the £99 launch ticket offer, festival boss Jim King commented, “Rock Ness was amazing last year with great performances from a host of acts. We had ridiculously high levels of fun and unbelievably low levels of crime, and we want to reward our most loyal customers with this incredible offer which in terms of value is unbeatable. This is officially the ‘Year of the Ness’ so please book early as it’s going to be a great show.”
This latest feel good news follows the recent praise of the festival’s audience after crime levels were revealed as being at an all time low. Under the SafeNess message, Police, Local Authorities and Emergency Services applauded multiple crime prevention successes which saw over 30,000 fans rock out in a trouble free environment to world class acts including The Strokes, Leftfield, Blondie, Fatboy Slim, Plan B, Ian Brown, Aphex Twin and Pendulum.
A raft of new additions to RockNess, many Scottish exclusives, made it one of the most fun weekends to be had anywhere in 2010. These included the debut of the spectacular Arcadia Afterburner arena, Howard’s End Pub with landlord extraordinaire Howard Marks and side splitting comedy headlined by Glasgow’s Kevin Bridges.
BBC Radio 1 and Radio Scotland broadcast the action from site along with the roving team from STV and a host of fantastic new entertainment was added – including The Big Wheel, allowing fans a bird’s eye view of the most beautiful festival in the world!
The £99 launch tickets go on sale at 9am on Thursday 28 October via WWW.ROCKNESS.CO.UK and are on a first come first served basis.
