RockNess Music Festival has announced its initial lineup, and in their first ever headlining slot, Mumford & Sons take the top spot.
Festival director Jim King said, “I’m so happy with the list of acts we’re announcing today that I now just can’t wait for the first tent peg in the ground and for the party to start” via the festival’s website.
In addition, he gave a nice nod to Mumford, saying, “Mumford and Sons. Wow. I am over the moon they agreed to play our show. They could have played anywhere but they chose The Highlands. It’s going to be special.”
The lineup includes the likes of Deadmau5, Biffy Clyro, Ed Sheeran, Justice, Noah & The Whale, and Metronomy among others.
This announcement is just the start, as the festival will continue to add bands, DJs and comedy acts.
RockNess will take place June 8 – 10 in Loch Ness the Highlands of Scotland.
Tickets are now on sale.
