The Aliens and Just Jack confirm Rock Ness

thealiensScotland’s wildest party this summer Rock Ness has been boosted by the addition of homegrown heroes The Aliens.

Set in the Highlands, Rock Ness combines a breathtaking natural amphitheatre with a stunning line up. Grabbing some exclusive performances, Rock Ness has emerged in just three short years as one of the best festivals around.

Amongst the latest additions to the bill are Scottish indie heroes The Aliens. Formed from the ashes of The Beta Band, The Aliens released their second album late last year to acclaim from both fans and critics alike.

Joining the Fife group on the bill are Just Jack, Australia’s Sneaky Soundsystem and Glaswegian newcomer Tommy Reilly. One of ClashMusic’s ’9 For 2009′ Baddies are sure to impress on the mainstage while festival legends The Cuban Brothers are also set to perform.

Further down the bill hot new DJ Annie Mac has been confirmed alongside Radio 1′s brightest new stars Jaymo and Andy George. Manchester group The Whip are set to bring their sleek live show to Rock Ness, and will be joined by Scottish rustic rockers Frightened Rabbit.

As always, Clash will be there to add a little spice to the affair. Clash hosts the Wonderland Arena, where previous headliners have included The View and French electro legends Daft Punk. This year the organisers have secured a major coup with rave heroes Orbital set to play a rare live set.

The Hartnoll brothers disbanded in 2004, but are set to bring their legendary live show to the Highlands along with a sure fire party atmosphere.

Rock Ness takes place in Dores, near Inverness between June 12th – 14th.
