The Strokes – RockNess 2010

American rock band The Strokes have been confirmed as the first headliners for RockNess 2010 which will be taking place from 11th – 13th June.

The Strokes have been off the live circuit since 2006 and have recently been working on solo projects. NME the UK music weekly recently voted “Is This It” the band’s 2001 album its album of the decade but their new album is still behind schedule.

Also debuting at RockNess are the electro pop band Friendly Fires plus another confirmed artist is dance legends 2 Many DJs. Radio One will be the festival’s official radio partner with Rob Da Bank and Annie Mac hosting their own arenas.

New for 2010 are front row camping early bird tickets which cost £120 but give a place closer to the main arena and late night action. These tickets went on sale on Thursday 3rd December 2009 as an exclusive pre-sale via RockNess. Tickets can be purchased from Ticketline.

If you are not planning to camp at RockNess you can book accommodation in Inverness but make sure you book early as everywhere will be full!! Visit the Inverness B&B Accommodation page of the Inverness Guest House Association website to see a selection of some of the Best B&Bs in Inverness.
