RockNess not going ahead this summer

As Michael Eavis will tell you, it’s good to rest your festival from time to time, and I think poor old Nessie deserves one summer off from all that noisy new fangled pop music (indeed, if the Daily Mail is to be believed, eight years of the loch side music bash has possibly led to the lake’s famous monster fleeing).

So yes, organisers of Scotland’s RockNess festival have announced that the event will not go ahead this year, because apparently there’s far too much sport going on this summer for people to be heading north for some musical good times.

In a statement the events promoters said: “Due to the addition of a number of events alongside the World Cup and the Commonwealth Games we’ve decided to take a year off. We’re using this break to make the event bigger and better than ever in 2015 so have an amazing summer and see you back at the Loch next year”.
