ROCKNESS Festival looks set to be a riot of laughter this year.
Organisers of the festival, which takes place at Dores on the banks of Loch Ness, have announced a stellar line up of top comedians to keep everyone laughing all weekend. Kevin Bridges, Scott Agnew, Papa CJ, Rob Heeney and Chris Cox are among the comics lined up to perform at Howards End Pub on the festival site over the weekend. The pub will be fronted by Howard Marks the author of Mr Nice, who during the eighties had forty-three aliases, eighty-nine phone lines, and twenty five companies trading throughout the world. A movie of the same name about his fascinating life is currently in production.
Festival Director Jim King said: "We are all really excited to be introducing comedy at this year's festival in Howard Marks’ Pub. The talent announced today is some of the funniest out there on the comedy circuit and will bring a fantastic new dimension to what is definitely going to be the best RockNess yet. I can't think of anything better than sitting in Howard's End with a pint of organic beer laughing my socks off to these guys before popping over to catch some great bands on one of the music stages."
RockNess takes place from June 11 to June 13 and more information is available at www.rockness.co.uk
