Zedd, Tom Odell, Niki And The Dove and Mike Dignam also added

RockNess have confirmed a new wave of acts for the festival with Ms Dynamite, Yasmin, James Mackenzie & The Aquascene, Zedd, Tom Odell, Niki And The Dove and Mike Dignam all confirmed today.

Massively important in her genre with strong connections to the underground and a number of notable cutting edge collaborations to her credit Ms Dynamite brings her live show to the festival in a stunning return to top form.

Flying the flag for the very best breakthrough talent from the Scottish Highlands is James Mackenzie & The Aquascene. The Inverness four piece, fronted by James MacKenzie and supported by the very best in string accompaniment, evoke the finest moments of Damien Rice and Crosby, Stills & Nash yet maintain an originality that is melodic, engaging and uplifting.

Yasmin joins the bill in this year’s new Rock n Roll Circus Arena. Having DJd for many big artists including N.E.R.D. and with recent musical forays including Devlin and Labrinth, Yasmin is currently one of the hottest new names on the scene.

Leading the charge of a new generation of Swedish pop stars, Niki and the Dove combine epic choruses with Eastern European drum styles to make soaring songs dripping with euphoria - intriguing and dramatic. In contrast it’ll be a flamboyant retro rock takeover as the quite excellent Tom Odell extols his utterly charming, and at times operatic brand of original pop.

Mike Dignam’s dynamic vocals and energetic compositions belie his tender nineteen years. Two self penned, self recorded and self produced albums in, the second of which is set for release on his self created label this summer, and a number of successful tour support slots under his belt.

The beats take centre stage for the duration of DJ and remixer Zedd’s set as he prepares to unleash a radical and super catchy soundtrack that buzzes and hums. Definitely one to watch as collaborations with Gaga, Skrillex, Fatboy Slim and Armand van Helden testify.

Having slowly seduced audiences for the past year with their sweeping and relentlessly rocking soundscapes, Glasgow’s Strawberry Ocean Sea look destined for greatness.  A personal invitation by James Allan to open for Glasvegas on their current tour has seen the fast rising four piece garner rave reviews.
 
Festival favourite Thomas Gandey (aka Caged Baby) is back with exciting new material that captures his tough techno and sexy nu disco trademark and is aimed squarely at the dance floor. All round legend Graeme Park returns too for more spreading of the gorgeous, uplifting garage and house music gospel and the Rockness Ceilidh All Stars kick the weekend party into gear with a blast of banging ceilidh music.  

There's some exciting DJ talent from Inverness and The Scottish Highlands is set to keep the party rockin’ all weekend including  Abraham Thunderwolf, Polymath, Filth, The Led, Soundclash DJs and Audiolife.

Finally, the party loving, fashion-tastic We Own creative collective make their RockNess debut on site with an exclusive retail showcase of their cool, coveted We Own merchandise. What’s more, the We Own team have lined up Dutch DJ wunderkind Dem Slackers to spin his magic in a very special set in Howard’s End.  With Dem Slacker’s tracks supported by Crookers, Steve Aoki, Fake Blood, Don Rimini, Sinden, Tommy Sunshine, Mightyfools and many more.

“We’re really pleased to announce these latest acts. James Mackenzie & The Aquascene are a really talented local band that I can’t wait to hear live, Yasmin is going to be huge and it’s really exciting to have Ms Dynamite. We’ve also got the cream of the Highland club scene to rock Howard’s End into the early hours. Howard’s thinking of pulling out his dub step set so the guys had better be on top of the game. There’s now officially only 2 weeks to go until the start of the summer!”
Festival Director Jim King
