The Rockness machine is starting to get into an action as Jim King announced via his twitter account (jimloudsound)

“first headline for rock ness 2011 has just confirmed. its a big one!!!”

The other headlines are being worked on at the moment with Jim noting that due to artists, announcements will not be til November (? does this mean the artists are touring currently?)

However his tweets also reveal that the launch deal, which has been teased a bit, will be announced today (no sign yet but we will get it to you asap).

The early bird deal is promising to be quite something and if it is sub £100, this might affect other pricing strategies for festivals and big events in the area.

Anyway this is purely speculation at the moment, but my money is on Faithless and Biffy Clyro as the headliners.
