Day 8 - Festival 1 - ROCKNESS!!!! (on the Loch Ness)

Transport from Inverness to the festival was by double decker buss, we got on to cries of Oggi Oggi Oggi Oi Oi Oi. Most impressive setting for a music festival ever, the view over the main stage stretched the length of Loch Ness. It was so lush and green and a lovely sunny day. It seemed like everyone from around the region came, 4 year olds to 70 year olds, most camping and attending the whole 3 days. It really was a weekend away with lots of stalls and even comedy. There was so much choice for food and drinks (the bar set up was impressive) and we never had to queue for a toilet. We enjoyed champagne and strawberries early on and shots of Rhubarb liqueur, we were very impressed by the whole set-up. The strange thing was most of the music was electronic music and we liked how the families and older generation enjoyed it. Steve Aoki was awesome, he really got the crowd amped. He spent more time standing on the decks geeing up the crowd and throwing things into the audience (4 cream pies, an inflatable raft and inflatable air matress, and spraying the crowd with 4 bottles of Moet) than DJ'ing, but he was a highlight. Fat boy slim put on an awesome show and  there was Skream and Benga and Example ended the night with an epic set.

Unfortunately there isn't any photos as Reuben enjoyed himself a little too much and lost the camera his sunglasses and all his self respect in the chaos.

Just there for 1 day, Saturday. Favourites....

A few pictures captured from outside the event the next day.
It was an overcast morning instead of glorious evening
They really do it no justice at all :-(
