RockNess festival axed

The 2014 RockNess festival in Scotland has been called off. Organisers have blamed the cancellation on scheduling issues due to a slew of sporting events this summer (14), including the soccer World Cup in Brazil which kicks off in June (14).
A statement from organisers reads, “We’d like to thank you for your support over the last eight years. 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!”
Previous line-ups have included acts such as Kasabian, Ellie Goulding, Biffy Clyro and Mumford & Sons.
