Biffy Clyro to headline RockNess 2009

Scottish rockers will close the bash next year

Biffy Clyro will headline the final day of the RockNess festival in Dores, Scotland next June.

The Scottish rockers will be playing on the third night of the bash, which runs from June 12 to 14 – expanded to three days for the first time.

The Prodigy, Basement Jaxx and Dizzee Rascal are also confirmed to play at the event. Fatboy Slim, usually a stalwart of the festival, will not be playing this time.

Biffy Clyro‘s Ben Johnston told the Daily Record that his band would unveil new material at the headline slot. “We are bored out of our minds playing the same songs,” he said. “We should have the (new) record done by then, and will unveil a ton of new material.”

Tickets are on sale now.
