Scotland’s nightclub under the stars, Groove Loch Ness 2016

August 20, 2016

Just days after the mud has dried out on the boots of those who attended this year’s sell-out Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival, music lovers from the Highlands and beyond will be pulling them on again, this time for Groove Loch Ness. Known as Scotland’s nightclub under the stars, the outdoor festival is being staged again this year following overwhelming positive feedback from last year’s inaugural event which saw a raft of international DJs help transform farmland at Dores, overlooking iconic Loch Ness, into a big non-stop musical party zone. Taking place on Saturday, August 20, from 2pm onwards, the impressive line-up of acts include DJ and acclaimed producer Duke Dumont, German DJ Alexander Ridha, better known by his stage name Boys Noize, Grammy-nominated DJ/producer Mark Knight, Glasgow-based Optimo and hot new production/DJ duo Camelphat. There will also be a tented arena at this year’s event which will include sets from Leon Vynehall, Dan Shake, Moxie, State of Grace, B2B, Let Us Play, Craigie Cartell and Hector’s House.
