DJ Fatboy Slim will headline the RockNess festival this summer, it has been announced.
He will join headliners The Strokes and Leftfield at the three-day event, which takes place on 11-13 June at Dores, close to the banks of Loch Ness.
The DJ, aka Norman Cook, played at the first RockNess festival five years ago.
Belgian duo Stephen and David Dewale will also play as the official festival ‘house band’, both under their 2manydjs moniker and as live band Soulwax.
Doves, Ian Brown and Friendly Fires have been confirmed, alongside Plan B, Dan le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip and The Cuban Brothers.
BBC Radio 1 is the event’s official partner, with DJs Zane Lowe, Annie Mac and Rob da Bank hosting the festival.
The event attracted more than 35,000 music fans last year.
Headliners last year included the Prodigy, Dizzy Rascal, Biffy Clyro and Flaming Lips.
