Fatboy Slim to play at Loch Ness

Norman Cook has announced plans for a huge summer gig on the banks of Loch Ness. Fatboy Slim will headline the 20,000 capacity event which will take place near the village of Dores near Inverness, joined by acts such as Mylo and Carl Cox. The location was chosen by Cook after plans for a Brighton Beach event fell through.

The event will coincide with the release of a Fatboy greatest hits compilation. The DJ said: “We needed something to do on Glastonbury weekend, and I couldn’t think of a more suitable caper. The Celts are renowned for their partyability, and we’ve got some cracking special guests on the bill.”
