ROCKNESS is very pleased to announce that jagged electro behemoth The Japanese Popstars will be tearing up the Road To Rockness on a six-date tour in celebration of the ‘Year of the Ness’. And not only that, all Road To RockNess ticket buyers will be entered into a very special prize draw to win exclusive VIP tickets to this year’s RockNess festival, set on the picturesque banks of Loch Ness and featuring headline sets fromKasabian, The Chemical Brothers and Paulo Nutini.
The Japanese Popstars have carved out an enviable reputation in just four short years, rivalling the biggest names in dance as the must-see live act with a coruscating show of foot-stomping, speaker smashing dance music that will blow you away. Taking in Nottingham, Sheffield, Glasgow, Dundee and Aberdeen throughout this May, The Road To Rockness will build anticipation for the NME Awards’ Best Small Festival and UK Festival Awards’ Best Line-Up winning festival to fever pitch.
RockNess Festival Director Jim King Said: ‘The Japanese Popstars gave the most incredible live performance at RockNess last year on the main stage which was the talk of the festival! They’re one of the hottest new and exciting electronic bands coming out of the UK and their new show is off the scale!’
With their forthcoming album ‘Controling Your Allegiance’ featuring collaborations with The Cure’s Robert Smith, Jon Spencer (of Blues Explosion fame) and Chicago House Legend Green Velvet set for release in June, The Japanese Popstars are on course to be one of the biggest acts of the summer and The Road To RockNess is your chance to get to catch them before anyone else.
