Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival which takes place from Thursday 3rd to Saturday 5th August 2017 in the picturesque surroundings of Belladrum Estate, near Beauly in Inverness-shire, Scotland, has announced the "eclectic mix of electronic artists and dj’s from the Highlands and further afield" that will perform this year on the Mother's Ruin stage.

Announced for the Friday are State of Grace, Ally Ridgers, Evan Duthie, Marc, Louis Slorach, Esko, Stuart Ross, Mad Dog, Roo, Jamie B, and Fozko, while on saturday there's Grant Clark / Khalid Hussain, Alan Macpherson, Hypnotic Groove, Andy Rough, Alottarhythman, Lewis Bates, Steve Wilson, Elephants Can:t Jump, Viami Mice, Aidan Dawes, and Cougar Macdougall.

Acts previously confirmed for Belladrum include headliners The Pretenders, Franz Ferdinand, and  Sister Sledge (Thursday), plus First Aid Kit, Feeder, Birdy, KT Tunstall, Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes, Honeyblood, Young Fathers, Deaf Havana, The Sherlocks, Karine Polwart, Dub Pistols, and many more. For all of the details so far please see the line-up page.

Music comes from around 90 acts across five stages featuring locally and internationally renowned artists and favouring a lo-fi approach. Belladrum offers plenty of interest aside from the music, including entertainment for children, street theatre, cabaret, cinema, dance, alternative therapies, stalls, food and drink.

Bella sold out each of the last eight years, often months before the event so fans are urged to buy early to avoid disappointment.
