Since our last newsflash there has been a rush of funky new additions to Bella's '08 line-up: cult heroes The Lemonheads and Pete Wylie, London upstarts The Holloways, Angus & Julia Stone back by exceptional demand, Sergeant who are still telling the world it's their favourite festival, as well as a host of the next best things…. Rosabella Gregory, The Hosts, Broken Records, Jocasta Sleeps, Twin Atlantic, Rootsystem, The Draymin, The Lost Brothers and more still to come!!


They're back! Three crazy dudes in a tiny caravan. Dukesbox - the incredible human jukebox will let you push their buttons at bella. You put your coin in, make your selection, and whatever song they're playing at the time, they'll stop, riffle through the music sheets and play your request.

Also back by popular demand, the world's smallest nightclub - The Miniscule of Sound; it only fits six disco-heads and it you don't satisfy the dress-code, you aint going to be one of 'em.


Never let it be said we don't spoil you! This year at Bella, the Argyll Foods farm producers are bringing you the very best Highland homegrown scoff. As we write, oysters, shell-fish and crabs are being prepared by Loch Fyne Oysters; organic beef by Barbreck Farms; Sticky home-made puddings by a lady called Bumble; organic lamb burgers by Ifferdale; cheese on toast and cauliflour cheese by Inverloch; and more!

And of course, you can wash all this down in time-honoured fashion with a pint of organic Black Isle Blonde or Aspall's organic cider from the Black Isle Brewery Grassroots Tent bar.


Did you see that pair of Hell's Grannies last year? If they would only come out of hiding (they know who they are), we could award them _ even now - the '07 fancy dress prize.

Meantime, we need you to start thinking about how OUTRAGEOUSLY you can dress yourself up to attend this year's Bella.

High marks will be given for creativity, originality and humour. And masks will be obligatory at the Invernetian Masked Ball - only for grown-ups.


This year, demand for Groovy Greg's de luxe tipis has exceeded all previous records. 70 tipis and 20 bell tents have already been reserved - which is a technical sell-out and heap powerful medicine even for this conical character. But being an accommodating sort of guy, Greg has agreed to slip a few more wigwams into the truck. So if you're still looking for six-packed comfort and style, you'll find it at info@tipihire.com or on 01362 680074. Make the reservation.....

I'm just going from the craic. Yes the line up doesn't really have any big names but I look forward to dicovering loads of new bands and I think that's what the smaller festies are for.

Gig at Drummonds was amazing, singer is totally mental, climbing speaker stacks, clambering over tables during songs, jumping into the crowd and at one point when crowd surfing he reached up and tried to swing from one of the chandeliers which was unfortunately only held by a thin flex so they both came crashing to the floor! Still carried on so fair play, looking forward to seeing them at Bella!
