Belladrum 2010 and other news

Recommended Posts


For the lucky ones who got tickets to Bella this year before the event sold-out, the general opinion seems to be that it was a vintage to savour – warm, fruity and plenty of body. If you didn’t get a ticket, there’s always next year. The 2010 dates are 6th & 7th August and tickets go on sale in the autumn – in time to feature as that Christmas present for the boy/girl who has everything. From the whole Bella team, thanks to all whom came for being the happiest, politest, most laid-back and mellow crowd we can remember.

Friday 18th & Saturday 19th September

When most of the country are thinking of hanging up their wellies as festival season draws to a close, there’s still one little corner of the Highlands still partying well after the summer sun has gone down. Yes, of course its nearly time for Loopallu. Often fondly described as a family reunion you’d actually like to go to (!) five years on sees still more incredible talent wanting to make the long journey north. This year that includes the return of loveable indie urchins The View, Liverpools recently reformed Lightning Seeds, Neville Staple from The Specials with his band, young folksters Mumford & Sons and Kid British to name but a few. But with only 2500 tickets available, don’t leave it until the last minute as they usual sell out in advance!! Tickets from www.thebooth.co.uk


9th,10th & 11th October
