Alright

Was just wandering what is regarded as better out of Belladrum and Loopallu?

I have never been to either and am looking to go to one this summer, but unfortunately cannot afford both.

I'd never really been a big fan of supergrass, but seen them at arctic monkeyfest in manchester last year and thought they done a really good set so wouldn't mind them heading up bella. I'm trying to think who i'd really like to see though, and after last year at rockness would love to see the manics headlining bella, but that's maybe a bit far fetched! also think sigur ros on the main stage would be awesome. Thought the dangleberries with the bagpipes and guitars and doing queen covers was class last year so would like to see them back, or think one of the big 'tribute' bands like the bootleg beatles, bjorn again or the queen one would go down well on the main stage in a sunny afternoon drunken singalong slot.

Saying all that, i genuinely am not really that bothered about the line-up, obviously it is great if you get bands you like and are hoping for etc, but anyone who has been before knows that it impossible to not have a good time at this festival!!

supergrass are doing smaller fests this year, and avoiding the bigger ones.

I can count on my left hand the number of good songs Supergrass have had. And that includes the three fingers I lost during the war.

Here's my (perhaps slightly absurd) picks/hopes/whatever

.Madness would be brilliant. Not beyond possibility.

.Bit of a notion but Kevin Rowland/Dexys? Would be very Bella.

.I think electronic music is under-represented at Bella. Hot Chip? The Orb? Air?

.Frank Turner. Surely not too much to ask.

.Morrissey? Again, not the most ridiculous thing ever suggested. Would be a dream come true. He has a new album in the works and a greatest hits to promote and doesn't seem to be doing any of the majors this year. Bella would be a very subversive Morrissey-esque thing to do.
