Kaiser Chiefs have been announced to headline the Saturday night of this year’s 12th Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival in a Scottish festival exclusive and their first ever appearance at any Highland festival.
"2015 is going to be another big year for the Kaiser Chiefs and we’re thrilled to be invited back to play in Scotland, a place where we have had so many special shows. Our last show in Scotland is going to be hard to top. But let’s all give it a go, " said Simon Rix from the band.
Also announced to headline the Black Isle Brewery Grassroots Stage on the festival’s Friday night is Eddi Reader, Honeyblood, KLOË, Manran, Scooty And The Skyhooks who play the main stage on Bella’s Thursday bill, Martin Stephenson & the Daintees, MacFloyd, Tantz, Torridon, CoCo and the Butterfields, The New Madrids, Blackbeard's Tea Party, Dizraeli and the Small Gods, Goat Roper Rodeo Band, and Rusty Shackle.
The Proclaimers have already been announced as the headliner of the festival’s new third day main stage evening programme on the Thursday. Belladrum has also announced that its fancy dress theme this year will be ‘Superheroes.’ A Friday headliner will be publicised in due course, together with around 100 more acts.
Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival will take place on Thursday 6th to Saturday 8th August 2015 in the picturesque surroundings of Belladrum Estate, near Beauly in Inverness-shire, Scotland.
"The Kaisers 2008 gig at Strathpeffer has gone down in Highland lore as one of those epic ‘I was there’ moments. Much to my disappointment, I wasn’t, so I’m really delighted to be able to bring the band back to the Highlands for their first ever festival here," said Belladrum promoter Joe Gibbs.
Belladrum offers plenty of interest aside from the music, including an array of entertainment for children, although the fairground rides will not be on site this year. Attractions include street theatre, cabaret, cinema, dance, alternative therapies, stalls, food and drink
