More acts have been announced for the 14th 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.
Newly added are Young Fathers, Deaf Havana, Dub Pistols, The Sherlocks, Saint PHNX, JR Green, O'Connell & Love, Mr Tea and the Minions, Jericho Hill, The MacGills, Morever, The Boy With The Lion Head, November Lights, Big Fish Little Fish, Inverness Military Wives, and the Headphone Disco.
Confirmed acts include headliners The Pretenders, Franz Ferdinand, and Sister Sledge (Thursday), plus First Aid Kit, Feeder, Birdy, KT Tunstall, Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes, Honeyblood, Karine Polwart, 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.
For the third year running, there is an option to buy three day tickets to include a programme of artists on the main stage on the Thursday night, in addition to the traditional two day tickets.
Tickets are in the form of E-tickets and a limited number of hard tickets. Weekend tickets are priced at £117. Three day tickets are priced at £142. Campervan/caravan tickets are priced at £70, and electrical hook-up are priced at £92. (all plus booking fees). Children 12 and under attend free on all days.
A deposit scheme is available on standard weekend tickets, and upgrades from weekends to 3 days are also available.
E-tickets will be on sale via the festival website, and printed tickets will be available from 9am on Thursday 27th October from the usual agents including: Inverness – The Ironworks, Eden Court Theatre, Caffery’s and Hootananny’s; Kiltarlity – Post Office; Beauly – Morrison’s; Dingwall – Sweet Treats; Elgin – Sound & Vision; Aberdeen – Aberdeen Performing Arts; Edinburgh and Glasgow – TicketsScotland.
When buying tickets on-line Bella patrons are being given an opportunity to contribute to the Archie Foundation, a charity which is helping to improve children’s hospital facilities in the Highlands.
