Lineup and Details for Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival 2015
Tickets to the twelfth staging of Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival go on sale online only at 0900 on Thursday 25th September 2014. The festival takes place on 6th- 8th August August 2015. A third headliner slot on the main stage has been added to the event on the Thursday opening night.
Bella sold out in record time in 2014, and has sold out each of the last six years, often months before the event so fans are urged to buy early to avoid disappointment.
Full weekend, child (12 & under), campervan/caravan and electrical hook-up e-tickets can be purchased by going to the ticket link on the festival’s web site www.tartanheartfestival.co.uk or direct to www.skiddle.com/bella

> Campervan/caravan tickets cost £55 and electrical hook-up cost £85.
(all plus booking fees).
> Children 12 and under attend free on all days (with our free advance tickets).
“These days, a vast majority of our audience is already on site by the Thursday night so we thought we should offer a headliner with support on that night,” said festival promoter Joe Gibbs. “Fans with standard weekend tickets will be able to occupy camspites and attend the opening ceilidh on the Thursday as usual.”
In 2014 the legendary Tom Jones headlined the Friday of the festival while the Saturday night featured the popular rock band Razorlight at the top of the bill. Frightened Rabbit returned to the event as very special guests. Also featured were: Billy Bragg; Band of Skulls; The Temperance Movement; I Am Kloot; Catfish & The Bottlemen; and Grandmaster Flash.
Belladrum 2015 takes place in the beautiful Highland surroundings of Belladrum Estate, near Beauly in Inverness-shire. The independent festival has built a reputation for its eclectic line-ups, its offbeat non-musical entertainments and its all-ages approach. The festival won a VisitScotland Thistle Award in 2009 and is a past winner of the Grassroots Festival Award at the UK Festival Awards, the festival industry’s ‘oscars’.
Line up so far...
We're very happy to announce The Proclaimers as the headliners for the new Thursday night slot on 6th August 2015 at Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival.
This will be the first time the festival has featured a main stage headliner on its enhanced opening night.
We feel that it's fitting to welcome back Scotland’s iconic Reid brothers, Charlie and Craig, exactly ten years after they last headlined it.
Please see http://www.tartanheartfestival.co.uk/ for all information. You will require a 3 day ticket to see the Proclaimers on the main stage on Thursday night. If you do not purchase the ticket you will still be able to access the general arena and ceilidh.
UK kings of electro and hip hop swing, The Correspondents whose song ‘Fear and Delight’ is used as the theme tune to BBC Three comedy ‘Crims.’ The band was included in The Daily Telegraph’s top ten Glastonbury highlights two years in a row.
Steve Lamacq championed Keston Cobblers Club who come from the same folk-pop genre as Mumford & Sons and whose songs range from soaring harmonies to tender and lyrical.
Wildly popular Highland heroes Scooty & The Skyhooks who have been packing out dance halls in the Highlands since the ‘80s with their set lists of Motown and Stax classics. Also opening the stage are Highland indie band Bite Night.
