Following the cancellation of the 2020 incarnation of the Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival, the organisers have managed to secure all this year’s lineup, including headliners Nile Rodgers & Chic, Emeli Sande, with Van Morrison also confirmed for the rescheduled event next year.

Also, The Fratellis will make their Bella debut at next year’s event, which will take place from July 29th-31st 2021, which will take place at the Belladrum Estate near Beauly in Invernesshire.

Shed Seven, Passenger, Stiff Little Fingers, The Magic Numbers, Goodbye Mr Mackenzie, Dreadzone, Col. Mustard & the Dijon Five, Tide Lines, Kyle Falconer out of The View, and Ibibio Sound Machine are also among the headliners.

And Wuh-Oh, Luke La Volpe, Black Water County, Project Smok, Another Sky, Neon Waltz, Beans on Toast, Dangleberries and The Roov are also confirmed for the sold-out event – a monthly resale will take place on for any customers who are no longer able to attend.

Speaking of the new arrangements, event producer Dougie Brown said: “We were absolutely devastated when we had to cancel Bella this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, but are delighted that we have been able to re-book such an incredible line up of artists to appear at our delayed 17th outing next summer.

“Securing another icon with Van Morrison as our final headliner is the icing on the cake. We cannot wait to welcome everyone back to what is sure to be the biggest party in Belladrum history next summer!”
