Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival have announced that Mercury Prize winning singer-songwriter Badly Drawn Boy is the latest artist to be confirmed for the two day Highland Festival.

His debut album The Hour of Bewilderbeast picked up the 2000 Mercury award and 2 years later he scored the film adaptation of Nick Hornby’s novel About a Boy to great critical acclaim. His most recent album and second full film soundtrack Is There Nothing We Could Do? features music inspired by the motion picture The Fattest Man in Britain and was released December 2009. 

Other acts confirmed include; 2010 Ivor Novello nominee Patch William; Glasgow’s 40 strong vocal group The Parsonage Choir; festival favourites The Dangleberries; Brooklyn folk singer Nels Andrews; rising local singer-songwriter Rachel Sermanni and Edinburgh’s Alex Gardner who will be joining us hot off the back of supporting JLS on their July tour.  

These join Friday headliners Feeder, the Brit Award-nominated alternative rock band from Wales, have three platinum selling albums to their credit, and Glasgow’s Amy MacDonald, who headlines the Saturday night, has sold over 3 million albums and last played Bella in 2007.  

Other acts confirmed over the weekend include The Divine Comedy, Bob Marley’s legendary Wailers, Candi Staton, the queen of southern soul; Brighton rock band the Levellers; local heroes Wolfstone; Barra’s The Vatersay Boys; band of the moment Stornoway, Erland and the Carnival, Alex Gardner, Young Fathers, Unicorn Kid, The Woodentops, folk legend Dick Gaughan, John Otway and Beth Jeans Houghton. 

Belladrum 2010 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’.
