Punk icons Buzzcocks and LA soul rockers Vintage Trouble have been added to the main stage line-up, joining headliners Travis, The Wombats, Beverley Knight, We Are Scientists and more.

New York singer songwriter Willy Mason will headline the Black Isle Brewery Grassroots Stage on Friday night, while smoky voiced folk and soul singer-songwriter Lianne La Havas will appear in a Scottish festival exclusive.

These are joined by plaintive Newcastle sextet Lanterns On The Lake who fuse folk melodies with light electronic instrumentation, and by Carrbridge artist Rachel Sermanni who makes a return to the festival after last year’s triumphant appearance.

Jiggery folkery six piece Mad Dog Mcrea bring their folk rock, gypsy jazz ‘shake your ass’ mix to Bella for the first time as do Red Sky July, an alt-country band formed by Texas guitarist Ally McErlaine and Shelly Poole of Alisha’s Attic.

Glasgow ska band Bombskare play the main stage, and Pink Floyd tribute band MacFloyd play the whole of ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’ plus Aberdeen blues band The Jerry Jablonski Band make their first appearance at the event. Inverness band Little Mill Of Happiness will also be at Bella, as will Skye electronic fusion act Niteworks and Ullapool’s Grousebeater Sound System.

Belladrum 2012 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 off beat 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’.

Belladrum has sold out each of the past three years and tickets to this year’s event continue to sell at well ahead of last year’s rate.

A limited number of Saturday tickets will go on sale on Tuesday 1st May through Skiddle.
