Guillemots, Rachel Sermanni and Kassidy are amongst the names added to the already bulging Belladrum bill. Limited Saturday tickets are now on sale!
The fast speed at which weekend tickets are selling has prompted festival organisers to bring forward the release of a limited number of Saturday adult and 12-and-under tickets exclusively through Skiddle. These will be available tomorrow morning, so if you want to get your hands on a day ticket set your alarm and get yours as soon as possible, because these WILL sell out. Belladrum Saturday tickets will be available here.
Fast-rising Scots indie band Kassidy have stepped in to replace Frightened Rabbit as Saturday headliners on the Hothouse Stage, after Frightened Rabbit had to pull out.
Festival promoter Joe Gibbs said: “When Frightened Rabbit had to pull out due to the offer of a tour in the US, we immediately thought of Kassidy. They played Bella last year and went down a storm; since then they have sold out The Ironworks and lots of other venues, and we are really proud to be able to offer them their first major festival headline slot.”
Also added to the Bella bill are the Brit, Mercury and NME awards nominated Guillemots, Idlewild’s Roddy Woomble who headlines the Black Isle Brewery Grassroots Stage on the Saturday, fast rising Highland star Rachel Sermanni, electronic beats from Unicorn Kid, Aberdeen indie band The Xcerts, alt country singer-songwriter King Charles, acoustic folk artistes Ben Howard and Lucy Rose, two piece noisemongers Bronto Skylift, and Raghu Dixit from Bangalore, who describes his music as ‘indo world folk rock.’
Twin Scots rock legends Texas and Deacon Blue are to headline the eighth staging of the festival. Also announced for the event are: Echo & The Bunnymen; Frank Turner; Newton Faulkner; Ed Sheeran; Anna Calvi; Admiral Fallow; Easy Star All Stars; Teddy Thomson ; Little Comets; Dry The River; MC Xander; Young Rebel Set; Birdy; 3 Daft Monkeys; Roddy Hart & The Lonesome Fire; Emile Sande; The Amphetameanies; Wooden Box With A Fistful Of Fivers; The Dangleberries; The Staves; The Webb Sisters; CW Stoneking and His Primitive Horn Orchestra; Skerryvore; Saint Saviour Benjamin Francis Leftwich; Drunken Balordi; James Mackenzie & The Aquascene; Cousti; Diddums; Torridon; Iain MacLaughlin & The Outsiders; and the Rooty Ma Toot Big Band.
Belladrum 2011 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’.
