Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival 2020
The festival appeals to a family audience, from babes in arms to grannies in their eighties, and everyone else in between. Its diverse range of musical genres – from Celtic through mainstream rock and indie to roots, jazz, dance and classical – and its wide coverage of the arts besides music – theatre, street theatre, installation art, literature, poetry, debate, performance art, children’s entertainment and much else besides – make Belladrum resemble a smaller version of Glastonbury, north of the Highland line.
Bella sold out in 2019, and has sold out each of the last ten years often months before the event, so fans are urged to buy early to avoid disappointment.
Belladrum 2020 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.
2020 line up to be announced.
BELLADRUM TICKET INFO
Due to an unprecedented level of demand Belladrum 2020 has sold out of all adult, child and campervan tickets.
We released tickets one month earlier than in previous years in order to allow our monthly payment plan to be extended to 11 months, a month longer than in previous years. This was done in order to make the festival more affordable to many attendees. Ticket prices were also frozen at 2019 levels.
We have held back 1,000 adult tickets which will be put on sale for diehard fans of artists featured in its first headliner announcement which will be later in the year.
To confirm, the same number of tickets/allocations went on sale for 2020 as went on for 2019.
Please note there were over 1,000 unused kids tickets for the festival this year which had they been returned, could have found a lovely home.
I don’t have any tickets yet for Bella 2020. What can I do?
Any returned tickets will be made available for resale on the 1st October via our ticketing agent Skiddle. This resale is for RETURNED tickets ONLY so the volume available will depend if/how many people opt to return their tickets. The monthly resale process will then continue to run on the 1st of every month up until the event, working on the same parameters.
As always we urge anyone who has missed out on tickets not to fall for offers for ticket scammers and to only buy tickets via Skiddle’s resale function when live or physical tickets via Twickets.
