Can you order some sunshine in please?

Can't wait. Will you be putting up info on the Coop VIP area and how to get in (for example my wife and i currently share a coop membership), and info on the Glens Vodka area, and presumably there isn't a Feasting Tent this year etc etc? The website seems very sparse compared to the amount of information available in years gone by. Thanks.

Cost of tokens this yr?

Hearing Gerry cinnamon has been cancelled because of the organisers telling him the wrong day?! Joke

Breakfasts will be served again in the Coffee Shop in Kiltarlity Village. Follow the signs! 😁

Anyone want to gift me a ticket? Cheers.

Patrons wishing to see main stage acts on the Thursday of the festival will need a three day ticket. The Thursday line-up includes: Sister Sledge, Feeder, Louis Berry, Scooty & The Skyhooks and Torridon.

Saturday day tickets are sold out as are campervan/caravan tickets. Hook-up tickets are still available to campervan/caravan ticket holders. There will be a resale of sold-out ticket categories via the tickets page on the Bella web site on Thursday 8 June at 10am when returned tickets will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Printed Bella tickets are available online at www.tartanheartfestival.co.uk and from the usual retail outlets.

These include: Inverness–The Ironworks, Eden Court Box Office, Caffery’s and Hootananny’s; Dingwall–Sweet Treats; Edinburgh and Glasgow–TicketsScotland; Aberdeen–Aberdeen Performing Arts; Elgin–Sound & Vision; Beauly–Morrisons; Kiltarlity Post office.

Thursday car parks and camping areas will be open from 0800 again after this year’s successful effort to encourage patrons to arrive in a steadier flow throughout the day to reduce traffic congestion. Arenas will open from 1300 on the Thursday. When buying tickets on-line with Skiddle, Bella patrons are being given an opportunity to contribute to the Archie Foundation, a charity which is helping to improve children’s hospital facilities in the Highlands. Bella sold out again in 2016 for the eighth year in a row so fans are urged to buy early to avoid disappointment.

Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival 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.
