TICKETS to Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival have sold out for a fourth year running weeks before the event is due to take place at Beauly, Inverness-shire, on August 3rd and 4th.

Other than upgrades, no further tickets to the ninth edition of the festival of any type are available, including child 12 and under tickets.

Upgrade tickets from Saturday to Weekend (£30) and from Campervan/Caravan to Campervan/Caravan Electrical Hook-up (£80) are still available from

“We are really delighted that, in what has been a tough year for live music sales across the UK against a background of astringent economic recession, Belladrum has sold out in advance yet again,” said festival promoter Joe Gibbs.

“That we have is a tribute to the loyal audience who have supported us in gradually increasing numbers over the years, to the very talented artists that have provided music and performing arts to the events throughout its history, and to the amazing team of people who work on the festival and make it all happen each August. Bonnets off to you, one and all.”

Bella fans wanting to buy or sell printed tickets to Belladrum on the secondary market this year are being urged to avoid scammers on social networking and e-commerce sites by using an honest broker exchange set up by the Association or Independent Festivals, of which Bella is a member.

Tickets may be sold at face value and bought with a 10% booking fee and postage costs from The Ticket Trust

Bella’s 2012 line-up includes headliners and Scots indie stars Travis and Liverpool rockers The Wombats plus numerous other acts.

And this year’s theme at the festival is ‘royalty’ and as usual, thousands of audience members are expected to come in fancy dress.
