Buy Bella 2013 tickets now to ensure you don’t miss out

TICKETS to the tenth staging of Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival went on sale this week – and prices have been pegged for early birds at 2012 levels.

The festival takes place next year on August 2nd and 3rd in the beautiful Highland surroundings of Belladrum Estate, near Beauly.

Belladrum has sold out each of the last four years, often months before the event, so fans are urged to buy early to avoid disappointment.

E-tickets are more customer-friendly and less easy to scam, but printed tickets will also be on sale via the usual retail outlets nearer to Christmas. Booking fees have also been reduced on e-tickets, and a new ticket deposit scheme has been introduced for customers wishing to buy full weekend tickets in instalments.

Full weekend, child (12 and under), campervan/caravan and electrical hook-up e-tickets can be purchased by going to the ticket link on the festival’s website at

The 2013 theme is ‘Carnival’, in keeping with the birthday party atmosphere the milestone event is bound to create.

“We really hope as many as possible of those people who have supported us in the past will come and celebrate this significant birthday at Bella, but we will also hope to welcome the usual complement of newcomers to the event,” said festival promoter Joe Gibbs.
