The award-winning Belladrum Tartan Heart music festival will return to Beauly, Inverness-shire this summer to reaffirm its reputation as “the friendliest, wackiest, most inclusive festival in Scotland.”

Last year saw the likes of Jess Glynne, Chvrches and Elbow wowing crowds outside Inverness, and this year's festival line-up is looking no less star-stacked.

The bulk of the tickets for the festival went on sale back in August, with every last one vanishing in the space of a week.

However, those who missed out first time around were given another shot on 6 January 2020, when another wave of tickets were made available via re-sale.

When is Belladrum 2020?

Next year's festival will take place from Thursday 30 July to Saturday 1 August 2020.

This makes it a week earlier than previous years, something which fans have pushed for to separate it from the Black Isle Show.

Who is playing?

As ever, Belladrum has recruited an exciting mixture of Scottish and foreign talent to rock out this summer.

Scotland's own Emeli Sandé will headlines alongside the legendary Nile Rodgers, with other big names like Passenger, The Magic Numbers and Stiff Little Fingers also on the bill.

How do I get tickets?

The main lot of tickets for the 2020 festival sold out in a record breaking 72 hours, marking the 12th year in a row that Belladrum has done so.

A final batch of 1000 tickets went on sale at 10am on Monday 6 January via Skiddle via a lottery system to ensure everyone has a fair chance of getting tickets.

Belladrum have advised that they expect more tickets to become available for resale further down the line, so fans who missed out this time shouldn't give up hope.
