UK Chart topping rapper Professor Green leads the next wave of artists announced for Belladrum 2018.

Acclaimed Brighton indie-pop quintet, Fickle Friends and the exquisite and poetic Isaac Gracie also join the Belladrum Line-Up.

Fickle Friends will be perfect summer pop for when the sun shines at Bella… and it will.  The band released their vibrant hook laiden synth pop debut album, “Are You Someone Else” earlier this month.

The emotive Isaac Gracie could be one of the highlights and spellbinding moments of the weekend.  The London born troubador sang in the Ealing Abbey Choir and started writing songs when he was just 14.  Sound wise he is comparable to Jeff Buckly who is one of his many influences along with Bob Dylan, Radiohead, Pearl Jam and Tim Buckley.

Professor Green released his debut, ‘The Green EP’ in 2006 and since then he has gone on to have 4 top 10 singles including the smash number 1 hit ‘Read All About It’ feat. Emeli Sande.

With a sell-out 15 date UK tour under their belts and new single ‘Charlotte St’, Scottish rock act Hunter & The Bear will also join the line-up.  They are joined by anthemic indie and impressive live four-piece, The Snuts.

Belladrum Promoter, Joe Gibbs said:  “Just when you thought it was safe to go out and we’d announced all our line-up, here we are with another bunch of beauties. We are really excited to have Prof Green headlining the Hothouse Stage on the Saturday night on his first appearance at Bella. The rest of the artists announced are the icing on what is shaping up to be the most delicious Bella cake ever.”

These artists join the previously announced Thursday night headliner Amy Macdonald,  Friday night headliner, Paloma Faith and Saturday night headliners, Primal Scream.
