Thursday 28th July marks the return of one of Scotland’s most celebrated music festivals, the Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival.

“Bella” has built a reputation for its eclectic line-ups and all-ages entertainment and has also won a string of awards including the Grassroots Festival Award at the UK Festival Awards.  With this being the first Bella since 2019 it’s easily one of the most eagerly anticipated Scottish festivals of the year.

This year’s sell out festival sees Nile Rodgers & Chic, Van Morrison and Emilie Sandé headline alongside The Fratellis, Passenger, Shed Seven, Ibibio Sound Machine, Edwin Collins and more.

In addition to the more well known and celebrated names, Belladrum always serves up an eclectic line-up of new and emerging artists across all stages.  With that in mind Netsounds have compiled a playlist of acts that we recommend you try and catch over the weekend.

We will be capturing some of these acts in session during the festival so be sure to subscribe to our YouTube, Instagram and Facebook pages to catch the sessions when they land.
