Unprecedented demand for Belladrum 2020

By Gavin Musgrove

Belladrum has cemented its reputation as one of Scotland's best loved music festivals with tickets for 2020 selling out in record time.

Organisers have said there has been an unprecedented level of demand for Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival 2020.

Tickets have sold out for adults, children and campervans within just a few days - nearly 12 months ahead of the 17th edition of the festival next summer from July 30 July to August 1.

This year's festival over the first weekend of August headlined by Elbow, Jess Glynne, Chvrches and Lewis Capaldi sold out the following April.

Bella released tickets one month earlier than in previous years in order to allow its monthly payment plan to be extended to 11 months, a month longer than in previous years.

This was done in order to make the festival more affordable to many attendees. Ticket prices were also frozen at 2019 levels

There is still some hope for those yet to get tickets.

The festival has held back 1,000 which will be put on sale for diehard fans of artists featured in its first headliner announcement which Bella hopes to make towards the end of the year.

Festival spokesman Dougie Brown said: "We deeply appreciate the enthusiasm shown for the festival by our family audience which comes off the back of our most successful edition of the festival yet which happened only just over a week ago.

"We have put the same number of tickets as in 2019 on sale including free kids' tickets and have simply been delighted by how keen our loyal audience is to come back again next year."

Current adult ticket holders will be given preferential treatment with the initial allocation of child tickets being released to them first on a pre-sale link via Skiddle and any unused tickets will be put on general resale shortly afterwards.

Resales will be made available at 10am on October 1 and then continue to take place on the first of each month going forward.

Glamping and Club Clan Bella tickets are also nearly sold out.

The festival has been brought forward a week in 2020 in order not to clash with the Black isle Show and Moy Game Fair but the event still runs Thursday to Saturday.

Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival is an all ages family event and the largest camping and outdoor festival in Scotland.

The organisers have urged those who have missed out on tickets not to fall for offers for ticket scammers and to only buy tickets via Skiddle’s resale function when live or physical tickets via Twickets.
