Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival still holds the number one spot for us in terms of festivals. Not just because it’s homegrown here in the Highlands but beacuse year on year it continues to showcase some of the finest new and emerging acts.

On our new page #DiscoverBella we will be shining a spotlight on the countless brilliant acts futher down the line-up who could be set for much bigger things in the future.

This will be an evolving page showcasing some the best new acts appearing at some of our favourite events.


The Seedlings Stage – Belladrum 2014

The goNORTH Seedlings Stage line-up for Belladrum has been announced. 

As ever we are always drawn to The Seedlings Stage due the fine selection of new and emerging acts that are performing over both days.  This year is no exception so you can fully expect to find us camped out there in August.  We may even be doing “something” in and around The Seedlings Stage…

We believe that headliners on the Friday night are the “headbanging, foot stomping, rip roaring, fireball of fuzz” The Broken Ravens and on Saturday night the raucous, rabble rousing Hector Bizerk.

The North Star Arena for breaking acts is where the goNORTH Seedlings Stage will be located and will also include  ‘The Boatshed Sessions’.  We will have more information to share on the North Star Arena soon.

We’ve got a Bella Mixtape coming soon and I suspect it will feature a fair few of the acts listed below. In fact looking at this stage alone it may well be our most challenging mixtape yet.

The sold out Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival takes place just outside Inverness on  8th and 9th August and we will be there with bells on and possible animal esque attire.  (This year’s theme is wildlife).
