Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival news: VENUS FLYTRAP LINE-UP ANNOUNCED…

Latest update from Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival :


The curtains have come up on the 2019 line-up of Bella’s Venus Flytrap Big Top. A firm favourite for many at Belladrum Festival, the Venus Flytrap stage features an eclectic and electrifying programme of cabaret, music, comedy, big shows and so much more.

You are invited to join the Glasgow Festival of Burlesque team for a late-night dose of bumps, grinds, shimmiys and shakes from some of the finest burlesque performers from around the galaxy! One of The Evening Times top 10 shows at The Edinburg Fringe in 2018 Bugle Boys – A Salute To The Andrews Sisters join us for night of The Andrews Sisters inspired cabaret and comedy.

Extra-terrestrial noisemakers Henge join us to celebrate our sci-fi theme. Making earth their home in recent years they are set to entice more followers or ‘Raveling’s’ to their fusion of alien electronic dance music, prog and psychedelia. With their feet firmly on solid ground Gimme Abba will have everyone singing along with all of their favourite Abba hits, while the audience will truly become the stars at mass singalongs with the one and only Massaoke Scotland.

World Music collective Suns Of Arqawill present their Scottish Dub Operatta THE WOLF OF BADENOCH. Based on the story of Alexander Stewart, Earl of Buchan who burned down Elgin Cathedral in 1390 this is set to be a highlight of the weekend.

We will also have a packed comedy line-up over the weekend, full details will be announced shortly but expect to see some of the most exciting names on the Scottish comedy circuit.

Other acts appearing over the weekend are Highland Voices CHOIR, firm favourites PBW WRESTLING, hypnotist Grant Saunders Hypnotist, the legend that is MR BOOM, Magician Dean Spruce Magician, and Circus Skills workshops with Trapeze Entertainment.

2019 will see the re-introduction of the BELLADRUM FAMILY FANCY DRESS COMPETITION. We have partnered with NessCon – Inverness Comic Con, the Highland’s very own Comic Convention who will judge this years’ entries! Prizes (including tickets to the 2020 festival) will be awarded to best male and best female outfits and a special prize for best family or group outfits.

We loved our virtual festival on Saturday but want our industry to return to normality as soon as it safe to do so.

Without government support in place until this can be done, there are thousands of companies and freelancers who are integral to the delivery of events, concerts and festivals up and down the country who may not be able to survive.

We had an absolute blast on Saturday sharing Tartan Home Festival with you all. 🤩 The reaction from you, our wonderful Bella family was just overwhelming and we had such fun producing a virtual Bella to stream to your screens. It meant everything to us to see people creating their own mini Bella’s all over the world from Australia to Dubai!🌎

Saturday’s show would not have been possible without this fabulous crew😍 and we want to say a HUGE thank you to👇

🙌 Nicola McAlley and Jamie Macdonald our hosting dynamic duo. Their energy and fun kept the programme running all day and night. Pineapples will forever remind us of you both!🍍🧞‍♂️

🙌 Paul Campbell Photography and Mike Webster our video and editing supermen! 💪Days of pre records and many painstaking hours editing to deliver the best content for our virtual programme.

🙌David and Larry our technical whizzes based in London. Your skill and patience meant the day was slick and seamless, wow!

🙌 BBC ALBA for sharing the day with us and producing two really special Belladrum programmes which captured the true heart and essence of our festival.❤️

🙌Every artist, performer, poet, partner and trader who joined us on Saturday. You completely entered into the spirit of this year and we loved that we could share this with everyone.🎪🤹‍♂️🎻🎸

🙌Last but not least – Dougie Brown, Lesley Strang, Claire Clark & the wider Belladrum dream team! For the hours creating, brain storming, filming, script writing and producing this stand alone virtual festival, well done.👏

What a day! It was brilliant, THANK YOU!😘🥳🤩
