After months of considered efforts, it is with deep regret that we are today, announcing the postponement of the 2021 Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival.
Whilst the vaccine programme seems to be progressing well and there are signs of light at the end of that very long tunnel, we simply don’t feel there is enough time for this to happen ahead of this year’s festival. We don’t want to deliver a compromised event and as time swiftly moves on, we feel there are too many unknown’s as to how the footprint of any event may look like this summer. We have been working closely with the rest of the UK event industry in lengthy conversations with the Westminster Government to provide an insurance policy for our industry. Without this, the risk of pushing on with planning with no certainty on what the future holds are simply too huge.
Our COMMUNITY in every sense of the word is at the beating heart of our festival and with that in mind, we feel that postponing to 2022 is the safest decision for that whole community.
We have set the dates for the 2022 Festival and these will be: Thursday 28th July, Friday 29th July, Saturday 30th July.
As a team we are devasted and we thank you for your ongoing support for the event. We will be making our public statement at 5pm so we ask respectfully that his message remains confidential until that time.
All our love and speak soon
