Last year it was The SIde that were promoted from the Seedlings to the Main Stage, this year we have two local bands making the jump in He Slept on 57 and Iain McLaughlin & The Outsiders.
invernessGiGS has a huge amount of time for Iain McLaughlin & The Outsiders and the promotion to the main stage is a great acknowledgement of the huge amount of effort the band have continued to put into the scene over the last year. They missed out on our ones to watch at Belladrum 2011 and for that we should be shamed.
The other band joining them on the main stage from the seedlings is He Slept on 57, drawing comparison with Twin Atlantic and Biffy Clyro.
He Slept on 57 will open the Garden Stage on Friday August 5th at Belladrum Festival.
Iain McLaughlin & The Outsiders perform on the Garden Stage on Saturday August 6th at Belladrum Festival
