The Proclaimers return to Belladrum to kick off the Thursday night at the 2015 festival.

“I can’t think of a more appropriate act to launch our first year of offering an extra main stage headliner at Bella”

In what has to be the earliest headline for the festival, Messrs Reid take to the Garden stage to headline the recently announced Thursday night at the festival, a decade after they last topped the bill at the event.

Festival promoter Joe Gibbs commented “I can’t think of a more appropriate act to launch our first year of offering an extra main stage headliner at Bella” . He adds “The Proclaimers gave the event the support it needed from a major Scottish act in its difficult second year. Who better, now, to launch our new third night on the main stage?”

The Proclaimers last played the area when they played the Eden Court and BFest in 2012, however their profile continues to rise, obviously aided by the success of the musical ,and film, of Sunshine on Leith.

The Proclaimers know how to hit the road with their last two year world tour culminating in being the first Scottish band to headline Glasgow’s Hydro Arena back in 2013.

The guys plan to return to touring in 2015 to promote their new album which they start recording with their band and producer Dave Eringa (Manic Street Preachers, Idlewild, Wilco Johnson & Roger Daltrey, The Who) later this month.

Craig and Charlie announced “We are absolutely delighted to heading back to Belladrum after 10 years since we first played there in 2005. It has been fantastic to see the festival grow from strength to strength and we look forward immensely to returning and playing the Garden Stage next August.”

The only other band to be announced so far is Bella got Talent 2014 winner Junebug.
