The Press and Journal (Moray) - - LOCAL NEWS - BY MICHELLE HEN­DER­SON

A world-renowned Scot­tish singer song­writer has been con­firmed as next year’s head­liner for the city’s sum­mer mu­sic fes­ti­val.

Amy Mac­don­ald is set to re­turn to cen­tre stage at next year’s Bel­ladrum Tar­tan Heart Fes­ti­val, eight years af­ter her de­but per­for­mance.

The Glas­gow-born mu­si­cian is sched­uled to head­line Thurs­day night’s main stage dur­ing the two-day event from Au­gust 2 to Au­gust 4.

Bel­ladrum pro­moter Joe Gibbs said: “This re­ally is the life now that we can wel­come back Scot­land’s own won­der­ful Amy Mac­don­ald to the fes­ti­val for the first time since 2010, since when she has gone from strength to strength. The Bella crowd are among her great­est fans.”

Other artists con­firmed to be per­form­ing in­clude Fright­ened Rab­bit and X Fac­tor con­tes­tant Lucy Sprag­gan, as well as The LaFon­taines.

Fes­ti­val favourites Colonel Mustard & The Di­jon Five will ap­pear on the main stage as well.

Mean­while, Fright­ened Rab­bit will play an in­ti­mate head­line set on the Hot­house – the fes­ti­val’s sec­ond stage, per­form­ing the whole of their al­bum ‘The Mid­night Or­gan Fight’.

Fol­low­ing the tra­di­tion of a fancy dress theme at the event, Bella has an­nounced that ‘Bol­ly­wood’ will be its 2018 theme.

Mr Gibbs added: “We will be bring­ing back the fancy dress pa­rade and prizes in 2018. We’re hop­ing for a riot of Bol­ly­drum ex­hi­bi­tion­ism.”
