Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival has been cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The music and arts event, held near Inverness, followed Glasgow’s TRNSMT in announcing a postponement on Friday.

Going ahead with the festival, which was scheduled for July 30 to August 1, “simply isn’t going to be possible”, organisers said.

A statement said: “It is with an extremely heavy heart that we must confirm that Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival 2020 has been cancelled due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

“We had been progressing with plans to deliver our 17th outing but as the pandemic plays out across the UK, it has now become clear that delivering the event in 2020 simply isn’t going to be possible.”

Plans are in place for the festival to return on July 29 to 31 next year.
