Bella fans have a chance to secure themselves ‘a place in the fun’ on Thursday 29th September when tickets for the 2012 event go on sale from 9am.

Tickets for the ninth staging of the festival, which takes place 3rd and 4th August 2012, go on sale at 0900 from in the form of E-tickets and a limited number of hard tickets via . First 250 tickets will be held at this year’s price. Thereafter tickets will be £95 each (+ booking fee). Campervan/Caravan tickets and Child 12 & Under tickets will also be available.

Bella has sold out the last three years and in 2011 the festival sold out months before the event so fans are urged to buy early to avoid disappointment. Problems with ticket scammers in the lead-up to the 2011 event has meant that the bulk of 2012 will be sold as e-tickets which are considerably more difficult to scam.

“We will still be issuing some hard tickets for mainly local outlets to sell but these will be very much in the minority this year,” said festival promoter Joe Gibbs. “It’s a shame that we have to concentrate on e-tickets because it limits the number of outlets we can use, but the dishonesty of a few unscrupulous characters has forced our hand. People should avoid buying off social networks, gumtree, ebay etc.”

About MUSIC NEWS Scotland

MUSIC NEWS Scotland was born 12 years ago when dial up broadband was still around and desktop pc’s ruled. So we did what had been done since 220 AD in China and every month put ink on a printing plate, ran some paper over it and hey presto MNS was published (okay it was a wee bit more involved than that, but the basic principle was the same!) Move on to 2011 with high speed broadband and access to the www everywhere and the future was catching up with us rapidly. The volume of information flowing into MNS HQ was more than our monthly issue could cope with, and more and more Scottish music stories of great value were being spiked (an old press term not a dodgy drink). Reaching our vast number of readers in every conceivable nook and cranny of Scotland has always been a challenge monthly but to do that more often was physically not feasible. So we have doffed oor tam o’ shanter to the future and MNS is now a weekly digital publication, and not only weekly now but twice the number of pages than our old printed friend! Along with our weekly GIGguide and FESTIVALS! supplement we are now producing 72 pages of Scottish music news (and only music news) each and EVERY week:) We remain as true as ever to our launch roots of 8 years ago though - MUSIC NEWS Scotland supports all Scottish bands and performers no matter what style of music you’re involved in. Our aim is to circulate music industry news and to help to raise the profile of musicians and improve communications between genres. To help achieve this copies of MUSIC NEWS Scotland are emailed to key industry contacts throughout the UK. Thank you for your support over the last 8 years and please raise a glass to our digital future with you all. Thanks for your support, The MNS team!
