Prices have been pegged for early birds at 2012 levels. Booking fees have been reduced on e-tickets and a new ticket deposit scheme has been introduced for customers wishing to buy full weekend tickets in instalments.

Bella has sold out each of the last four years, often months before the event so fans are urged to buy early to avoid disappointment. E-tickets are more customer-friendly and less easy to scam, but printed tickets will also be on sale via the usual retail outlets nearer to Christmas

The 2013 theme is ‘Carnival’, in keeping with the birthday party atmosphere the milestone event is bound to create. “We really hope as many as possible of those people who have supported us in the past will come and celebrate this significant birthday at Bella, but we will also hope to welcome the usual complement of newcomers to the event” said festival promoter Joe Gibbs.

A new video created by Tom Welsh from, Edinburgh, has also gone live on Youtube at with a track from Frightened Rabbit as its soundtrack.

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!
