goNORTH Director for Music Shaun Arnold
goNORTH was launched in 2001 to provide a platform for artists from the north of Scotland to showcase for music industry and media representatives on their own patch. Originally hosted in several venues on Aberdeen’s Belmont Street, goNORTH briefly relocated to Dundee, before settling in Scotland’s most northerly city, Inverness. The event has since developed into one of the country’s leading Creative Industries Festivals, covering a much wider remit from Screen and Broadcast to Designer Fashion and Publishing. Each year, goNORTH brings a world class programme of panels, workshops, film screenings, training opportunities, Q&A sessions, camera equipment and special effects showcases, and a global marathon of live music showcases to the north of Scotland.
The live showcases feature contemporary and cutting edge music of all genres, highlighting the best emerging talent from Scotland, the rest of the UK, and a selection of international contenders.
Belladrum have also confirmed that Willie Campbell's band The Open Day Rotation have been added to the line-up on the Saturday of Belladrum. Former frontman of Astrid and member of The Reindeer Section, Willie Campbell unveilled his new album 'toxic good, toxic bad' earlier this month.

Belladrum 2012 takes place in the beautiful Highland surroundings of Belladrum Estate, near Beauly in Inverness-shire. The independent festival is known for its eclectic line-ups, its off beat non-musical entertainments and its all-ages approach.
