BELLA NOMINATED FOR THE FAMILY FESTIVAL AWARD
Every year, there seem to be more and more children at festivals, with increasingly impressive areas and facilities for kids reflecting the rise. Games, workshops, kid zones and activities for youngsters all combine to make their weekend a memorable one – and often a much easier one for their mums and dads. Which festival was the most enjoyable for kids and parents this year? THIS HAS TO BE BELLA – SCOTLAND’S ONLY REAL FAMILY FESTIVAL!
…AND THE GRASS ROOTS FESTIVAL AWARD
Often the best small festivals spring from an organic labour of love and a long-time dream which has been shared by thousands more. These festivals should be celebrated, not just for the courage and vision shown by their organisers, but also because they never forget where they’ve come from, supporting their local communities and new music along the way whilst retaining an independent spirit and resisting commercial saturation. HELP US WIN THIS AGAIN!
…AND BEST MEDIUM SIZED FESTIVAL
Festivals nominated for this award generally started life much smaller, but have evolved upwards from their original roots due to their popularity and success in filling a growing niche.
With a unique identity, following, and intimacy, many outdoor music fans think middle-capacity festivals get the perfect blend of atmosphere and scale.
But which one did the business this year? VOTE FOR BELLA!
… AND BEST TOILET
Whether it’s the pongy portaloos, the lingering longdrops or the unpleasant urinals, all festival toilets tang, but some stink more than others. But which festival boasted the cleanest cans and the best ratio of toilets to person? THEY WERE CLEANER THAN EVER AT BELLA!
…AND LAU FOR THE VIRTUAL FESTIVALS CRITICS’ CHOICE AWARD
Lau have been nominated for this award for their performance at Bella’ 09. The award is designed to celebrate those special acts who added something a little extra to their festival show. It could be comedy, nostalgia, crowd interaction or just that ‘secret ingredient’ – basically something that sets them apart from other performers as a real crowd pleaser.
