Friday June 21st – Friday August 2nd 2019
Black Deer is Unique.
With female co-founders, a breath-taking location in the garden of England and a passion for all things Americana, the award-winning boutique independent event offers a festival experience like no other.
Its founders are no strangers to the UK’s events industry - having produced and directed much-loved festivals with music legends like Bob Dylan, The Eagles and Neil Young - and have a lifelong love affair with country music and the authentic Americana aesthetic. This compelling blend of originality, experience and passion has shaped Black Deer into an exciting and emerging force on the UK festival scene.
Heading into its second year, following a ‘Best New Festival on the Block’ triumph at the Association of Independent Festival Awards, the three-day celebration of Americana has remained true to cultivating a community of spirit and independence where the lines between artists, supporters and promoters disappears.
Black Deer exists to stay true to the communities, cultures, storytellers and memories that inhabit this indefinable world. You’ll find artists like cerebral alt-country rockers Band Of Horses, Australian roots heroes John Butler Trio, cult icon Neko Case, folk singing sisters The Staves, country legend Kris Kristofferson and Grammy-winning blues star Fantastic Negrito at Black Deer in 2019.
The festival is a living breathing demonstration of what Americana and country music can be, a soundtrack to this independent way of life, across seven dedicated stages, each with the highest production values. You’ll find live music scattered throughout Black Deer’s spectacular and unspoilt landscape, helping to set the perfect scene.
Kids can climb to the top of ancient old oak trees, build a wild west town from the ground up and listen to stories around the campfire with our cowboys at The Outpost, while adults can disappear into the moody and atmospheric late-night bars and learn how to do the Texan two-step or listen to raucous and heavy blues. There’s also the best in smokehouse and BBQ cooking to enjoy, as Black Deer welcomes celebrated chefs from the US and the UK, alongside artisan wares, quality craftsmanship and custom-built motorcycles that help light up this lifestyle.
Music, food, lifestyle; all the experiences Black Deer deliver present this culture at its most visceral. The event has an atmosphere that must be seen in to be believed and enjoyed… join us on our journey into the heart of Americana.
