2021 really can’t come soon enough. Our favourite music festival bar none Black Deer has just announced some new additions to an already fairly impressive line-up, including Lucinda Williams, Drive-By Truckers and Canadian cowboy Colter Wall. They’ve also released their day splits which you can see below.
Alongside the newly announced additions, they’ll be joined by Midlands-via-Senegal modern soul singing sensation Jordan Mackampa, Philadelphia/L.A. vintage folk-rockers Mt. Joy and critically acclaimed two-time Native American Music Award winner Samantha Crain. The stars of the Live Fire BBQ showcase, featuring Sam Evans & Shauna Guinn of Hang Fire Kitchen, BBC Food regular Genevieve Taylor, Ready Steady Cook’s Romy Gill and Countrywoodsmoke’s Marcus Bawdon have also been announced.
The festival will be inviting 1,500 NHS and key workers as guests next year: “With some members of the Black Deer team having been personally affected by the pandemic and having seen first-hand the incredible work and sacrifices made by so many, they have decided to show their gratitude.”
The three-day festival takes place on 18th-20th June 2021, returning to Eridge Park, Kent featuring major artists including Wilco, The Waterboys, Robert Plant and The Dead South. Full weekend tickets and day tickets are on sale here.
