We’re just a few days away from Black Deer Festival down in Kent, and there’s plenty happening on the opening day.

With so many artists to choose from, it can be tough to work out who you’re going to see (and still have time to explore the rest of the site). So we’ve put together a handy guide to help you catch all your favourite artists.

Whilst the main stage isn’t open on the first day, there’s still plenty of great live music happening throughout the afternoon and evening. Striking Matches will headline The Ridge Stage, whilst elsewhere there are performances from the likes of Sarah Darling, The Wandering Hearts, Robert Vincent and Sonia Leigh.
