Black Deer Festival 2020: Wilco, The Waterboys and Courtney Marie Andrews among first names

Black Deer Festival has announced the first wave of acts for the 2020 line-up.

Topping the bill is Wilco and The Waterboys. They will be joined by a line-up that includes The Milk Carton Kids, Courtney Marie Andrews, The Felice Brothers, The Secret Sisters, Jack Broadbent, Madison Violet, The East Pointers, Midnight Skyracer, Native Harrow, The Dead Show, Irish Mythen and Amy Montgomery.

Founders of the Black Deer Festival, Gill Tee and Debs Shilling are thrilled to be announcing the first artists: ‘We’re both so excited to reveal the first set of artists for Black Deer 2020. We’ve listened closely to the passionate Black Deer audience and are proud to be bringing them not only the artists they already love, but artists they’re going to love. The loyalty our fans have shown us is just incredible and we’d like to thank everyone who bought a ticket without even a single name being announced! Heading into our third year, there’s an ever-growing sense that we’re building something very special and our team are working hard to deliver the best Black Deer Festival yet. There’s established names such as Wilco and The Waterboys, returning heroes like The Dead South and Irish Mythen and exciting emerging talent in Courtney Marie Andrews and Native Harrow in this first announcement. We can’t wait to add to this great line-up over the coming weeks and months and are looking forward to seeing everyone enjoying the atmosphere in our spectacular deer park next June!”

Black Deer Festival allows fans to immerse themselves in the Americana and Country community, music, food, storytelling and culture. The festival organisers have built on the success of their first two years and are now ready to announce the first wave of artists for 2020.

Wilco’s appearance at the festival is an exclusive for the South of England.

Black Deer Festival takes place at Eridge Park, Kent from 19th to 21st June 2020. Tickets and more information can be found at https://blackdeerfestival.com.
