Black Deer Festival, Europe’s premier Americana playground, has revealed further festival favourites as part of its ‘three years in the making’ 2022 comeback line-up. The UK’s ‘Best New Festival’ takes place in the wild and spectacular surroundings of the oldest deer park in England, and will welcome Van Morrison, Wilco (Uk Exclusive), The Waterboys, Foy Vance, Drive-By Truckers, The Dead South and many more to its stages next summer.
Now the “utterly irresistible” (UK Festival Guide) event has also announced those legendary names will be joined by Imelda May, Ward Thomas, Courtney Marie Andrews, Shovels & Rope, Shooter Jennings, The Cuban Brothers and more from 17th-19th June 2022.
"I have been looking forward to bringing over my band and playing Black Deer since 2019 for the 2020 season...it's finally here after a long wait. We can't wait to see everyone in 2022." – Shooter Jennings

“As Lovers Of Americana And Roots Music We're Thrilled To Be Playing Black Deer Festival And Looking Forward To Making Some Magic In The Country With You.” - Mike Scott, The Waterboys
With a surge in sales since the announcement of 2022 and their best-priced Tier 3 tickets set to sell out in weeks, organisers are excited to welcome people back through the gates for the first time since the acclaimed 2019 festival. Since making a name for itself for its unique offering of laid back authentic Americana, the best in street food and forest school style children’s activities, Black Deer Festival hasn’t stood still. With live music set to explode next summer, 2022 will see the biggest and best Black Deer yet, with more names still to be announced.
Showcasing music of an independent spirit across multiple stages, exquisite live fire cooking from the UK’s best smokehouse chefs, layers of Americana-inspired lifestyle and custom motorcycle culture with Harley Davidson, Black Deer is a family staycation destination with a community ethos.
With further big name artists to be revealed, and the announcement of the festival’s Live Fire and The Roadhouse offerings to follow, Black Deer also remain committed to giving 1500 tickets to NHS Key Workers for the event, with some members of the Black Deer team having been personally affected by the pandemic. Having seen first-hand the incredible work and sacrifices made by so many, they decided to show their gratitude and thanks by inviting 1500 NHS and key workers as guests to Black Deer Festival 2021… this will be matched in 2022.
