Award-winning songwriter Jake Bugg is the latest artist announced for Kent’s, Black Deer Festival. Joining Van Morrison, The Waterboys, Imelda May, Drive-By Truckers, Foy Vance, Courtney Marie Andrews and Wilco, Jake Bugg will be performing in the spectacular surroundings of England’s oldest Deer Park in June 2022.
The announcement follows the release of Jake’s fifth full length album, Saturday Night, Sunday Morning this summer featuring his euphoric single All I Need and supported by the likes of BBC Radio 1, Radio X and the The Graham Norton show. While Jake is no stranger to a festival stage, Black Deer will be his first UK festival appearance in 2022. Fans can expect a set that fuses his laid-back gritty swagger, refreshing sense of humour and seasoned knowledge beyond his years.
