2020 Artist Announcement

We’re excited to reveal to you the first set of incredible artists playing Black Deer 2020.

Who better to share some words and their excitement on this first artist announcement then the festival founders themselves – Gill & Debs…
But first…
Here’s a nice little message Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy left us:

“Black Deer is the kind of close-knit destination festival where Wilco fits in best. We’re looking forward to it.”

Over to Debs & Gill.

‘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!”


Best-priced tickets will sell-out soon – but there’s still just enough time, if you’re quick, to take advantage of our fantastic payment plans and group deal savings. Check them out here.
See you in the Deer Park!
