Black Deer Festival About

 

Black Deer is on a mission to bring the real Americana & Country music, and way of life, to the UK – expressed through a unique music festival.

 
Black Deer is a festival born from passion, and built from experience – thanks to its founders, who are no strangers to the festival and events scene, having produced and directed some of the UK’s most loved featuring legendary Americana artists like Neil Young, The Eagles and Bob Dylan. And for whom, Americana and country music has become a lifelong love affair.
 
It is this compelling blend of passion, experience and love, that has shaped a festival vision unrelenting in its quest for staying true – true to the communities, cultures, storytellers and memories that make up this most authentic of worlds.
 
At Black Deer then, you’ll find the best of a bygone rural era, made relevant, right now. With wholesome food & drink, artisan wares and custom-built motorcycles, just some of the things – in addition to the music – paying homage to the cultural heritage of America.
 
But more so, Black Deer is a community. A community accessible to all. A community providing opportunities to all (such as the deserving students of Supajam who have their own stage). And importantly, a community inspiring to all (the motivation behind the Young Folk part of the festival).
 

Black Deer is a celebration of a way of life that is both timely and timeless.
