SEVEN EXPERIENCES NOT TO MISS…

It’s hard to believe it was 2019 when we last gathered in the deer park to celebrate all things Americana. It’s been a tough few years for everyone, but that’s why we can’t wait to get together with you all in June to enjoy the biggest Americana party yet! We know we have a lot of first timers with us this summer and we’re so excited for you to experience all things Black Deer, so with that in mind we’ve put together a handy list of can’t-miss activities for you to get ready for. And if you’re a Black Deer regular, why not share this list with friends to entice them to join you at the UK’s best new festival…
 
 

GOSPEL BRUNCH

Picked out by the likes of The Telegraph and Hello Magazine as a reason why Black Deer is unmissable, our traditional Gospel Brunch is the reason to be wide awake on Sunday morning. Sunday isn’t a day of rest at Black Deer – it’s a day for great food and righteous music! Make sure you don’t miss out on the vibes, music and (free!) food…
 
 

AXE THROWING

It’s not just for lumberjacks! There’s nothing quite like hurling metal at timber to relieve the stresses of another hard year, so why not join in with the ancient and noble tradition (under ‘axe’pert supervision, of course!) and let off some steam in our wild and spectacular deer park. Come on, get back to nature with us…
 
 

CHILLI EATING COMPETITION

The Live Fire area is always one of the most popular parts of our land and this summer will be no different – especially when the chilli eating competition returns! Sure, there’s the best in bespoke BBQ on offer, but what’s an Americana playground without a competition to see who can shovel the hottest, most delicious chilli into their mouths as we all look on with a nice cool drink under the sun?!
 
 

VISIT ARKANSAS

You will have seen our focus on Arkansas in collaboration with official destination partner Visit Arkansas. The good news is that they’re coming to join us at the deer park and are bringing the best of The Natural State with them! There’ll be giveaways, food, drink and live performances from some of the best Arkansas artists we’ve already introduced you to. After all, a slice of the authentic Americana experience is what you come to Black Deer for…
 
 

JACKSON SOCIAL

“Guests can order cocktails, watch live performances and dance to late-night DJs,” says The Telegraph… and they’re right. There’s also detailed styling, comfy seating, delicious bites served from the kitchen bar (to purchase) and luxury loos awaiting those who choose to go to Jackson…

BLACK DEER SONGWRITER SESSIONS

Our Songwriter Sessions are the place to experience the true magic of Americana and roots music. Previously artists such as Billy Bragg, Larkin Poe and Ward Thomas have illuminated the Black Deer Songwriter Sessions stage with collaborations, storytelling and intimate acoustic performances of their most famous songs. 2022 will be no different and we’ll be revealing the names of the great performers taking part very soon…
 
 

THE ROADHOUSE

The part of our land that is home to The Roadhouse is where you’ll feel the growl of the Americana counter-culture. It’s rock ‘n’ roll all the way with a showcase of some of the country’s top custom motorcycle builds and meaty trucks, amongst a backdrop of lifestyle vendors that’ll leave you fully kitted out and converted when the weekend is over. And the music? The Picturebooks are already announced and more are coming soon…
