A brand new festival will take place this year in Kent – the ‘Black Deer Festival of Americana and Country’. Iron and Wine and Passenger have been named as headliners of the event, which takes place on the weekend of June 22nd to the 24th. Of particular interest to readers of Belles and Gals will be the inclusion of Ward Thomas, a duo we named as our artists of the year in 2016 and who are nominated again this year.
Ward Thomas – ““We are really excited to play at The Black Deer Festival this June, it is so encouraging to see more country festivals pop up in the UK, and we have a feeling this is going to be a special one!!! We’ve recently been working on new material which makes it even more exciting”
The full list of initial acts released are as follows:
Iron & Wine
Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit (UK Festival Exclusive)
William the Conqueror
Darren Eedens and the Slim Pickins’
The festival takes place in Eridge Park in Kent and tickets are available here – www.blackdeerfestival.com/
