Black Deer Festival announces initial line-up for debut year

Eridge Park in Kent is the site of the UK's newest (and biggest?) Americana & country music festival. Deer Park Festival has pulled out all the stops with its first announcement with live tour-de-force Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit leading a set of headliners that includes Iron & Wine and Passenger.

Also announced are Brit country sisters Ward Thomas, blues legend Eric Bibb, Oklahoma's John Moreland, roots rockers The Americans, along with Juanita Stein, Cornwall's William The Conquerer, CC Smugglers, and Darren Eedens & the Slim Pickin's. All in all that's a surprisingly high calibre set of acts.

In addition to the music the festival is bringing the best of Americana to Kent's finest park, including the best of Americana culture, custom motorcyles, the food of Americana. There's a huge amount to get excited about.

Taking place over the weekend of the 22nd to 24th June at Eridge Park in Kent, tickets are on sale now at the festival website. To keep up to date with festival news you can follow it on Twitter or like it on Facebook. Or follow us on Twitter for all updates.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
