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.
