Black Deer is unique. With female co-founders, a breath-taking location in the garden of England and a passion for all things Americana, this award-winning boutique event offers a festival experience like no other. Its founders are no strangers to the UK’s events industry – having produced and directed much-loved festivals with music legends like Bob Dylan, The Eagles and Neil Young – and have a lifelong love affair with country music and the authentic Americana aesthetic. This compelling blend of originality, experience and passion has shaped Black Deer into an exciting and emerging force on the UK festival scene.
Now into its second year, following a ‘Best New Festival on the Block’ triumph at the Association of Independent Festival Awards and ‘Music Event of the Year’ at the Event Production Awards, the three-day celebration of Americana has remained true to cultivating a community of spirit and independence where the lines between artists, supporters and promoters disappear. Indeed, Black Deer exists to stay true to the communities, cultures, storytellers and memories that inhabit this indefinable world.
