With live music set to explode next summer, 2022 will see the biggest and best Black Deer yet, with more names still to be announced. Showcasing music of an independent spirit across multiple stages, exquisite live fire cooking from the UK’s best smokehouse chefs, layers of Americana-inspired lifestyle and custom motorcycle culture with Harley Davidson, Black Deer is a family staycation destination with a community ethos.

With further big name artists to be revealed, and the announcement of the festival’s Live Fire and The Roadhouse offerings to follow, Black Deer also remain committed to giving 1500 tickets to NHS Key Workers for the event, with some members of the Black Deer team having been personally affected by the pandemic. Having seen first-hand the incredible work and sacrifices made by so many, they decided to show their gratitude and thanks by inviting 1500 NHS and key workers as guests to Black Deer Festival 2021… this will be matched in 2022.
