Black Deer Festival Adds more artists and new talent search

Acts already announce include headliners Jason Isbell And The 400 Unit (in a UK festival exclusive), Iron & Wine and Passenger. Other acts include Ward Thomas, Eric Bibb, rising retro rockers The Americans, John Moreland, CC Smugglers, former Howling Bells star Juanita Stein, and William The Conqueror.

Black Deer takes place at Eridge Park, Britain’s oldest deer park, located on the Kent/East Sussex border near Tunbridge Wells.

Black Deer has also launched a talent search, with the winning act getting to perform at Black Deer.

Entrants are being asked to submit their two best YouTube video performances. Once all entries are in, the judges will get to work whittling down all the entries to leave just five of the very best. These five acts will then be invited to play at the iconic Tunbridge Wells Forum. Based on their performance on the night, a winner will be chosen and awarded a stage slot at the Black Deer Festival 2018.
