The first names for Black Deer Festival 2020 have been announced, including Wilco, The Waterboys, Courtney Marie Andrews, and more.

Other names announced today include The Milk Carton Kids, The Felice Brothers, The Secret Sisters, Jack Broadbent, Madison Violet, The East Pointers, Midnight Skyracer, Native Harrow, The Dead South, and more.

Jeff Tweedy says of Wilco's forthcoming performance at Black Deer Festival, "Black Deer is the kind of close-knit destination festival where Wilco fits in best. We're looking forward to it."

The independent festival returns this year for another weekend full of Americana and country music. Last year's festival saw performances from Band Of Horses, Kris Kristofferson, Neko Case, Justin Townes Earle, The Mavericks, and many more.

Festival founders Gill Tee and Debs Shilling say of the new additions, "We’re both so excited to reveal the first set of artists for Black Deer 2020. We’ve listened closely to the passionate Black Deer audience and are proud to be bringing them not only the artists they already love, but artists they’re going to love. The loyalty our fans have shown us is just incredible and we’d like to thank everyone who bought a ticket without even a single name being announced! Heading into our third year, there’s an ever-growing sense that we’re building something very special and our team are working hard to deliver the best Black Deer Festival yet. There’s established names such as Wilco and The Waterboys, returning heroes like The Dead South and Irish Mythen and exciting emerging talent in Courtney Marie Andrews and Native Harrow in this first announcement. We can’t wait to add to this great line-up over the coming weeks and months and are looking forward to seeing everyone enjoying the atmosphere in our spectacular deer park next June!"

Black Deer Festival 2020 takes place from 19-21 June 2020 at Kent's Eridge Park. Find out more.
