Black Deer 2019: Band of Horses, The Staves, John Butler Trio & more


Returning for its second year, Black Deer is on a mission to bring the real Americana & Country music, and way of life, to the UK.

Band Of Horses are confirmed as the first headliner for 2019. The South Carolina-based band have released 5 studio albums and are responsible for many of the last decade’s much-loved singles, including ‘The Funeral’ and ‘No One’s Gonna Love You’.

Other notable line up additions for Black Deer 2019 include John Butler Trio, The Staves, Kris Kristofferson & The Strangers, Billy Bragg, The Mavericks, Larkin Poe,

The Wandering Hearts and The Sheepdogs will also be returning to the arena this year as part of the festival’s ‘Deerly Beloveds’ programme – brought back by public vote following their celebrated set in 2018.

Black Deer has been acclaimed as a truly authentic experience, an independent festival born from passion, and built from experience – thanks to its two female founders whose love and respect for the genre shines through every facet of the festival.
