THE Black Deer Festival has revealed its first wave of artists for the fifth edition of the award-winning festival, taking place at Eridge Park on June 14-16, 2024.

Following on from big names that have featured in previous years including Bonnie Rait, Van Morrison and Jake Bugg, the Americana festival has now announced that Grammy-nominated Australian singer Courtney Barnett will be joining the already-announced international country superstar Sheryl Crow in the Black Deer Festival line-up for 2024.

Barnett received widespread acclaim in 2015 following the release of her debut album, Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit, winning four awards from eight nominations at the 2015 ARIA Music awards as well as receiving nominations for Best New Artist at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards and International Female Solo Artist at the 2016 Brit Awards.

Also added to the bill are the likes of Seasick Steve, Hermanos Gutiérrez, The Shires, The Staves and Villagers, alongside some of the best in fast-rising talent, such as Dylan Gossett, Nottingham’s Divorce, Michele Stodart, songwriting duo Prima Queen, and Lana Del Ray collaborator Holly Macve.

Founded by Gill Tee and Deborah Shilling in 2018, Black Deer Festival of Americana brings the real Americana and Country music, and way of life, to the UK.

The duo are no strangers to the festival and events scene, having produced and directed some of the UK’s most loved, legendary Americana artists such as Neil Young, The Eagles and Bob Dylan.

Gill Tee, Co-Founder of Black Deer Festival adds: “We are so excited about Black Deer 2024. This year we welcome the renowned Sheryl Crow to our stage, and as well as other incredible acts that have just been announced for this year’s line-up. We can’t wait to return to Eridge Park and reunite the Black Deer family with another absolutely fantastic selection of artists.”
