The influential rocker will be appearing with his new band, Saving Grace, at Eridge Park on June 19-21.
Other bands announced for Black Deer 2020 include Shooter Jennings, Imelda May, Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real, Wilco, The Waterboys, The Dead South, Courtney Marie Andrews and The Felice Brothers.
“This looks like a great bill,” says Robert Plant. “I’ve worked alongside most of these people in recent times, over here or over there. There’s power and beauty. Looking forward to it.”
The independent festival returns for the third time this summer with a weekend full of Americana and country music. Last year’s Black Deer saw performances from Band Of Horses, Kris Kristofferson, Neko Case, Justin Townes Earle, The Mavericks, and many more.
In 2019, more than 9,000 music fans and families headed to the second Black Deer Festival.
Music fans were treated to nearly 80 bands across six stages, as well as the delights of southern food, drink and cinematic re-imaginings.
Robert Plant, who enjoyed great success with Led Zeppelin from the late 1960s through to the end of the 1970s, is the latest in a line of high profile musicians coming to Tunbridge Wells this year.
Welsh singer Tom Jones announced last month he will be coming to the Hop Farm in Paddock Wood on July 5.
While Craig David, James Blunt and Beverley Knight have been confirmed among the performers for Pub in the Park, which takes place July 10-12.
