Every 2020 event, whether music, gaming or social, has to face the uncertainty of a summer which might involve more lockdowns, and certainly will involve social distancing. Black Deer Festival have looked at the medical situation and, along with Glastonbury and many others, decided the only responsible thing to do is to postpone this year’s event to 2021.
But they’ve worked hard behind the scenes to secure the 2021 lineup, so you know who to look forward to: Wilco will be back, as will the Waterboys, Robert Plant, The Dead South (who we will certainly be watching), and many more. The event will take place 18th to 20th June 2021. In recognition of the work the health service is doing, 1500 tickets will be donated to NHS and other key workers. 
Here’s festival bosses Gill Tee and Deborah Shilling:
“This announcement has taken longer than we hoped but what was so important, other than the obvious safety of our community, was to do everything we could to make sure we were able to recreate the same excitement for our line-up in 2021 that we were all looking forward to at Black Deer Festival this year. We’re incredibly grateful for the support of the artists and their teams in working with us to secure a line-up for 2021 equally as amazing as 2020. In addition to Wilco, The Waterboys, Saving Grace featuring Robert Plant, The Dead South, Imelda May and many more, we’re beyond excited to announce more roots heroes such as Police Dog Hogan, The Lost Brothers and welcome back the uplifting Powerhouse Gospel Choir to deliver what we know will be the best weekend celebration of Americana & Country the UK will have ever seen.”
Here’s what you need to know if you have tickets: “The festival has offered current ticket holders the opportunity to roll over their ticket to 2021 and receive an exclusive limited-edition Black Deer T-shirt, transfer their ticket to a keyworker, or apply for a ticket refund. All ticket holders will be contacted directly by Black Deer’s ticket agency partners via email within the next three days to confirm how to activate their preferred option.”
