A music festival which was forced to cancel last summer after the Government's decision to delay the lifting of lockdown restrictions, has announced its first wave of acts for 2022.
Organisers of the Black Deer Festival, who had been determined to stage the event in June until restriction decisions changed at the last minute, have been able to move some of their biggest acts to the new dates.
The event, which will be held at Eridge Park near Tunbridge Wells from Friday, June 17 to Sunday, June 19, will see Van Morrison play on the Sunday.
Saturday's line-up will also see Wilco perform a UK exclusive as Black Deer is the only festival they will play next year. The Waterboys will also play the same date.
Drive-By Truckers, Foy Vance and The Dead South are also among the first big names to confirm their appearance, along with The Milk Carton Kids, The Felice Brothers and The Secret Sisters all confirmed.
Co-founders Deb Shilling and Gill Tee said: "We want to thank you for your unwavering support for Black Deer. We know it’s been tough out there - that’s why we’ve worked really hard to bring you these big names for our first 2022 announcement.
"There’s more to come, but we want to reassure our loyal community that everything is in place for Black Deer 2022."
There is already limited availability for Tier 3 tickets which cost £69.65 plus a booking fee for an adult day tickets. To book for the 2022 festival click here.
