Black Deer Announce More Big Names and Confirm Collaboration with Kent’s SupaJam School

Black Deer Festival have announced even more artists will join their lineup in June, 2022. The previous two festival cancellations not only had a significant impact on the festival organisers, artists and of course the ticket holders, but also local hotels, restaurants and vendors. Since its launch in 2018, the festival has always aligned it’s with the local community, including their partnership with Kent’s SupaJam school, an organisation committed to helping to educate vulnerable and disadvantaged young adults on all things music. SupaJam equips their deserving students the skills, qualifications and confidence they need, to successfully enter and progress in the music industry, and the festival plays a big part in this role.

When the devastating news came through that Black Deer Festival 2021 wasn’t going to happen, the staff and students of Supajam didn’t sulk… they set to work. Alongside co-founders David Court and Nick Stillwell, the students decided to produce their own festival and put into practice the skills they’d developed working with Black Deer over the last few years. With the likes of The Wandering Hearts, Orange Circus Band and Hannah White on the line-up, White Hart Festival was a hugely successful day, demonstrating the talent and passion of all the students involved.

Through the ongoing partnership, Black Deer provide the students with an educational experience like no other and are delighted to be welcoming them back to the festival in 2022. Black Deer have just announced the latest additions to their line-up, including Imelda May, Courtney Marie Andrews, Shooter Jennings & The Cuban Brothers, and the SupaJam students will have the opportunity to curate and manage their own stage at the event.

With the students raring to go despite the setbacks of the past 2 years, the Black Deer organisers are determined to make sure that 2022 is their biggest and best festival yet, and the support of the local community will be paramount in their success.
