Background

We can’t quite put into words how we’re feeling right now.
And so we’ll keep things short.

The delay by the Government on the easing of restrictions means we’re unable to bring you Black Deer Festival 2021.

It’s devastating news for all connected with Black Deer.
But we’ll be back, in 2022.

We’ll soon be sharing the next steps for Black Deer Festival 2022 with all you wonderful ticket-holders who stuck with us.
We’ll be in touch very soon.

Thank you,
The Black Deer Team.

 

The organisers behind the UK’s ‘Best New Festival’ have released a statement to their ticket holders after the government extended lockdown restrictions for 4 weeks yesterday. Explaining that they “can’t quite put in to words how we are feeling right now”. The team, who had reached nearly 15,000 tickets for their 25-27 June event despite the cancellation of their 2020 festival and all that followed were unable to meet the government’s capacity requirements which remained capped at 4000.

“It’s a devastating blow for us. We have been working around the clock to make sure every possible health and safety procedure is in place to keep everyone safe. We are an outdoor event, and the area is so large we could have easily catered for social distancing and added many other Covid-19 mitigations into our planning scenarios. This cancelation not only impacts on us, but our artists, musicians, crews, vendors and of course our wonderfully supportive ticket holders.” – Gill Tee, co-founder.

Black Deer organisers have questioned why there has been no government support available for them at any point in the last 15 months, and that considering their circumstances they have not been offered the opportunity to continue as one of the ‘pilot’ events mentioned by Boris Johnson in his speech yesterday.

In their closing statement, the team have appealed directly to their ticket holders writing: “All we ask from you now, is your continued support and patience. As we work tirelessly behind the scenes to come back stronger than ever, in 2022.”
