Black Deer Festival Celebrates Inaugural Year


The UK’s Black Deer Festival held its inaugural three-day event recently, selling more than 5,000 tickets for the first year of the festival. Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, Passenger, Ashley CampbellIron and Wine and Striking Matches were among the 88 artists performing.

“We just had the most magnificent weekend at Black Deer Festival 2018,” said Black Deer Festival promoter Gill Tee. “We spent a huge amount of time thinking about what we wanted to do for our inaugural year, it was the most amazing experience seeing it all come to life and all the hard work from everyone on the team come to fruition. The feedback we have had has just been incredibly positive and supportive, quite overwhelming, so in planning for 2019, we’ll be looking to go for a similar balance with the scope of artists, the food and the cultural highlights, only looking to see how we can enhance the whole experience even further. Our Super Early Bird tickets are already on sale and flying out, so watch this space…”

Black Deer Festival’s 2019 event will be held June 21-23.

Charlie Daniels and his non-profit veterans organization, The Journey Home Project, were featured on Friday, July 6 at the NASCAR Xfinity Series, Coca-Cola Firecracker 250 at the Daytona International Speedway. Professional stock car driver Mike Harmon revealed his latest racer that includes a fresh hood logo featuring Daniels and The Journey Home Project.

“It was a complete honor having The Journey Home Project and Charlie Daniels aboard this past weekend honoring our nations heroes,” said Harmon. “Eight members of the HSM-60 Jaguars along with Sgt. Brandon Stevenson, USMC, Purple Heart Receipt, escorted the car onto the track. We honored their service and sacrifices and also saluted the Helmineron Fifteen (HM-15) Blackhawks with a windshield banner. These fine gentlemen also represented The Journey Home Project and what their mission stands for. All of us at Mike Harmon Racing can’t wait to do it all over again this season.”
