I am Kloot are amongst the headliners for this years Deer Shed Festival set in a beautiful North Yorkshire ParklandThe kid and family friendly music and arts festival set in beautiful North Yorkshire parkland, Deer Shed Festival returns for its sophomore year this July. Having already announced headliners I Am Kloot, festival organisers Oliver and Kate Jones today announce several more fantastic additions to the bill.
The Go! Team, The Leisure Society, Caitlin Rose, Admiral Fallow, Matthew and the Atlas plus more confirmations here.
With music across three stages on the middle day of the festival, I Am Kloot will be preceded on Saturday by kick-ass audio adventurists The Go! Team. Having recently released their third album and currently on tour across the UK, the sextet with a sharp line in catchy and commanding three minute sonic masterpieces will have the Deer Shed crowd jumping.
Joining them on the Obelisk Stage bill will be the critically acclaimed and Ivor Novello nominated The Leisure Society. Soon to release their eagerly anticipated second album, their beautiful soundscapes have garnered a loyal fanbase including Guy Garvey who named their single 'The Last of the Melting Snow' his favourite song of 2009.
Woozy Americana with a distinctly English folk sensibility comes to Deer Shed courtesy of Matthew and The Atlas alongside cinematic indie from the North East-based band, Lanterns on The Lake. Glaswegian band Laki Mera and their gloriously atmospheric clash of sinister electronica and fragile folk beauty will play the In The Dock stage on Saturday before joining their Just Music label mates in the Big Top on Sunday.
Deer Shed offers three diverse days to keep festival-goers of all ages happy. On Friday an evening of cabaret in the Big Top eases the audience into the weekend before Saturday's programme of the best in contemporary music. Sunday is the Deer Shed Festival 'long goodbye' – chilled music, coffee, newspapers, organised kids sports, nature trails and a morning market.
