The Deer Shed Festival has announced it will offer full weekend adult tickets to its ninth edition at a heavily discounted price of £50 (plus booking fee) for holders of adult full weekend tickets to the cancelled Beverley Folk Festival.
The 2018 Deer Shed line-up may not be designed solely for folk purists, but fantastic folk-influenced acts include: This Is The Kit, Scott Matthews, Rozi Plain, Pictish Trail, Siv Jakobsen, Bryde, The Lost Brothers, Seamus Fogarty, Night Flight, Holy Moly & The Crackers, Morrissey & Marshall, Riley Pearce, Bella Gaffney & Polly Bolton and more.
Artists at the top of the music bill include Goldfrapp, Drenge, Field Music (with the Open Here Orchestra), Public Service Broadcasting, Gaz Coombes, Joan As Police Woman, Nadine Shah and Jane Weaver.
Deer Shed tickets are currently priced at £145 (tier 3 out of 4) so the offer represents a discount of over 60%.
A spokesperson for Deer Shed said:
“We were saddened to hear of the cancellation of such a longstanding Yorkshire festival. Last year was a rough year for festivals countrywide, as many of us put on events that our audiences and artists loved, but the stories that stick in peoples’ minds are from the minority that don’t quite go to plan for one reason or another.”
“With this offer, we’re trying to do our bit to let everyone know British festivals are not in crisis, as headlines might suggest. If you had plans to spend the weekend at Beverley Folk Festival, come to Deer Shed instead and experience just how magical a British summer festival can be.”
To claim the discount, simply forward your proof of purchase from Beverley Folk Festival to firstname.lastname@example.org, and the Deer Shed team will reply with a discount code for full weekend adult tickets to Deer Shed Festival 9.
Deer Shed Festival 9 takes place on 20 – 22 JULY 2018 at Baldersby Park, Topcliffe North Yorkshire.
