Frankie And The Heartstrings
Added to the line-up on the Obelisk Main Stage are Frankie And The Heartstrings, Marcus Foster, and Tom Williams & The Boat.

The In The Dock Stage line-up is completed by opening act and 8-piece orchestral pop band Arthur Rigby and the Baskervylles. The third music stage on Saturday at Deer Shed is the Key Production Stage which will be supporting the best new and unsigned bands from the North of England.

Saturday is Deer Shed's main music day with three stages running full programmes but in addition to the cabaret focus on Friday night and the chilled out 'long goodbye' on Sunday, music lovers can get their fix of more top new acts on both the first and last day of the festival as well. On Friday the Key Production Stage will play host to Hope & Social, Two Spot Gobi, and My Forever while the Greentop Circus run the cabaret evening in the Big Top, and on Sunday the In The Dock Stage is home to acoustic performances from Sam Airey, Holly Taymar, and The Glendale Family while festival goers chill out with coffee, newspapers and a morning market.

Previously confirmed are I Am Kloot who headline with The Go! Team. Joining them on the Obelisk Stage bill will be The Leisure Society, Erland and the Carnival, Caitlin Rose, Admiral Fallow, Matthew and the Atlas, Lanterns on the Lake, Laki Mera, Echaskech, Digitonal, Mach V, and Echaskech.
