Kate Webster, co-founder of Deer Shed Festival: “We’re so excited to share our full music line-up alongside more of our wider festival programme today.

"It’s been a long two years since we last had our whole Deer Shed family together and this is year is shaping up to be a huge celebration of music, comedy, theatre, shows, sports, science and so much more for all of us to enjoy.

"There’s so much I'm looking forward to this year but Self Esteem is definitely a highlight.

"After Rebecca Lucy Taylor and her band joined us in 2019 for an iconic performance, it's been amazing to watch Self Esteem go from strength-to-strength, picking up critical and commercial acclaim while making forward thinking pop music that can change your life. RLT returns to Deer Shed a bonafide Pop Star and we can’t wait!”
