As we head into the Christmas period, Slam Dunk Festival have opened a door on their proverbial advent calendar to give everyone a December helping of new bands for next years’ festivals.
Kicking off this announcement is the Slam Dunk Festival debut in 2020 of none other than Refused. The Swedish punks are heroes to many, and have continued to ignite fervent responses wherever they have gone since their reformation a few years ago.
Slam Dunk 2020 will also play host to a very special set from a favourite band of the early years of Rock Sins. Reuniting for the first time in 4 years, Young Guns will celebrate the 10th anniversary of their debut album All Our Kings Are Dead by playing the album in full!
Also onobaord to up the heavy compliment next year are the double attack of Comeback Kid and Deez Nuts, who are both very much looking forward to their returns to Leeds and Hatfield next May. The Punk In Drublic Stage has also received a major ska and punk power up courtesy of perennial favourites Reel Big Fish returning to Slam Dunk, and they’ll thrill the Punk In Drublic Stage alongside The Vandals and Face to Face.
Last but not least, also joining the fun for next year are Bedouin Soundclash, Mom Jeans, Free Throw and Movements. All of the above bands join the likes of headliners Don Broco and Sum 41, NOFX, Billy Talent, State Champs, Your Demise, The Wonder Years, Dream State and many many more.
Slam Dunk Festival 2020 takes place on Saturday 23rd of May in Leeds at the Temple Newsam site, and on Sunday 24th May at Hatfield Park in Hertfordshire.
