Festivals may have been few and far between this year, but Slam Dunk has pulled through and will be going ahead in September. Slam Dunk being able to go ahead shows we’re rapidly moving forward to live music fully returning. With a varied line up there’s sure to be something for all music fans to sink right into. Headliners Sum 41 and Don Broco will be joined by a range of punk icons, hardcore trailblazers, emo alchemists and rock transforms from across the globe.
Slam Dunk Festival Director Ben Ray says:“We’ll be celebrating Slam Dunk Festival’s 15th Anniversary in September and I’m so happy these newly announced artists will be joining us! Although the re-opening date has moved to July, we are even more confident that the festival will go ahead this year, thanks to the positive news from the test events and the rapid vaccination program taking place. With the overwhelming support shown by our fans who have kept a hold of their tickets and those who have bought tickets recently too, we know how important it is that we do our best to deliver a brilliant show this September.”
Other acts announced include NOFX, While She Sleeps, Mayday Parade, We Are The In Crowd, Four Years Strong, and Wargasm to name a few. Determined to make it an event to remember and celebrate live music in 2021, the festival will ensure all government guidelines are followed to give a Covid-19 secure event.
Slam Dunk Festival will be held at both Temple Newsam in Leeds on the 4th September and Hatfield Park on the 5th September.
