Already playing host to some of the hottest acts in modern alternative music, Slam Dunk Festival have revealed even more names have been added to the incredible summer billing.
Post-hardcore veteran turned folk-punk songwriter Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls, punk rock group Alkaline Trio, Welsh emo-rockers Funeral For a Friend, synth-pop sensations Hellogoodbye, ska-punk quintet Capdown, Liverpool metallers Loathe and theatrical pop-punk ringleaders As It Is will all be heading to Leeds and Hatfield in early September.
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.”
Guaranteed to be one of the biggest weekends of the long-awaited and long-overdue summer, mighty headliners Sum 41 and Don Broco will be joined by the very best from all over the world including NOFX, While She Sleeps, Mayday Parade, We Are The In Crowd, Four Year Strong, A, Static Dress and Wargasm to name a few!
