13 more Bands Confirmed for Slam Dunk Festival


Slam Dunk Festival, has added 13 bands to the ninth annual 3 day festival, covering Leeds, Hatfield and Wolverhampton.

The 7 stage event uses a combination of indoor and outdoor stages across urban sites aiming to create a unique festival experience.

Saturday 24 May: Slam Dunk Festival North. Leeds University.
Sunday 25 May: Slam Dunk Festival South. The Forum, Hertfordshire.
Monday 26 May: Slam Dunk Festival Midlands. Wolverhampton Civic.

Joining exclusive headliners All American Rejects will be Kids In Glass Houses. Having announced their impending split earlier in the year, this was the one festival they truly wanted to do a final time. In celebration of which, they will be exclusively playing their debut album ‘Smart Casual’ in it’s entirety.

“Our first Slam Dunk show was the day before Smart Casual was released and the festival feels intrinsically linked to our beginnings as a band. It seems only fitting, then, that we should say goodbye to the festival the same we said hello, by playing Smart Casual in full. It’s been 6 whole years and a lot of has happened since but it’s still as fresh in our minds as the colossal hangover we suffered on release day. We can’t wait.” says frontman Aled Phillips.
