Slam Dunk Festival Announce Further Line-Up Additions

0 9

A key date in the emo calendar, Slam Dunk Festival, returns to Temple Newsam Park on Saturday 23rd May before moving onto Slam Dunk South at Hatfield Park on Sunday 24th May.

The UK’s best alternative festival is back with further line-up additions to what was already shaping up to be a fantastic day for all things emo, pop-punk and hardcore, Slam Dunk Festival is where you need to be this year.

With the success of the 2019 north edition of the festival moving from Leeds City Centre to Temple Newsam Park, bringing bigger, better and greener festival vibes, it’s exciting to see what the curators of Slam Dunk will bring to the sophomore edition of the new open-air feel.

This year’s line-up boasts some of the biggest names in alternative music including Don Broco as the first announced headliner which became public knowledge late last year, also joining them in the previous announcement was The Wonder Years, who have announced they will be playing ‘The Upsides‘ in full for the 10th anniversary of the album. Lucky us!

The latest declaration includes many monumental names such as While She Sleeps, who just finished their headline tour including a sold-out performance at Brixton Academy, now returning to Slam Dunk to headline the Jägermeister stage. Further down the line-up are grammy-nominated hardcore-heavyweights, Code Orange, who will be making their debut appearance at the festival, who seem just as excited to play as we are to see them.

“We’re looking forward to playing Slam Dunk Fest because it’s different for us, and it’s a new audience that we haven’t been super exposed to. I think that we will definitely stand out on the line up, so it should be fun!”

Also joining them are pop-punk titans The Story So Far, alt-rock powerhouse Basement and the kings of melancholic singalongs Mayday Parade. The line-up is shaping up to look like everyone’s Spotify playlists from 2011-2014 and we can’t wait. We are also looking forward to fresher talent added to the line-up such as Movements and Doll Skin.

General Admission tickets come in at the cost of £75.90 (including booking fee) and more information can be found here. If you’re looking for somewhere to spend your Friday night before the festival and wanting to make a weekend of it, Slam Dunk are also hosting an opening party at the O2 Academy Leeds with alt-electro old-timers 3OH!3 taking the headline spot, as well as putting on A Day To Remember‘s headline gig on Sunday 24th May at the Temple Newsam site. What a weekend for alt music!

Tickets can be purchased here for all events, but be quick, as they are sure to sell-out! Join the official event here to let all your pals know you’re going!
