You Me At Six will be playing their final-ever UK festival set at Slam Dunk this May.

Having announced that they will be splitting up in 2025, YMAS will be bowing out of British festivals at the first one they ever played way back in 2008.

“We couldn’t think of a better place to perform our last festival appearance than the festival that first ever booked us,” say You Me At Six. “It’s going to be a full circle moment with raw and charged-up emotion in abundance. We can’t wait.”

Making their Slam Dunk debut some 16 years ago, the Weybridge Britrockers have become a favourite of the festival, and in 2022 played their celebratory 10 Years Of Sin shows using the festival sites. Headlining for the final time this year is a real full-circle moment.

Alongside the YMAS announcement, Slam Dunk have added six more bands across the festival: The Dangerous Summer, As Everything Unfolds, Guilt Trip, Arm’s Length and Beauty School. They will join a stacked line-up that also features The Interrupters, Bob Vylan, Waterparks, I Prevail, Palaye Royale, The Wonder Years and Against The Current.

Slam Dunk Festival takes place at Hatfield Park and Leeds Temple Newsman on May 25 and 26 respectively. Get your tickets now.
