Slam Dunk have announced a VIP ticket giveaway for Valentine’s Day.

Five pairs of tickets for the Leeds date of the festival will be hidden somewhere in the city tomorrow as part of a one-day scavenger hunt, with the below teaser serving as the first clue before more hints will be dropped over on their Instagram

It was recently announced that this year’s Slam Dunk will be You Me At Six’s last-ever festival appearances, before they call it a day in 2025.

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

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

Kerrang! caught up with YMAS frontman Josh Franceschi before the news of their break-up was made public, and he said that they are “all really comfortable” with the decision they’ve made.

“It’s something we’ve been talking about for a couple of years,” Josh said. “Pretty early on in our career, we became quite obsessed with the idea of longevity. We were like, ‘How can we create our own luck and create a space for ourselves so we can have a sustainable business – and I hate that word – to be able to travel and see the world and do it for as long as possible?’ We gave ourselves a target of 20 years, and next year is 20 years of the band. We’ve got to a bit of a crossroads in our lives now where we all love what You Me At Six is, what it has given us, and what we’ve been able to give with it, but we also feel like we’ve done everything we wanted.”

“We always wanted to go out on our own terms,” he added. “No-one’s in the dark about what’s happening, and that means we can enjoy it more. If we were to rock up to Slam Dunk, and be like, ‘This was our last gig, see you later,’ drop the mic and walk off… I think we’re better than that. And I want people to remember our band as being their band.”
