10 More Bands Announced For Slam Dunk Festival

Slam Dunk festival gets even bigger with ten more bands announced for the weekender

This year’s Slam Dunk festival has expanded to the tune of ten more bands.

Spread across various stages, leading the charge in today’s announcement are LA post-hardcore mainstays Touché Amoré and Kerrang! favourites Employed To Serve.

Illinois pop-punks Plain White T’s will be making their Slam Dunk debut, and Hellogoodbye will be bringing their synthy-indie-emo-pop to Hatfield and Leeds this May.

We’re totally giddy to be invited over to Slam Dunk this year,” says Hellogoodbye’s Forrest Klein. “The line-up is insane, so many friends and lovers in one spot, it’ll be a completely gratuitous smile fest.”

Today’s announcement also includes the addition of Microwave, Tigers Jaw, Wage War, Our Hollow Our Home and Lights.

I’m so pumped to be on the Slam Dunk bill for the first time,” says Lights. “Not only am I excited to play with a bunch of great bands, but it’s been over two years since I’ve been back in the UK, so needless to say Slam Dunk can’t come soon enough!”

This year’s Slam Dunk festival takes place May 25 and May 26 in Leeds and Hatfield respectively. Get your tickets now. Bands previously announced include All Time Low, Bullet For My Valentine, NOFX, Gallows, Glassjaw, Cancer Bats, The Mezingers and more.
