Alkaline Trio And The Used Join Slam Dunk 2020 Line-Up

Slam Dunk have added The Used and Alkaline Trio to their September festival.

Having recently confirmed the line-up for their rescheduled festival in September, Slam Dunk have now added two more killer bands to the bill: Alkaline Trio and The Used.

The new bands join headliners Don Broco and Sum 41, plus the likes of Billy Talent, While She Sleeps, The Story So Far, The Wonder Years, Code Orange, Young Guns and more – plus “secret special guests” according to the festival.

“Even while we continue to stay home to do our part, we look forward to coming back to the UK for our first time in years!” enthuses Alkaline Trio’s Dan Andriano. “Slam Dunk will be amazing!”

The Used, meanwhile, add that they are “very excited” to be back on the line-up, having originally pulled out of the planned May dates due to an opportunity that the band “couldn’t turn down”.

“We know everyone is going through a tough time at the moment, so we really appreciate your patience and continued support,” Slam Dunk said in a statement recently. “SDF has always been about music, community and love – and we’re determined to bring you the best possible Slam Dunk for 2020, regardless of these unforeseen challenges.

“Keep an eye out over the coming weeks as we add new bands to the line-up, and we hope to see you in September for a slightly adjusted but still awesome event.”
