Not delivering Slam Dunk festival in 2020 was hard, but with 2021 being the 15th anniversary we will be sure to make it a special one for us all,” say festival director Ben Ray. With overwhelming support shown by our fans by keeping hold of their tickets, I felt it was important to try to give them as many of the artists they bought their tickets for as possible. Therefore I’m so happy to be able to confirm the majority will be returning.”

The likes of Reel Big Fish, Basement, Comeback Kid, Your Demise, Ice Nine Kills, Four Year Strong and Dance Gavin Dance also join the line-up. Check out the full bill below. 

Slam Dunk takes place in Leeds and Hatfield on May 29 and 30, 2021, respectively. Tickets are available now.
