Cancer Bats, Milk Teeth, Atreyu And More Announced For Slam Dunk 2019

Slam Dunk announces Cancer Bats, Atreyu, Milk Teeth, The Bronx and more for this year’s festival

Ten more bands have been announced for this year’s Slam Dunk festival.

Joining the May Bank Holiday weekender are Cancer Bats, Milk Teeth, Atreyu, WSTR, Pagan, The Bronx, Seaway, The Word Alive, Angel Du$t and Real Friends.

“Let me tell you this planet Earth! I’m not gonna even pretend to hide how freakin’ pumped we are to be playing a stage packed with all of our best homies all day,” say Cancer Bats. “This line-up is the sickest space jam of a Slam Dunk line-up since Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny teamed up to save the universe!”

Cancer Bats, The Bronx and Angel Du$t complete the line-up for the Impericon Stage, with the other seven bands being split across the day.

Slam Dunk is a special one for us,” says Sammy Clifford of WSTR. “They’ve backed us from the start and we’ve been going to it a long time before we started playing it. It’s been cool watching it grow from a small venue in Leeds to huge locations around the country. Looking forward to playing it again this year!”

“We are stoked to come back to one of our favourite places in the world, to play our first ever European festival!” says Pagan’s Nikki Brumen. “Getting to play with bands such as Glassjaw, Saves The Day and The Get Up Kids is like a childhood dream. Cannot wait to party again in the UK!”

Slam Dunk festival takes place on May 25 and 26 in Leeds and Hatfield, UK. Already announced bands include All Time Low, Bullet For My Valentine, Glassjaw, New Found Glory Gallows, Turnstile and NOFX.
