Following on from the colossal success that was Slam Dunk Festival’s transition to outdoor sites last year, Slam Dunk have announced the first wave of bands set to grace Hatfield and Leeds in May 2020.
Headlining the event next year will be none other than Don Broco, with their two respective sets poised to be group’s only UK festival dates of next year. No strangers to the hedonistic ways of Slam Dunk, the group’s headline performances are set to be massive return to the festival that has nourished them from the very start.
Joining them for next year will be the pop punk turned alt rock prodigies The Wonder Years, pop punk jumpstarts State Champs, teenage heart breakers Mayday Parade and easycore pioneers Four Year Strong. Also set to appear are the trendsetters in Knuckle Puck, the punk heroes in Bayside and the dearly beloved Motion City Soundtrack, whose appearance next year will be the group’s exclusive reunion on our shores.
Teasing the heavier side of things to come are Fearless records favourites Ice Nine Kills, the metalcore genre benders Issues and the cherished alt-rockers Hands Like Houses.
A key date in a crowded festival calendar, Slam Dunk is set to be one of the biggest events of next Spring. The festival returns to Leeds Temple Newsam on Saturday 23rd May and Hatfield Park on Sunday 24th May. Tickets are available from 10am Friday 27th September.
