Slam Dunk Festival as added the final names to this year’s lineup-this as well as the stage splits across the May bank holiday weekend, so festival goers can start planning out their days!
So here are the final bands heading out on the three day run this year; Lower Than Atlantis, Me Vs Hero, Say Anything and Homesafe will be joining the already impressive lineup for Slam Dunk 2018. They’re in good company alongside names like Good Charlotte, Jimmy Eat World, Frank Carter And The Rattlesnakes, As It Is and many, many more.
Lower Than Atlantis frontman Mike Duce had this to say on their slot at the festival; “Slam Dunk is one of my favourite festivals in the world! The crowds are always up for a laugh and I feel like almost every band’s sets feel like a headline set. It’ll also be really nice for us to see all our mates that are in other bands.”
Slam Dunk have also announced the festival’s stage splits; where the Jagermeister Stage will play host to pop-punk veterans Good Charlotte, making their Slam Dunk debut! Joining them on that stage will be Pvris, Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes, State Champs, Knuckle Puck, Four Year Strong, Sleeping With Sirens and Creeper.
The Monster Stage is not falling short in comparison to the aforementioned though; this is where you can catch emo-legends Jimmy Eat World (celebrating their 25th anniversary!), as well as Taking Back Sunday, Lower Than Atlantis, Moose Blood and Twin Atlantic. This stage will also see reunion performances from The Audition and The Dangerous Summer.
Meanwhile in terms of who’s bringing a real mix of the heavy- that would be the Impericon Stage where you can see the Every Time I Die, Comeback Kid, Northlane, Crown The Empire, The Devil Wears Prada and Astroid Boys, as well as Counterparts, Brutality Will Prevail and Loathe appearing at the festival for the first time.
You can see the full breakdown of the stages on the poster below!! Slam Dunk really isn’t one to miss this year- and with something for everyone it’s guaranteed to be a great way to kick off festival season.
Slam Dunk takes place across the May bank holiday weekend in Leeds City Centre on the 26th, Hatfield Park on the 27th and Birminghams NEC on the 28th; you can buy tickets for all of those here!
