This coming years lineup for the Slam Dunk Festival taking place in Leeds Temple Newsam and Hatfield park in the UK is chalk full of some of the current and upcoming bands in pop punk, metal, hardcore, and alternative. One thing that Slam Dunk tried their very hardest to do after having to cancel the festival in 2020 was keep the lineup the same and surprisingly they did just that, now there may be future changes to the lineup depending on the future of live entertainment but they are hoping to give people the same lineup they bought tickets for. Slam Dunk has become a staple festival over in the UK for those genre listeners and festival goers. A big draw for the festival is the Warped Tour vibe that people over in the UK have rarely been able to experience throughout the years. With two dates back to back in May all of those festival goers will be hungry to get back to it and there is no better way to get back to it than by going wild at Slam Dunk.
Some of the most exciting names on the bill are, Sum 41, Don Broco, While She Sleeps, Bury Tomorrow, The Story So Far, Code Orange, Mayday Parade, Basement, and Ice Nine Kills. All bands are bands that bring a lot of energy, good quality songs, and impressive performances every time they step foot on those stages. Some of the other artists that will put on a great show each date are, Knuckle Puck, Trash Boat, Counterparts, The Faim, With Confidence, Grayscale, Free Throw, Doll Skin, and Yours Truly.
Slam Dunk is every year, becoming a more well known and important festival to bands such as these. Past lineups have always had serious heavy hitters on the bill and per the usual this year is no different. Each year the lineup seems to get better and better, it is going to be really interesting to see where this festival is at in five to ten years.
