SLAM DUNK FESTIVAL NORTH – SATURDAY 25TH MAY – TEMPLE NEWSAM PARK, LEEDS
SLAM DUNK FESTIVAL SOUTH – SUNDAY 26TH MAY – HATFIELD PARK, HATFIELD
With some huge headliners at Slam Dunk Festival 2019 already confirmed, they’ve now added the final names which includes Neck Deep, As It Is, Boston Manor, A Loss For Words, Grandson, Press to Meco, A Story Untold, Between You & Me, SHVPES, Kublai Khan, and Cruel Hand on the massive line-up!
They’re joining All Time Low, Bullet for my Valentine, New Found Glory and Less Than Jake in what promises to be the unmissable pop-punk party of the summer and, as well as these exciting new additions, Slam Dunk Festival have also announced the programming of the legendary Acoustic Stage for the May Bank Holiday.
The final names first include Neck Deep, who stand as one of the biggest British pop-punk bands of the 21st century. Their unapologetic twist on such a celebrated and classic sound has cemented their place as prominent movers and shakers of the scene. The Hopeless Records’ act kicked off their global tour of The Peace and The Panic at Slam Dunk Festival back in 2017 and they are returning full circle in 2019 to close the tour before they go away to start on their new album.
Starting from internet message boards between Brighton and Minnesota, pop-punk As It Is are set to return to Slam Dunk Festival this year. Latest album The Great Depression saw the quartet embrace darkness and melancholic exploring deep societal perceptions on mental health, masculinity and death. With this stunning reinvention, the Slam Dunk crowd can expect a theatrically delivery of anthemic tracks ‘The Reaper’, ‘No Way Out’ and ‘The Wounded World’.
Patty Walters of As It Is had this to say:
“Words can’t even describe our excitement to be returning to Slam Dunk Festival. I’ve been attending Slam Dunk as a fan for nearly ten years now, and this year won’t be any different with such an unreal lineup of bands. We can’t wait to get rowdy with you at our biggest Slam Dunk yet. The crash is coming.”
Following the release of their second full-length ‘Welcome To The Neighbourhood’, Blackpool favourites Boston Manor continue to cement their status as one of the most exciting bands in British rock music. This band are demanding attention with driving guitars and devastating melodies and their performance this summer is guaranteed to have festival-goers hanging off every note.
And then there’s A Loss For Words, who are one of the most iconic names in pop-punk. In their decade-spanning career, the Massachusetts troupe changed the course of the early 2000’s alternative scene for generations and remain as figureheads of the American pop-punk genres, inspiring many Slam Dunk Festival artists. Following their split in 2015, the band have chosen Slam Dunk as their UK reunion on the 10 year anniversary of the album, The Kids Can’t Lose; their performance at Hatfield and Leeds will be packed full of undeniable classics.
