JIMMY EAT WORLD HEADLINE SLAM DUNK FESTIVAL 2018

JOINED BY TAKING BACK SUNDAY, SLEEPING WITH SIRENS, FOUR YEAR STRONG, STATE CHAMPS AND TRASH BOAT  

ALL ACTS UK FESTIVAL EXCLUSIVES

Slam Dunk Festival is proud to announce the first six bands that will take to the stage for 2018. The festival is set to return for it’s biggest year to date as the legendary and anthemic Jimmy Eat World will take to the stage in their debut Slam Dunk Festival appearance. They will be joined by emo leaders Taking Back Sunday, party-starters Four Year Strong, post-hardcore heroesSleeping With Sirens, pop-punk’s hottest property State Champs and fast-rising mob Trash Boat, all of which are poised to deliver the performance of the summer at next year’s unmissable pop-punk party. All six acts will be gracing the Slam Dunk Festival stages as UK festival exclusives.

 

Responsible for powering an entire cult movement with pioneering songwriting and unfaltering live performances, Jimmy Eat World’s beloved works ‘Bleed American’, ‘Futures’,  all the way to the most recent, ‘Integrity Blues’ are nothing short of expert masterpieces. The stalwarts continue to captivate audiences and inspire pop-punk rock acts of the modern era - influencing sounds across multiple genres and playing to thousands of fans through countless time-zones. Their riotous debut appearance will no doubt be full of euphoria and nostalgia at Slam Dunk Festival.

 

Joining the Arizona heavyweights, are the New Jersey kings of heartbreak, Taking Back Sunday, who will be bringing their highly-anticipated act to Slam Dunk Festival 2018. Their strike rate on hit records speak for themselves; alongside 2002’s ‘Cute Without The E (Cut From The Team)’, the likes of ‘Make Damn Sure’, ‘A Decade Under The Influence’ and ‘Make Damn Sure’ have not only helped them attain chart success here but also a vehemently loyal fanbase worldwide.w

 

Floridian icons Sleeping With Sirens are set to return to UK shores with a remarkably coveted performance which is set to win the hearts of many next summer. Armed with a catalogue of undeniable rock tracks, packed full of soaring guitars and sublime vocal melodies, the troupe lead by charismatic vocalist Kellin Quinn are at the top of the game. Expect the classics and fan favourites from the first 4 albums, alongside mind blowing singles from recently released ‘Gossip’ album when they stun audiences at Slam Dunk Festival 2018.
 

Shaun Cooper of Taking Back Sunday says:
"We are very excited to announce our return to the United Kingdom in May for Slam Dunk. We have had such a great time in years past we felt very fortunate to receive an offer we couldn't refuse.  We will be sharing a stage with the legendary Jimmy Eat World!  We can't wait to see you at the shows”

SLAM DUNK FESTIVAL SOUTH TO CHANGE SITES! 

THE UK’S BIGGEST INDEPENDENT ROCK FESTIVAL TO TAKE PLACE AT HATFIELD PARK 

OVER 60 ACTS TO BE ANNOUNCED ACROSS 8 STAGES

 

SLAM DUNK FESTIVAL NORTH - SATURDAY 26TH MAY -  LEEDS CITY CENTRE

 

SLAM DUNK FESTIVAL SOUTH - SUNDAY 27TH MAY -  HATFIELD PARK

 

SLAM DUNK FESTIVAL MIDLANDS - BANK HOLIDAY MONDAY 28TH MAY - BIRMINGHAM NEC

 

Slam Dunk Festival is set to return for it’s biggest year to date and is delighted to announce that Slam Dunk South will now take place at Hatfield Park, having outgrown its former home in Hatfield, the University of Hertfordshire.

 

Over double the size of the previous location, Hatfield Park is located in the grounds of Hatfield House and situated directly opposite Hatfield train station, making it even more accessible and accommodating for festival goers wishing to revel in Slam Dunk Festival’s alternative extravaganza.

 

Festival Director, Ben Ray comments:
‘Slam Dunk Festival South has been taking place in Hatfield since 2010 so the town has truly become our home. Therefore, I am extremely happy we managed to find a new site still within the town. We are sad to leave the University however the event was selling out months in advance so we knew we had to move it and make it bigger due to demand from the fans.’

 

In 2018, Slam Dunk Festival will begin in it’s spiritual home of Leeds, Millennium Square, before travelling to the new location of Hatfield Park, and finishing at the beloved Birmingham NEC.
