Slam Dunk Announces New Events, Adds Bands To Full Line-Up

Along with the announcement of three international all-dayers, Slam Dunk has added three new acts to its main line-up.

The organisers of Slam Dunk are always ones to outdo themselves, so we can only imagine that when someone thought, ‘Hey, let’s try and take this show on the road internationally’ that they jumped at the chance. Thus, a brand new event has been unveiled, set to take place in Ireland.

Alright, so maybe international is a bit of a stretch, but for the first time ever, a Slam Dunk event will take place outside of the UK, as it travels to Dublin. Alongside the new event, the usual all-dayers in Scotland and Wales will still be taking place, with a line-up consisting of the likes of Four Year Strong, Pierce The Veil, Memphis May Fire, The Early November, The Wonder Years and Man Overboard.

The three events will bookend the previously announced main festival, which takes place in Leeds, Hatfield and Birmingham, and will cost between £15 and £18 (€18 and €22 for Ireland).

The full list of Slam Dunk events set to take place is as follows.
