Slam Dunk Festival, the unmissable pop-punk party of the summer, is delighted to reveal the final mind-blowing names for 2019’s instalment. Pop punks Neck Deep, As It Is, Boston Manor, A Loss For Words, Grandson, Press to Meco, A Story Untold, Between You & Me, SHVPES, Kublai Khan, Cruel Hand. 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.
Fresh from storming across the UK’s monumental arenas with Don Broco, Neck Deep 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, melancholically 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’.
In addition to these incredible names, Slam Dunk Festival have revealed Justin Pierre of Motion City Soundtrack, Rob Lynch, Liam Cromby, formerly of We Are The Ocean, Chas Palmer-Williams of Lightyear and Lizzy Farrell for their revered acoustic stage.
After the huge success of Slam Dunk’s move to Hatfield House last year, Slam Dunk North will move to Leeds’ Temple Newsam Estate so even more pop-punk fanatics can make their way to the definitive date of the alternative diary. Reaching across two stunning greenfield sites in Leeds and Hatfield on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th May 2019 - Slam Dunk 2019 is the next evolution for that go-to destination of rock.
