Hear what some of this year’s act had to say about Slam Dunk Festival:
Patty Walters of As It Is says; “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.”
Henry Cox of Boston Manor says; “We’re very excited to be playing Slam Dunk again this year; it’s one of our favourite UK festivals. We’re gonna make it one to remember.”
On making his Slam Dunk and UK festival debut, grandson says; “This summer I and a small caravan of the baddest most diabolical rock and roll immigrants I could possibly assemble will be descending on your grounds to play my first ever festival outside of North America. I am not exaggerating when I say it is something I have been looking forward to my entire life, and my preparation, enthusiasm onstage, and general attitude will reflect that excitement I have. I can not promise you will agree with everything I have to say up there, I can not promise I will fit in with the rest of the music you will hear that day, but I promise it’ll get real fucking loud and real fucking dark. See you there.✖️✖️”
Press To Meco say; “We’re super excited to announce we’ll be playing Slam Dunk this year. It’s one of the coolest UK festivals and they knock the line up out of the park every year.”
SHVPES say; “
