SLAM DUNK Announce Ten More Acts for their May Alternative Weekender

After teasing us with two new acts, Slam Dunk organisers have revealed the full list of ten new acts joining the bill for their May Bank Holiday weekender. Find out who is joining the bill here.



Slam Dunk Festival have revealed another ten names for the UK’s favourite alternative all-dayer.

Making their debut Slam Dunk Festival performance this year, Plain White T’s are set to make an appearance at Leeds and Hatfield over the bank holiday weekend returning to UK shores with latest album, the energetic Parallel Universe. Joining them will be Hellogoodbye who are set to return to Slam Dunk Festival bringing their newly-developed sultry pop rock for a highly-anticipated performance, decorated with both new hits and emo classics.

Forrest Klein of Hellogoodbye says: “We’re totally giddy to be invited over to Slam Dunk this year! The line up is insane, so many friends and lovers in one spot, it’ll be a completely gratuitous smile fest. Hellogoodbye has seen (and self-inflicted) countless changes between Slam Dunk visits in 2006, 2011, and now 2019; but I’ve got no doubt SDF will remain comfortingly the same: AN ABSOLUTE FUCKING TREAT.”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
