Alkaline Trio and The Used Added to Rescheduled Slam Dunk 2020 Festival

With dates now rescheduled for September, Slam Dunk Festival organisers have added Alkaline Trio and The Used to the line-up.



Having confirmed Slam Dunk Festival 2020’s new dates after a major rescheduling effort, Slam Dunk looks to close the summer with a much-needed alternative celebration soundtracked by an indisputably impressive line-up.

Slam Dunk Festival adds punk rock trailblazers-turned-icons Alkaline Trio and genre-defining emo pioneers The Used to the festival’s new September instalment.

Dan Andriano from Alkaline Trio said: “Even while we continue to stay home to do our part, we look forward to coming back to the UK for our first time in years! Slam Dunk will be amazing!”

Originally confirmed to play Slam Dunk Festival 2020 before an unmissable opportunity materialised for them Stateside, Utah’s noisiest sons The Used are back on track to make their Slam Dunk Festival debut in September.

The Used says: “We are very excited to announce that we’re back on the lineup for the rescheduled @slamdunkmusic dates in September!”

Due to COVID19, Slam Dunk Festival 2020 will now take place on Saturday 5th September at Leeds Temple Newsam and Saturday 6th September at Hatfield Park. Slam Dunk Festival 2020 was originally due to take place on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th May at the respective venues.

General Admission tickets to Slam Dunk Festival are £75.90 (including booking fee). VIP tickets to both Slam Dunk North and South are now sold out.

Slam Dunk Festival’s Opening Party will now take place at Leeds Beckett SU on Friday 4th September.

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.
