For what will surely be the Bank Holiday party to end all Bank Holiday parties, Slam Dunk have announced another raft of acts for their 2022 festival.

Headlined by Neck Deep, Sum 41, Alexisonfire and Dropkick Murphys, the event which takes place at sites in Leeds and Hatfield over two days, already features a stacked card including The Used, The Story So Far, Pennywise, The Interrupters, Meet Me At The Altar, Silverstein, Deaf Havana, Cancer Bats, Pinkshift, Motion City Soundtrack and more!

Now joining the line-up organisers have confirmed Australian pop-punkers Stand Atlantic will be returning to Slam Dunk and will be joined by Smrtdeath, Cassyette, LA singer-songwriter DeathbyRomy (check out our interview with the dark-pop star here, New Jersey ska-punk legends Streetlight Manifesto, South Wales’ Punk Rock Factory, alt-scene legend MC Lars, South London dirtbags Bears In Trees, and Los Angeles band In Her Own Words.

Speaking about her appearance at Slam Dunk, Cassyette says: “Fuck yeah Slam Dunk ..buzzing to playing this year hope you see you there!” while Bears In Trees had this to say: “Slam Dunk has always been our dream to play. Pretty much every band that’s meant anything to me has been on their stage at one point or another. To be able to share that stage this year is crazy. I’m also hoping our times don’t clash with Motion City Soundtrack, because I’ve been waiting to see them live for about ten years now.”

Slam Dunk Festival 2022 will take place on Friday 3rd June (North) and Saturday 4th June (South), moving from the usual May Bank Holiday weekend to align with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Bank Holiday Weekend which begins on Thursday 2nd June.

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.
