Renowned for their large line-up and packed days, Slam Dunk Festival has announced the first 6 bands playing next years dates!

Jimmy Eat World will appear at their debut Slam Dunk Festival appearance as headline act.

They will be joined by emo leaders Taking Back Sunday party-starters Four Year Strong, post-hardcore heroes Sleeping With Sirens, pop-punk’s hottest property State Champs and fast-rising mob Trash Boat, all of which are poised to deliver the performance of the summer at next year’s unmissable pop-punk party. All six acts will be gracing the Slam Dunk Festival stages as UK festival exclusives.

As well as announcing four prized pop-punk acts, Slam Dunk Festival have announced that Slam Dunk South will now take place at Hatfield Park, having outgrown its former home, the University of Hatfield.

Over double the size of the previous location, Hatfield Park is located in the grounds of Hatfield House and situated directly opposite Hatfield train station, making it even more accessible and accommodating for festival goers wishing to revel in Slam Dunk Festival’s alternative extravaganza.

Festival Director, Ben Ray comments:
‘Slam Dunk Festival South has been taking place in Hatfield since 2010 so the town has truly become our home. Therefore, I am extremely happy we managed to find a new site still within the town. We are sad to leave the University however the event was selling out months in advance so we knew we had to move it and make it bigger due to demand from the fans.’

Slam Dunk Festival will begin in it’s spiritual home of Leeds, Millennium Square, before travelling to the new location of Hatfield Park, and finishing at the beloved Birmingham NEC. Tickets will go on sale Friday 17th November 2017 from here
