Slam Dunk Leeds Latest Line-up now 7 Stages (press release)

Slam Dunk Festival, the UK’s favourite and biggest independent touring festival is back for a 9th year. Not only does it return to run over a few days – Leeds, Hatfield and Wolverhampton- it will be the biggest yet! The 7 stage event uses a combination of indoor and outdoor stages across urban sites to create a totally unique festival experience.

Saturday 24th May: Slam Dunk Festival North. Leeds University.

Sunday 25th May: Slam Dunk Festival South. The Forum, Hertfordshire.

Monday 26th May: Slam Dunk Festival Midlands. Wolverhampton Civic.

This year’s headliner are the platinum selling, The All American Rejects. This will be their only UK performances of 2014, playing a plethora of hits from their four albums which have sold over 10 million copies worldwide including ‘Dirty Little Secret’, ‘Gives You Hell’, ‘Swing Swing’ and more.

Joining exclusive headliners All American Rejects will be the wonderful Kids In Glass Houses.  Having announced their impending split earlier in the year, this was the one festival they truly wanted to do a final time.  In celebration of which, they will be exclusively playing their massive debut album ‘Smart Casual’ in it’s entirety. 

Rock Sound cover stars, We Are The In Crowd will be returning to Slam Dunk Festival and are set to be one of the favourites of the weekend.  Singer, Tay Jardine says  "The biggest reward of playing Slam Dunk's going to be seeing our old fans and making some new ones! It's going to be a lot of fun.” 

Yorkshire darlings and one of the hottest tips in UK rock, Marmozets will be playing to support their forthcoming debut album. Vocalist Becca says ‘I’m excited about playing Slam Dunk as it’s a little like Christmas – all the family get together, have a good drink sesh and lots of surprises are bound to happen!’

Slam Dunk Festival organiser Ben Ray says:

“I am happier than ever to reveal the latest lineup for this year’s Slam Dunk Festival. With such big hit singles, The All American Rejects are a massive headliner for us. I wanted a band who haven’t just toured the UK earlier in the year, or doing other dates around the festival so they are perfect to make the festival unique!

It’s taken me a bit longer to book this year, but really appreciate everyone’s patience and the belief that we will deliver the best event of the summer! There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes that the fans don’t see… bands are only allowed to play one, maybe two festivals in one country over the summer period, and with so many festivals fighting for bands, it’s gets difficult for all of us!  It was so important to build on the massive success of last year’s events, I had a lot of sleepless nights! Midlands was especially a great last year as it was the first time we had done the 3rd day of the festival. Not only did it sell out but people were amazed to see the full festival site, including the roads closed off with stages in the middle of them in the city centre of Wolverhampton!”
