Slam Dunk Festival Update (press release)

Slam Dunk Festival, has added 3 more bands to the 9th annual 3 day festival, covering Leeds, Hatfield and Wolverhampton.  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.

Joining exclusive headliners All American Rejects will be Feed The Rhino, the brilliant and brutal 5-piece from Kent who have brand new album ‘The Sorrow and the Sound’ set for a June 16th release through new label Century Media/Siege Of Armada Records. Already a HUGE band on the live circuit following tours with the likes of Bury Tomorrow and Bring Me The Horizon, they will be one of THE bands to catch at this year’s festival.

Also joining the line up are New Forest pop rockers Natives, who have just released their much acclaimed debut album ‘Indoor War’ and completed a blistering UK headline tour. 2014 will be a very big year for these 5 lads.

Completing the trio are Wiltshire based hardcore band Landscapes follow up their recent support slot with Architects with this festival slot. The band will be following up their 2013 ‘Life Gone Wrong’ reissue on Pure Noise soon, with recording sessions beginning this summer.

The acoustic stage acts have also now been announced, with headliner Vinnie Caruana (The Movielife and I Am The Avalanche) playing a mixture of songs from both his bands back catalogue, as well as brand new, solo tracks.

Also playing will be Washington crooner You, Me, and Everyone We Know. Having never played the UK whilst still performing as a full band, Ben Liebsch brings his brain-child over the pond for the first time, exclusively to perform at Slam Dunk Festival 2014. The much hyped Rob Lynch is returning to the Slam Dunk Festival line up but this time with his debut album release in sight and an entire Summer on the Vans Warped Tour to look forward to. Joining them will also be the legendary Mike Herrera (of MXPX fame) and UK up-and-comer The Lion & The Wolf. On top of these acts, special guests will be announced on each of the days at the festival. Expect some brilliant surprises across the 3 days.
