Slam Dunk 2016 has added eight more names to its lineup.
Mallory Knox, The Starting Line and The Story So Far will all be playing the three-pronged festival alongside Set Your Goals, Zebrahead, Capdown, We Came As Romans and Miss May I.
They join the likes of Panic! At The Disco, Of Mice and Men and New Found Glory. The lineup as it currently stands can be found via the flashy poster below.
The festival is promising more names “soon” which is exciting.
“This announcement again really feels like it represents the anniversary of the festival” says promoter Ben Ray, “Capdown who played the very first event, Set Your Goals reforming to play, The Starting Line with a very rare UK appearance, and Zebrahead who have so much fun they want to play every year! There’s also still so many bands to be announced, it’s going to be a great year!”
Brendon Urie adds, “It’s awesome, it’s fucking cool, and I’m very excited. We haven’t actually played it before, but we have friends who have, and have heard it’s awesome! And sure, there’s a little bit of pressure, I’m not gonna lie!”
