Slam Dunk has added a further 8 names to their already very good lineup.
Heading the announcement is Yellowcard playing their ‘Ocean Avenue‘ album in full. “I think we owe so much of the success we have been so lucky to have to Ocean Avenue,” explains Ryan Key. “We have built an incredible touring career on 6 continents over the last 15 years. We have recorded 5 more original albums following Ocean Avenue. Without that album none of these things would have been possible. I wouldn’t change a thing.”
Northlane, ROAM, Mayday Parade, Cancer Bats, Hacktivist, Norma Jean and Hit the Lights will also be appearing over the Slam Dunk weekend.
ROAM’s Alex Costello says “We are so excited to play Slam Dunk again! Playing last year was one of the highlights of 2015 for us and I think this year will be even better now we have an album out. In my opinion it’s one of the best festivals in the UK, especially for pop punk bands. It’s definitely going to be one to remember” with Northlane adding “Every time we visit the UK we’re welcomed with open arms, and always look forward to crossing the globe because the Brits make it worth it! Festivals are the most fun you can have playing in a band, and Slam Dunk is one of the best there is, We can’t wait to come over to the UK again!”
They join the likes of Every Time I Die, New Found Glory, Issues and loads more. The full lineup is below.
