Slam Dunk strips things down with their acoustic stage

Slam Dunk Festival has added another stage and another wave of acts to go alongside it.

The acoustic stage makes a return to the festival and Bryce Avary of The Rocket Summer will be headlining alongside post-Blitz Kids project Away Days, Rob Lynch, Greywind and Grumble Bee.

Elder Brother, Seafoal, Bethan Leadley and Lianne Kaye will also be performing.

They join the likes of Panic! At The Disco, Of Mice and Men, New Found Glory and Mallory Knox at the three-pronged event.

Tickets are on sale now but, according to event organisers, won’t be for long. “People on social media are continually asking us how many tickets we have left and when the events will sell out,” says Ben Ray. “As this may be the last pay week for many to buy tickets, I felt it necessary to speak out. We are certain that the South site in Hatfield, which now is the smallest, will sell out by the end of the next month and before the next payday. This probably will be the same for Leeds but with that I’m a bit less certain. I’m happy to say though that the new large site at the NEC can accommodate more, so we should have tickets left till a lot nearer the event. We don’t feel as bad when people can’t get tickets if we have given them plenty of warning!”

The dates for Slam Dunk are as follows.

28 Slam Dunk Festival North – Leeds City Centre
29 Slam Dunk Festival Midlands – Birmingham NEC
30 Slam Dunk Festival South – Hatfield, University of Hertfordshire
