This year will be the 12th edition of the infamous Slam Dunk Festival, which now takes place across three sites in the South, North, and Midlands of England. The 2018 line-up boasts an incredible list of bands, including the exclusive worldwide reunion of The Audition and co-headliners Good Charlotte and Jimmy Eat World.
Slam Dunk has always managed to wow its patrons, even in its very first version that took place at Leeds Millennium Square in 2006. With that in mind, we're taking a look back at every Slam Dunk Festival in the last 12 years and picking out our favourite moments...
A year later, the festival was again only taking place in Leeds but had moved over to the Refectory at Leeds University. Reel Big Fish headlined, with Paramore, Mad Caddies, Sonic Boom Six, Failsafe, Beat Union and a very young, virtually unknown You Me At Six joining them. Sonic Boom Six’s Laila Khan joined Reel Big Fish on stage, making the day truly feel like a “you had to be there!” opportunity.
