Get excited – Slam Dunk Festival is only a month away. This year, the touring festival is packed with impressive names – from brand new faces, to acoustic sets, to headline shows from pop-punk classics.
The festival will hit venues in Leeds, Hatfield, and Wolverhampton between May 26 and May 28, and it promises to be sensational.
But if you’re not quite convinced yet, here are the top five acts we can’t wait to see play:
Fresh from a lengthy tour with pop-rock super-band All Time Low, Creeper are set to play early on the Jagermeister stage at this year’s Slam Dunk. The Southampton-born horror-rockers are no strangers to performing to massive crowds, having impressed tents and stages alike at Reading and Leeds Festival in the past.
And, take our word for it – it’s a show that shouldn’t be missed.
4. The Dangerous Summer
Maryland’s finest The Dangerous Summer will be taking to Slam Dunk’s Monster stage this year, with their fantastic backlog of pop-rock jams in tow.
The trio have undergone some significant transformations recently, with frontman and founding member AJ Perdomo having both left and rejoined the band since 2014.
Now under the same name but a different structure, we’re excited to hear what The Dangerous Summer sound like in 2018.
If anyone knows how to cater to a festival crowd, it’s PVRIS. They wowed thousands at last year’s Reading and Leeds Festival, and we can’t wait to see what a PVRIS show looks like on a much smaller scale.
The trio will take to the Jagermeister stage just ahead of the headlining act, and what a fantastic way to warm up the crowd!
2. Jimmy Eat World
Arizona emo-rock veterans Jimmy Eat World will be heading up the Monster stage at Slam Dunk this year, celebrating their 25 years together in style.
And this is one that promises to be incredible. The band have a massive back-catalogue of eight studio albums to fill their headline set with, and we’re sure it will include classics, ballads, and a few examples of their newer vibe.
Why wouldn’t you catch this one?
1. Good Charlotte
Well, that’s unless you’re across at the other side of the festival, watching pop-punk legends Good Charlotte headline the Jagermeister stage.
The band have always excelled at festival shows, which to be honest, must be simple for a band with a discography containing anthem after anthem.
We don’t envy everyone who has to make this decision next month…
