Slam Dunk Festival organisers have announced the first six bands that will take to the stage for 2018.
The festival is set to return for it’s biggest year to date as the legendary and anthemic Jimmy Eat World will take to the stage in their debut Slam Dunk Festival appearance.
They will be joined by emo leaders Taking Back Sunday, party-starters Four Year Strong, post-hardcore heroes Sleeping With Sirens, pop-punk’s hottest property State Champs and fast-rising mob Trash Boat. All six acts will be gracing the Slam Dunk Festival stages as UK festival exclusives.
Four Year Strong says: "We’ve loved the UK ever since our first trip over in 2007, nothing’s changed. Oh yeah, and Slam Dunk is fun too!"
In 2018, Slam Dunk Festival will begin in it’s spiritual home of Leeds, Millennium Square, before travelling to the new location of Hatfield Park, and finishing at the beloved Birmingham NEC.
The first band announcement will be on Wednesday 15th November.
