Taking Back Sunday will also play at Slam Dunk 2018, while Four Year Strong, Sleeping With Sirens, State Champs and Trash Boat have been added to the line-up. All of the acts are UK festival exclusives.
“We are sad to leave the University, however the event was selling out months in advance so we knew we had to move it and make it bigger due to demand from the fans.”
The festival will take place from May 26-28 2018, with the festival set to be held at Leeds City Centre (May 26), Hatfield Park (May 27) and Birmingham NEC (May 28).
Slam Dunk Festival has announced the first wave of acts for its 2018 festival – check out the first confirmed names below.
With the full ticket price set to be £49 (or £55 to include the “infamous afterparty”) plus booking fees, the 2018 festival will also introduce an installment scheme for ticket-buyers. Fans will be able to reserve their ticket for a small cost and pay the rest in installments up to the event.
Speaking about next year’s festival, Slam Dunk’s Ben Ray said: “Slam Dunk Festival South has been taking place in Hatfield since 2010 so the town has truly become our home. Therefore, I am extremely happy we managed to find a new site still within the town.
The annual festival will once again pitch up at three locations across England, though Slam Dunk’s southern leg will take place at a new venue in Hatfield.
