In Australia, we’re only just beginning our 19/20 summer festival season (Good Things is up first, who’s counting down?!) our friends in the UK are already prepping for their massive summer next year. Pop/punk festival Slam Dunk is first of the European festivals to announce their lineups and…it’s so freakin huge, you might wanna start saving your $$$ now!
Last month, the first Slam Dunk announcement consisted of DON BROCO, State Champs, Mayday Parade, The Wonder Years, Motion City Soundtrack, Four Year Strong, Knuckle Puck, Ice Nine Kills, Issues, Bayside and…doing it for the home team, HANDS LIKE HOUSES! Pretty epic, right?
But wait… THERE’S MORE!!!
The second announcement of bands came through overnight, and if you’re a fan of punk, pop/punk, and everything in between, you’re gonna lose your shit! ARE YOU READY?
Joining Slam Dunk for their 2020 edition is Sum 41, Billy Talent, The Used, The Story So Far, Basement, Dream State and Grayscale. They’ve also scored punk legends NOFX and Pennywise to add to the mix.
The best thing about this new announcement though is the reunion of two former bands… in a world exclusive, US pop/punk kids WE ARE THE IN CROWD are getting back together for the UK festival, and UK hardcore act YOUR DEMISE will also make their comeback.
Like I said…HUUUUGE!!!
If you’ve still got your Tax Refund lying around, tickets are available now and return flights to London are looking pretty good right now, so if you’ve got the $$$ hit up your travel agent mate for some cheap fares!
