Qemists, Young Guns added to Slam dunk bill


The Qemists, Coldrain, Heart Of A Coward, Young Guns and As It Is are among the latest bands to be confirmed for this year’s Slam Dunk festival.

A batch of 10 further acts have been announced today for the 10th anniversary of the three-day, three-city event. The latest groups confirmed also include Trash Boat, WSTR, King Prawn, Spunge, Astroid Boys and The One Hundred.

They join previously announced headliners Panic! At The Disco and the likes of Of Mice & Men, New Found Glory and more.

On the festival’s 10th year celebrations, Slam Dunk founder and director Ben Ray said: “I had no idea back then what I thought would be a one-off event would still be going now, let alone continue to grow to the size it has become.”

Slam Dunk takes place at Leeds City Centre on May 28, Birmingham NEC on May 29 and the University of Hertfordshire, Hatfield, on May 30. Tickets are on sale now.
