Cancer Bats say: “Let me tell you this, planet Earth – I’m not gonna even pretend to hide how freakin’ pumped we are to be playing a stage packed with all of our best homies all day.

“This lineup is the sickest Space Jam of a Slam Dunk lineup since Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny teamed up to save the universe!”

The Bronx add: “We are super-stoked to be back on the court for Slam Dunk 19! Make no mistake, we are going to fuck shit up.”

Slam Dunk Festival North will take place on May 25 at Temple Newsam Park in Leeds, with Slam Dunk South happening the following day at Hatfield Park, Hatfield.
