Slam Dunk Festival 2017 has announced even more incredible acts for this year’s pop-punk extravaganza. Japanese electronic masters Crossfaith, Australian youngbloods With Confidence and the slick pop-punk trio Waterparks will appear alongside Decade, Counterfeit, Milk Teeth, Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness, Black Foxxes, Fort Hope, SHVPES and Puppy over the May Bank Holiday weekend.
In addition to these amazing names, Slam Dunk Festival is pleased to announce that the south site, taking place at Hatfield, The Forum has sold out in record time! Both standard tickets and afterparty tickets for Birmingham and Leeds are still available but festival fans are urged to buy their tickets from official ticket agents as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
Known for their relentless touring, Crossfaith are recognised worldwide for their frenzied fusion of heavy metal and blistering electronica. Set to slam through well-known heavy hits such as ‘Monolith’, ‘Rx Overdrive’ and party-starting ‘Jågerbomb’, Japan’s hottest electro import is raring to go for this year’s shindig.
On their return to the festival, Crossfaith says; “We love playing Slam Dunk, and 2017 is going to be Crossfaith’s best performance at the festival ever! The New Age Warriors are coming to get you, and we can’t wait to see all of our fans in the UK. Let’s go!”
Energetic aussie quartet With Confidence and hotly-tipped Texan trio Waterparks both made their debut at last year’s Slam Dunk Festival – and are set to rip things up again this year.
Returning to the festival after memorable performances in 2015 are Hertfordshire’s Fort Hope, Birmingham’s SHVPES and London’s Puppy. With SHVPES descending from rock royalty, Fort Hope recently hinting on Twitter that they’ve got some big things in the pipeline and Puppy hotly tipped to conquer 2017, May is set to be explosive.
Gearing up for their return, SHVPES’ Griff Dickinson says;
“We played Slam Dunk two years ago & it was such a defining moment for our band. To be asked back & have the ability to add this next milestone is an absolute pleasure. We can’t fuckin’ wait! See you in May!!”
Offering an unparalleled display of pop-punk movers and shakers across 8 stages, Slam Dunk Festival is set to celebrate all things alternative as it welcomes incredible one-off anniversary performances from blistering headliners Enter Shikari, debut albums in full with American pop-rockers Cute Is What We Aim For and We The Kings, a special reunion performance from Madina Lake and the final-ever shows from We Are The Ocean. Whether you’re at Birmingham on May 27th, Leeds on May 28th or Hatfield on May 29th, Slam Dunk Festival 2017 will be the ultimate alternative party of the summer.
