Having firmly established itself as the best alternative festival for pop-punk and rock revellers alike, Slam Dunk Festival 2017 has announced the third-wave of fantastic acts for its biggest year yet.
Beartooth, Tonight Alive, Against Me! (pictured), The Bronx, Goldfinger, Mad Caddies, The Movielife, Trophy Eyes and Like Pacific are to take to the stage for Slam Dunk's 2017 edition.
Headlined by the searing electronic masterminds Enter Shikari as they celebrate the 10th anniversary of their monumental debut album Take To The Skies, the festival also welcomes alt-rock men of the moment Don Broco, pop-punk pros Bowling The Soup, ska punk outfit Less Than Jake, Californian ska mob Reel Big Fish, and American east coast pop-rock powerhouses We The Kings and Cute Is What We Aim For.
Slam Dunk Festival has won ‘Best Festival’ at the Kerrang! Awards in both 2014 & 2015. Widely regarded as the biggest awards in rock, the festival beat strong competition from major events such as Reading / Leeds and Download. It has also been in the final shortlists for ‘Best Metropolitan Festival’ at the UK Festival Awards, in 2013, 2014 & 2015, and ‘Best Festival’ (up to to 15,000 daily capacity) at The Live UK Awards 2015.
Slam Dunk Festival will take place at Genting Arena and The NEC on Saturday 27 May.
