  1. Slam Dunk 2018

    I think they're announcing the acoustic stage lineup tomorrow. I know Luke Rainsford is playing it, and apparently he "is going to be announcing the biggest thing in his career to date" tomorrow.
  2. Slam Dunk 2018

    I'd imagine, from the current bands announced, it'd be something like: Good Charlotte Jimmy Eat World Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes (or Taking Back Sunday) Twin Atlantic Creeper ?? ?? The Dangerous Summer Woes Of course I'm probably completely wrong, Thursday and Sleeping With Sirens might end up on there and I wouldn't bet on anybody but Creeper and the headliners to be playing it.

    If you check around you can definitely get a ticket for £49 plus £5 booking fee, I'm looking at leedstickets.com and the booking fee is only £4.90 for North. Everything goes up in price, still if you think about how many acts you're going to see it's still worth the extra fiver.

    I think they went all out last year to try and draw in the ska fans who would be happy to sit at the same stage all day, but it's taken a back seat this year. Last year's ska stage was unbelievably strong. I'm surprised Moose Blood have been announced given the allegations around them that never seem to go away. They're gutter-fill imo anyway. To me though, this is the strongest lineup ever for Slam Dunk. Every genre they book bands of has got a decent fill, and the top 3 lines are all pretty big academy bands that charge £18-£35 for an individual ticket. Definitely the best value festival.
  5. Lineup 2018

    I'd agree with you there Neither do I, he's been shit for years and considering he's pretty much only singing now he truly is woeful. I could see them only touring very sparingly just for the sake of his voice.
  6. Lineup 2018

    Honestly, There Is A Hell... is one of my favourite albums of all time, with Suicide Season also up there somewhere. I can't describe how disappointed I was to see them drop Crucify Me on their last tour before I saw them, my favourite song off the album. I only bought a ticket in the hope they'd pull something special out Whatever the direction they go in, it's gonna be hard to maintain their current fanbase. Do they alienate the ones who like their heavier side even further, or distance themselves from the more mainstream crowd who prefer stuff like Follow You? It'll be interesting to see if they can maintain their current popularity for much longer - if the next album is successful, I think they'll be around for a very long time. If not, who knows?

    That's why I think they'll be on main too tbh but it wouldn't surprise me to see them headline a stage, Slam Dunk like to put a lot of the biggest bands as stage headliners to try and make people buy tickets to multiple dates. I've never had a major problem with getting to another stage but you can be queueing for about 10 minutes, so if there's a band you really want to see it's worth getting to the stage at least 15 minutes before they're due to play just to make sure you're not still queueing outside. If some bands overlap and you stay for the whole of the first band on, you might be a bit late seeing the second one because there do tend to be queues once a band starts as everybody expects to be able to waltz in as they begin.

    They'll either be on main or headlining the stage Tonight Alive headlined last year I think. Millennium Square is the main stage for Leeds, the First Direct Arena is the ska/Bowling For Soup stage. All the other stages are less than a minute from Millennium Square, and most are within the festival walls.

    Pretty sure Palaye Royale (and all their members) do the stupid following and unfollowing thing on Twitter to get loads of real followers, really annoys me when a band does that. Safe to say I've never heard anyone talk about them in a positive manner either. Greyscale and Holding Absence are cool additions though and Stand Atlantic's members are lovely, some of the nicest people I interviewed last year.
  10. Slam Dunk 2018

    I also know that Luke Rainsford is playing but I'd expect him to be on the acoustic stage, could end up on the breakout stage though I guess.
  11. Slam Dunk 2018

    So who do people think are playing the breakout stage? Could see any of these, of course there are so many other options: Greyscale Milestones Higher Power Better Than Never Safeguard Stand Atlantic Holding Absence Yonaka Palaye Royale? Loathe?? About 3 of these are actually gonna play in the end but I'd love to see nearly all of these.
  12. Slam Dunk 2018

    Agree with both points. There are 11 bands I really want to see and another 7 I'd happily see if nothing else was on already, whereas last year I only wanted to see ~8 on the whole lineup and most clashed As long as I get to see Four Year Strong kill it again I couldn't care less tbh
  13. Slam Dunk 2018

    That's tasty
  14. Slam Dunk 2018

    Could it be an announcement filling in the rest of a stage (ska, heavy)? Or just some bands who have finished a tour recently, although I'm struggling to think of any aside from Seaway.
  15. Slam Dunk 2018

    The Front Bottoms have just been announced for a festival in the US on June 1-3rd, doubt they'll be at Slam Dunk now.
