In all this fys talk, I was talking to Bobby D of Don Broco, and he told me that they're most likely to be at slam dunk again this year

Maybe but I don't Euro dates are such a big tell tell sign they playing since they're British and wouldn't be as much as a trek for them as an US band would.

Just thinking but would Refused be too big to headline?

No, but seeing as both Set Your Goals and Into It. Over It both have tours that strangely misses out the 26th and 27th, and both have tour dates before and after that, it's pretty confirmed its those

Also guessing 26th will be the Hatfield date and the 27th is Leeds

Thinking about it, i'm pretty sure Four Year Strong will headline, they gonna be in the UK for the Blink 182 tour ( which starts on the 7th June) and it goes with my beliefs of its gonna be a more of a Pop Punk festival again. like 2010 was

I really liked 2010 so lets hope so!

I went to go see sonic boom six last night and they were really good! played a few new songs so do you think they are in for a chance of returning?

Always a chance just to fill numbers up but apparently they have been getting mainstream attention from labels etc for the new album so if they get those connections they be pushed to do loads of fests to promote it.

Love SB6 saw them a few months ago in Leicester, absolutely sick live, but yeah they played in 2009 and 2010, good shout we'll see them on the Ska/punk oriented stage

Have to say I'm a bit disappointed with that - think they spoiled us a bit last year. It's still tempting as a great atmosphere, cheap and quite close too.

Have to say i'm excited, yet disappointed at the same time, was hoping for it to have a pop punk feel like 2010 again.

but yeah Taking Back Sunday, King Blues, Cancer Bats, Set Your Goals and Make Do And Mend, all great bands, and there still 50 bands to go so :)

Just bought my ticket for this, I'm actually really looking forward to it. 2010 wasn't really my thing though, which could explain why.

I really enjoyed last year's line up, but this year's already looking to top that for me! :)
