Slam Dunk organiser Ben Ray has also made the unusual announcement that 2 of the 3 events are near to selling out,. "People on social media are continually asking us how many tickets we have left and when the events will sell out. As this may be the last pay week for many to buy tickets, I felt it necessary to speak out. We are certain that the South site in Hatfield, which now is the smallest, will sell out by the end of the next month and before the next payday. This probably will be the same for Leeds but with that I’m a bit less certain. I’m happy to say though that the new large site at the NEC can accommodate more, so we should have tickets left till a lot nearer the event. We don’t feel as bad when people can’t get tickets if we have given them plenty of warning!"

There will be more announcements to come from the world of pop punk, rock and punk over the coming weeks.
