Slam Dunk 2018

Recommended Posts

Just looking at the Download Paris/Madrid posters.
Thinking we could probs end up with a few of them, some might be a bit of a push though.
Also some of these I don't even know the size of currently so feel free to let me know what you guys think.

Moose Blood (Main stage?)
Thrice (Impericon?)
Underoath (Impericon again? Can't decide if they'd be too big as I predict Frank Carter to headline that stage. I just can't gauge them these days)
Hollywood Undead (I don't even know, Impericon/Key club stage? Rock Sound seem to love them generally so if they're a sponsor I can see them pushing this maybe? )
While She Sleeps (Impericon under Frank Carter?)
Billy Talent (Headlining what was the Sig Brew stage this year?)
NOFX (Headlining the Fireball stage?)

Tbh was hoping for while she sleeps to be their this year but can't see a space for them as they are bigger than Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes. We haven't really had any metal bands announced yet have we? Also could mayday parade will be there?

Sleeps aren't bigger than Frank, I don't think. Surely guaranteed to be at Downlaod. 

NOFX and Billy Talent would make the clashes such a bastard. Fortunately I think neither will be there.

I did consider Mayday but thought maybe not if Download had them this year, I could be wrong and they play both though.
I just thought bands tend to do one or the other these days?

I consider Frank to be bigger than WSS tbf, could be a very strong sub for Frank tbf.

I think the whole day is just gonna be one huge nightmare in terms of clashes aha!
I'm still pondering on the anniversary shows that could appear that seems to be a staple for the day, hoping for Set Your Goals Mutiny shows like I did this year aha!

They're going to do it every year now I imagine, if they're available. They called them their house band this year. That's surely the big clue.

If Frank is a stage headliner it's gonna be a tough choice between them, PVRIS and JEW. damn!!

I'm hoping (and thinking) Good Charlotte will be closing.

I reckon the person that said they'll take turns will be right.

Oh I missed Bury Tomorrow from those posters too, seeing as they're basically a house band too like Zebrahead aha.
I have no doubt they'll be there, prefer they didn't rebook bands so often but oh well aha.

I'm gonna go ahead and predict that As It Is will be there also and probably be announced post their tour?
Download had them last year and they seem pretty fitting for the Key Club stage.

Sadly I agree.

Any chance of The Front Bottoms, or are they too big for slots that are open?

I think they could be there, they're only slightly bigger than Tonight Alive I think.

Yeah they played it two years ago I think, with the new material they're certain sure.

That'd be the clincher for me.

I'm seeing them in Manchester in a couple of weeks, I'll let you know if they say anything about any festivals.

Last year the fourth wave with Neck Deep, Turnover etc. came on Wednesday 1st February, so probably in the next couple of weeks.

Also this got announced today, I'd expect every band on here that's not already announced for Slam Dunk to be playing as well.
