Slam Dunk 2018

Recommended Posts

Maybe headline "The Key Club" stage?

I know in Leeds that would be the o2 Academy venue, would seem the right size.

Probs be mid Main though

Get Twin on the Main Stage for a massive mid-afternoon singalong. I can already picture Heart and Soul in the (hopeful) sunshine with a beer. Ace.

Aye that would be splendid just before the headliners.

Hope they tour again if they're active, was one of my favourite gigs last year.

A bit disappointing for me, I'd only see Counterparts and Comeback Kid from that. Looks like they're having a few more established "heavy" bands this year rather than up and coming ones as they said there are more coming on top of the 4 or so already announced.

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.

When will the timings for this be announced? Right before the festival? And do people think it (namely the Leeds date) will sell out before then? Really quite fancy it but don't wanna get a ticket and then have the six or so acts I'm bothered about seeing all clash.

Stage splits came out at the beginning of April last year so you would be able to vaguely see who you’d be able to watch at that point. Unsure about when it’s sold out previously or if it’s even sold out before.

Weren't Good Charlotte announced as a 2nd headliner so surely they would be on the 2nd stage? I hope you are right and I am wrong as that looks a great stage split

They were announced as co headliners so I’m assuming they’ll either sub JEW or they will alternate who headlines at different sites but definitely don’t think they’ll be headlining different stages.

So they were my bad don't know how I managed to mis-read that. I'm glad though as it would of been a tough decision to pick which one to watch.

my dream of Turnstile

Know this post is quite old but they're pretty much ruled out now and I doubt they'll ever play the festival ever. They have a strong connection to Outbreak Festival in Leeds (where they're playing this year) and they love their exclusive deals (like loads as well, they got Title Fight on their only ever European show of 2017 last year for example) and with it being around the same time of year I reckon that Turnstile will always play Outbreak over Slam Dunk any day.

Usually quite late but for Leeds the stage splits are normally announced just before it sells out (like a week or two) so you tend to have a vague idea about how everything will pan out. Still, Slam Dunk do tend to be quite good with their sell out warnings, if they say it will sell out within the month then it probably will. Even then you'll likely find one on the Facebook or UK Pop Punk Trade if you're that desperate to go.

Looks like The Wonder Years are ruled out following their tour announcement for anyone that was holding out hopes for them.

Really happy about it tbh. The Wonder Years are my favourite band and Sorority Noise are one of my favourite bands so them touring together is a dream. Also it's at a better time of year for me, these dates are during my Easter Break while SD is in the middle of exams so it might have been the case that I couldn't go (like the last time they played in 2015).  Going to try to do 2-4 dates for this because why not :P

I'm still massively undecided whether I want to go or not, I wasn't all that keen on No Closer to Heaven at all.
But I loved The Upsides and Suburbia so much!
Just gotta wait for the 10 year tours for them in a few years :P

Can't see them ever doing a 10 year tour of those albums. Greatest Generation will get one though. 

I could see Suburbia possibly getting a tour but The Upsides definitely won't, which sucks cause it's a really solid album

If The Wonder Years did tours anniversary tours for any of the trilogy albums it would be a dream. Though any tour they do is a dream for me :lol:

When I saw a couple of the sound checks on their tour last year they played pretty much just stuff from upsides as they drew songs out of a hat and most put those songs in. Not great for me as I don’t really like pop punk. The greatest generation was the first album of theirs that I really loved. Quite liked suburbia, but I much prefer the band they’ve become rather than the band they were.

4 bands being announced today. Wouldn't be surprised if Mallory Knox is one of them.

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.
