Slam Dunk 2019

Recommended Posts

Seeing as there's been a bit of discussion about this on the 2018 thread, I thought I might as well start a new thread for next year's festival.

 

For the headliner, I'm going for either:

All Time Low (possibly playing Nothing Personal in full)

Neck Deep / Sum 41 coheadline

You Me At Six

Architects

 

I think the two main stage thing was a one-off, and next year will be a return to the more traditional format with a separate main stage and "pop-punk" stage.

Thoughts?

I don't think they'll change the layout at least at Birmingham as it worked very well with no crowd cluster problems.

BFMV are probably too heavy? But I reckon they'd be around the right size atm.

Sum 41 defo have a good chance imo.

Probably not too heavy per se, as I reckon Parkway or Architects could do it fine, but I don't think most BFMV fans are Slam Dunk types. Would be cool though.

I reckon Sum 41 is the best bet, with ATL and YMAS deffo in the mix (unfortunately).

Neck Deep/ Sum 41 clashing as co-headliners is so bad/stupid that they'll almost certainly do it 

This year's clash was just as stupid so it's almost certainly gonna be what happens

Think you could probably make the case they're around the same level as Jimmy Eat World. JEW still bigger until Neck Deep put out another album that goes well but Different audience though. JEW would probably be a bigger draw in getting 25-30 year olds who might not usually turn up ever year, but Neck Deep big with the younger crowd.

Yeah but Jimmy Eat World and Good Charlotte have a bigger older crowd & the nostalgia factor. I don't think you could argue that Neck Deep were any bigger than Pvris or Frank Carter.

Neck Deep will sub the main stage I reckon, headliner probably someone like Sum 41.

I can see, if they have the two main stages, having a pop punk headliner like Sum 41 on one stage and a heavier one on the other so someone like Parkway/Architects

Give me Sum 41 and AAR out of your main stage options and I'd be well up for that. Great main stage and some good stuff dotted elsewhere.

I can see I Prevail coming back with a decent spot if they get new music out. will be around 2.5 years since the first album so every chance they could have something new coming soon. Heavy Stage sub maybe.

Neck Deep have said the Don Broco tour will be their last shows for this album (although they've hinted there are EU dates coming so suspect Don Broco have Euro dates to announce for their tour yet) so can probably count them out for 2019. They're going straight into working on the next album so if it's out in time I'd definitely say 2020 headliner contention.

You Me At Six announcing a new album probably puts them firmly on the table.

Architects special Hollow Crown set (We can all dream lol)

They would never do that. They are the kind of band to dwell on the past, no matter how awesome it would be.

All Time Low look like they’ve got some new music coming tonight so new album means potential tour end of year/festivals next year

Got a bit too much of Midwestern Emo in there. I mean, I'd prefer to see more of it myself but I don't reckon a lot of it is likely. Also Turnstile probably wont do Download or Slam Dunk ever. Got such a good relationship with Outbreak Festival that they don't play any other fest over here. Heck, even last year their only UK show last year was in Leeds and was promoted by Outbreak. I can see them doing the same again next year instead

& headlining outbreak this year, however Justanothername is right to an extent - Turnstile are more likely to do their own tour or headline a load of tiny hardcore fests up and down the country than they are to play Download or Slam Dunk. They could play reading, due to their relationship with Dan P Carter.

Forgot about that actually lol. But I'd argue it's different. Trees is a on much different scale and on the other side of the country where as Slam Dunk has a site a few mins walk away and DL is a bigger beast which is around the same time of year. Both of them are far bigger threats to Outbreak than Trees are. Apparently Turnstile were booked to play SD one year but it was cancelled due to Outbreak kicking up a fuss.

I thought they were nailed on for R&L last year but that show ruled them out. It just seems Outbreak really hates anyone stepping on their turf. Maybe they could just do Reading like The Fever 333 but that feels like a bit cheap or maybe Outbreak will be willing to share.

Sum 41 would be a welcome addition to this Festival. Marmozets I can see playing, same for Waterparks as they are blowing up for some reason. Would be nice to have Patent Pending back, they're always fun live. MXPX would be nice instead of Goldfinger. Pretty sure Zebrahead are playing again. Flogging Molly is possible as they're on the Fireball Tour later this year.

The Bronx are probably a good bet to return too since they're on the Fireball tour. Could see Waterparks headlining Key Club stage or whatever it's called this year. Marmozets would be an awesome addition.

Can see Set Your Goals being there after pulling out of this year, still holding out for the UK Mutiny! shows!

Anyone got any hopes/thoughts on full album/anniversary sets, there seems to always be at least one each year.
I mean I think everyone would be happy with ADTR doing Homesick, probably too big for Dunk these days though!
Same for Paramore doing Brand New Eyes.
Probably going to be smaller bands though, FFTL doing dear diary now that Sonny is back and releasing music with them? ahaha!
