Slam Dunk Festival 2021

Recommended Posts

Bank holiday weekend at the end of May 2021.

Imagine the lineup will be very similar. First announcement for the Punk In Drublic stage below. Hoping to see Don Broco and Billy Talent back next year!

I was hoping for Frank Turner to play that stage and for Mongol Horde to play elsewhere 

I think Frank is on the rest of the PID tour, but not the Slam Dunk dates.  Maybe on another stage though?

Nah, he's probably clashing with Lost Evenings again, probably easy to assume he'll be doing it in Germany again like he'd planned to.

I think they will some suprises next year,i I think Don Broco and Sum 41 will return, hopefully Alkaline Trio show up, can't see Code Orange playing think they will have a big slot at download or the pit headliner at R&l and Neck Deep to be the secret slot.

Safe to say Billy Talent will be back they are in Europe same time as they were meant to be this year, Sum 41 are in Europe in June so they could be back, unless they've been offered a slot at Download before hand.

Great to see both headliners back, good start. Not sure whether I should get tickets now as I returned mine as I couldn’t attend the September dates but now it’s bank on the bank holiday.

I'm very reserved about buying any gig/festival tickets for next year at the moment truth be told. Definitely want to go to as many as I can, just really unsure when is the right time to start sinking money into them again.

Yeah it’s definitely difficult to know when to start buying tickets again however I’ve put the money aside for the ones I originally booked and got money back for so it’s almost as if I’m not spending it. And I guess if things still aren’t happening they’ll get postponed again or cancelled and receive refunds. I’m also trying to buy mostly local gigs, if any, as it doesn’t matter what day of the week they are if they get rescheduled. With things beginning to come back to normal I’d expect gigs to be back by March 2021, not sure if that’s hopeful though but we’ve come a long way since March this year and that’s only 3 and a half months. Really starting to miss love music now though, I enjoy it so much. I need things to look forward to for when this is over!

You won't have to worry about a sellout anytime soon and the ticket price doesn't rise as time goes on. If they can get Alkaline Trio back that probably seals it for me but I don't see Download taking anything major they had. I think the signs that Diwnloads Avalanche Stage will struggle to compete with SD are already there. But Download for me had one of the most interesting additions I've seen....it's extremely rare that I feel the need to be there for two days, unfortunately I've no desire to have gone on the Saturday but the eventbis close enough that I'd br happy to find a mate willing to go andcwe can drive up separately on different days.

True but think they’ve mentioned a rise in prices in October time, probably to sell more tickets and cover losses this year more than anything. Alkaline Trio would be great as long as they aren’t headlining a stage.

Agreed. Just a shame the PID lineup is pretty poor this time round for me.

A run with Alkaline Trio, Billy Talent, Sum 41 would be nice chuck fidlar and press club onto the lineup aswell

Yeah a run of then would be decent.

Not really slam dunk news but I remember a lot of assumptions Creeper were the secret band this year. Now that download has announced them for next year, do bands get shared a lot between the two? It probably helps they are a British band.
