Slam Dunk is the best festival going. I’m not bothered about the price being similar to a R&L day ticket, there’s always more to see at Slam Dunk and the crowds are better than R&L. Plus, SD’s

Its more like a day off school people need at Slam Dunk than a day off work lol.

Wow the reaction for suggesting Slam Dunk is booked based on a very young crowd is crazy! Anyone would think it's actually a lie. We'll ignore it's at the end of the May school week off with the

No definitive answer but their Instagram certainly suggests they feel May is unlikely. 

Are this current time the earliest the crowd especially for this is going to receive their 1st vaccine is June time with end of July I believe the current parameter. And of September for the second one so you're getting into very uncertain weather by then. I think if the vaccines came just a bit earlier you may get away with it.

Considering the Government just said May is their earliest estimation to have everyone over 50 given the offer of a first dose vaccine, its plainly obvious Slam Dunk wont run this year. Unless they heavily shift their target audience to the older generation. That pit for While She Sleeps would be a fun one to see.

I fully agree.

I’ve booked a Holiday Inn Express for 10 people which is 5 minutes drive from the festival over Slam Dunk weekend (Friday-Sunday). Breakfast included, free cancellation until August 31st and no payment until arrival. £58 each for 2 nights. 
 

If it goes ahead, all of my mates owe me a pint for the excellent foresight 😄

Great planning ahead and a very good price! Doing the same this weekend for SD and BMTH now that they're both looking more likely

Are you doing North or South? If North, the hotel I booked is a Holiday Inn Express called ‘Leeds - East’. It’s 2.2 miles from the festival 🙂

Usually do South as it's a bank holiday Monday and closer to where I live but with the changed dates we'll be doing Leeds now. Cheers!

I take it you don't bother with the afterparty at Leeds with it being in the centre?

Lineup announcement yes, they said majority of the lineup is staying on, so I would expect some British bands to be announced possibly Neck Deep,Boston Manor,WSTR. 
 

Assuming Don Broco & Sum 41 are still playing Architects would have been a good headliner to replace one.

I really wanted to go to Boston Manor's tour so if they get added that's a big plus for me. There were a lot of bands I wanted to see on the last poster, hoping they've kept a good number of them.

Same here mate! Was going to the Bristol show, I’ll be seeing them at Trees but if they show up at SD as well then bonus.

TWY, Code Orange and Motion City Soundtrack were the three bands I was most looking forward to seeing, genuinely. Sod’s law 😆

Really please with Malev being added, though. This will still be one of the best days of the year.
