Embodying all aspects of alternative culture, Slam Dunk Festival have revealed the third wave of new names featuring punk icons, hardcore trailblazers, and rock transformers from all over the world.
Refused, led by compelling frontman Dennis Lyxzén, are set to make their debut appearance at Slam Dunk Festival. Since their formation in 1991, the Swedish radicals have inspired countless alternative artists with their revolutionary attitudes and progressive sounds flirting with punk, hardcore, and everything in-between. As one of the most important bands of the last three decades, their appearance at Slam Dunk Festival will see both festival fans and performing bands honor their longstanding contribution to the scene.
Comeback Kid are returning to Slam Dunk Festival, set to tear up Leeds Temple Newsam site after christening the then-new Hatfield Park venue with their high-intensity hardcore in 2018. Also returning to the festival, Deez Nuts are set to go hard, doubling down with fierce riffs and monstrous hooks taken straight from their back catalogue and new album ‘You Got Me F**ked Up’.
Andrew Neufeld of Comeback Kid says;
“A couple years back, I remember getting scared to play Slam Dunk because all the bands were killing it so hard, but ‘imma say that the CBK concert goers did not disappoint! They made sure to let us know they were coming in hot, and we made triple sure back!”
Tickets to the Slam Dunk Festival Opening Party are £12 + booking fee. The event will take place at Leeds O2 Academy on Friday May 22 from 10 p.m. until 2 a.m.
