Slam Dunk 24

Preview: Slam Dunk Festival 2024

Slam Dunk Festival is back with another cracking line-up of the best pop-punk, emo, metal, ska, and alternative music. From old school favourites to new, rising stars, fans won’t be disappointed (except for those classic festival moments when your much-loved bands clash!). Here are our must-see bands on the line-up for this year’s Slam Dunk Festival. Who are you excited to see?

You Me At Six – Slam Dunk Stage – 20:50 – 22:15

Earlier this year, it was announced that You Me At Six were bidding farewell after two-decades together. The band have decided that Slam Dunk will be their final UK festival performance, making this a set that is not to be missed. Known for their high energy performances and emo anthems like Underdog and Room to Breathe, you just know they’re going to give a performance of a lifetime! But don’t forget to pack those tissues – things are sure to get emotional for this one!

Waterparks – Kerrang! Stage – 19:45 – 20:45

Although they formed back in 2011, they appear to have exploded onto the scene in the past couple of years. From touring with emo legends My Chemical Romance in the US to their song ‘Telephone’ appearing in the hit Netflix Series, Heartstopper’, this band appear to be unstoppable. Known for their impressive performances, full of lights, lasers and smoke and their impressive range of songs (spanning genres such as pop-punk, rock, electropop and hip-hop), I would get down early for this one as they are also known for having a highly dedicated fan-base so this set could get busy!

LS Dunes – The Key Club Stage – 18:10 – 18:50

During the Covid-19 pandemic, many artists, bands and festivals were unsure whether live music could ever be able to play to a crowd again. During this worrisome time, LS Dunes was created. A post-hardcore supergroup made of our favourite emo bands, with Anthony Green (Saosin and Circa Survive), Frank Iero (My Chemical Romance), Travis Stever (Coheed and Cambria), Tim Payne and Tucker Rule (Thursday). From watching this band on their first UK tour last year, it’s incredibly clear just how experienced each member of this band is. With incredible vocals, high energy, intricate guitar riffs and deeply emotional lyrics, you are certainly in for a treat!

Mallory Knox – Slam Dunk Stage – 15:50 – 16:35

How could we discuss this year’s Slam Dunk Festival line-up without mentioning the return of Mallory Knox? The alternative rock band performed their final show back in October 2019, but are reuniting exclusively for this year’s Slam Dunk Festival. Re-joining the band is lead vocalist, Mikey Chapman, who departed in 2018. There’s no news as to whether there may be more shows from the five-piece band, so take this opportunity to hear classics like ‘Better Off Without You’ and ‘Lighthouse’ while you can!

Bob Vylan – Kerrang! Stage 15:20 – 16:00

Bob Vylan is another name that appears to have exploded onto the alt scene in recent months. Blending hip-hop and punk sounds, the dynamic duo aims to highlight ongoing issues surrounding social justice and equality with thought provoking and challenging lyrics. With songs like ‘We Live Here’ and ‘Hunger Games’, Bob Vylan is bringing that classic punk attitude of hatred for the government, asking all the important questions as to why there are so many issues in today’s society.

The Skints – Monster Energy Stage – 14:55 – 15:35

If ska-punk is your vibe, then head on over to the Monster Energy Stage for a day full of ska legends and rising stars. One of my favourites from the line-up is The Skints, who recently supported The Gaslight Anthem at their show in London this year. The Skints promise to be a compelling addition to the lineup, definitely worth catching. Their track ‘Rise Up’ showcases the band at their best, making them a must-see this year.

As Everything Unfolds – GoPro Stage – 11:40-12:10

Kicking off the festival, as one of the first bands on the line-up, As Everything Unfolds make their Slam Dunk Festival Debut. Renowned for their contagious energy, nu-metal rhythms and impressive vocals, their set is guaranteed to be nothing less than exceptional. They are also thought to become one of Slam Dunk Festival’s break-through acts this year.

Honey Revenge – Kerrang! Stage – 12:30 – 13:00

Having only released their debut album last year, Honey Revenge are a band that many believe will be headlining festivals in years to come. Their catchy lyrics and upbeat style that makes you want to dance has fans hooked all over the world. Having toured with The Used at the back end of last year, Honey Revenge are quickly becoming the band on everyone’s lips.
