SLAM DUNK FESTIVAL can now announce the final two bands for the 2015 event.
Last years 3rd stage headliners BURY TOMORROW step up to appear as extra special guests on this years line up, playing one of their very last 2015 shows at the festival and seeing their ‘Runes’ album campaign out with a bang! The band played the Radio 1 Week Of Rock in summer 2014, released ‘Runes’ almost a year to the day from the start of Slam Dunk 2014 (May 26th) and saw that said album break into the UK top 40 album chart at 34.The brothers Dani and Davyd will also of course be headlining the Uprawr DJ stage each day as well.
From Dani Winter-Bates, vocalist from BURY TOMORROW – ‘We as Bury Tomorrow are absolutely stoked to be announced as the special guests for slam dunk. It was a pleasure to headline last year. We can’t wait to bring the pain in a fast paced set. Circle pits galore’
This years event will be the heaviest SLAM DUNK FESTIVAL ever, with the likes of Architects, While She Sleeps, Thy Art Is Murder, Trash Talk, The Bronx, Gallows, Comeback Kid, Bane, H2O, Crossfaith and many more BRINGING the mosh to the 3 day event. Following the departure from the bill of Emmure, festival organiser Ben Ray felt there was room for another brilliant, heavy band:
Ben Ray – ‘After Emmure pulled out of the Festival a few weeks ago due to illness I knew we owed it to the audience to get another big heavy band on the bill. Although we had planned to give them a year off, with Dani & Davyd already at the Festival Djing, it was obvious who I could ask to come to save the day! For this, I hope the public will join me in thanking them’
It has also now been announced that new Hopeless Records signing TRASH BOAT won the Kerrang! Magazine Fresh Blood stage Peoples Choice vote, and will be playing at SLAM DUNK on the Fresh Blood stage with the likes of Moose Blood, Seaway, This Wild Life, Rob Lynch Baby Godzilla and many more. The band are one of the most talked about since their debut EP ‘Look Alive’ dropped last summer, and new EP ‘Brainwork’ will be out in time for SLAM DUNK FESTIVAL 2015!
The festival, which takes place over the May bank holiday weekend at 3 sites in Leeds, Hatfield and Wolverhampton, announced a massive increase in capacity at all events late last year. 2015 sees the Leeds event return to its original home, Millennium Square.
