After the sudden cancelation of the 2020 festival due to the pandemic, Slam Dunk has now announced the full list of names returning for its 2021 event.
With Sum 41 and Don Broco returning as joint headliners, this year's festival will also see performances from the likes of NOFX, She Sleeps, Comeback Kid, The Story So Far, and We Are The In Crowd, as well as new additions Crown The Empire, Escape The Fate, Hacktivist, Malevolence and Snuff. Slam Dunk has also moved from its regular May dates to 4th September for Leeds' Newham Temple Park and 5th September for the Hatfield Park events to give more room between the ending of lockdown restrictions.
Speaking about the new announcement, festival director Ben Ray said, "It was a shame we have had to move the festival again from May however we feel the guidance now is clear enough to know the event will happen in September. With over 2 months between the June 21st reopening date and the festival we certainly think there is enough breathing space! After having announced the date change after the government announcement, we felt only right to take a bit of time to check with artists who could still do the new dates, before we re announced them. Now we can reveal these and I am so happy so many can make the new dates!"
