Fall Out Boy. All Time Low. All-American Rejects. These are just some of the mind-blowing headliners Slam Dunk Festival have had over the past nine years and now they’ve announced their first wave of acts for their 10th Anniversary. The 2015 edition of the three-part one-day festival will take place during the 23 and 25th May, taking place at venues across Leeds City Centre (23rd), University of Hertfordshire (24th) and Wolverhampton City Centre (25th).

Headlining the event will be alternative-rock giants You Me At Six, who will be celebrating their own 10-year anniversary and have said they “can’t wait to close the festival every night”. Joining them will be former headliners and emo rock veterans Taking Back Sunday and alternative rock stars Lower Than Atlantis.

Ska punk legends Reel Big Fish, Goldfinger and Millencolin will all play as well as pop-punk heavyweights The Wonder Years, Neck Deep, Bayside, Fireworks and Knucklepuck.

For those of you wanting something a little heavier, Slam Dunk have got you covered. Heavy hitting punk heroes Gallows will appear, alongside post-hardcore newbies Crossfaith, and punk outfits H2O, Comeback Kid, and Bane.

If that doesn’t get your 15 year old self jumping up and down with joy, you’ll be pleased to know that there’s over 40 more amazing bands to be announced over 7 stages.

Standard tickets are at a steal for £42.90, so get yours while you can!
