ORGANISERS of the Slam Dunk Festival tour are set to reveal more about the 2013 line-up in the coming week.
The all-day rock, pop-punk, ska, emo and metal event returns to the University of Hertfordshire’s Forum site in College Lane, Hatfield, on Sunday, May 26.
The Northern leg of the touring music festival takes place in Leeds the day before the Hatfield date, with a full Midlands show set for Wolverhampton on Bank Holiday Monday, May 27 – the day after Slam Dunk South.
In announcing Four Year Strong’s Tonight We Feel Alive (On A Saturday) as song of the week, Slam Dunk’s official Facebook page posted yesterday (Friday): “Oh and, BTW, we have some big news for you all next week, so keep your eyes peeled!”
American pop-punkers All Time Low have already been confirmed as exclusive headliners of SDF13 in Leeds, Hatfield and Wolves, with Four Year Strong also on the bill.
Taking place across seven stages, the Forum Hertfordshire festival line-up so far also includes The Skints, Pierce The Veil, Sleeping With Sirens, The Wonder Years, Polar Bear Club, The Early November, Memphis May Fire, Fireworks, Woe Is Me, Man Overboard and Mallory Knox, who released their debut album Signals last week.
Tickets for Slam Dunk in Hatfield cost £34, or £38 with after-show party.
