Slam Dunk Festival: First Announcement

Slam Dunk Festival is back with an absolute banger of an announcement! Slammy D, would not be Slammy D without a host of the finest pop-punk heroes around. Returning to the festival, and this time in the headline spot is You Me At Six, who rose to fame on Slam Dunks very own record label, with ‘Take Off Your Colours‘.

Josh Franceschi (lead vocals) tells us “We are really excited to be headlining Slam Dunk Festival again. We had a lot of fun last time we played there, and can’t wait to close the festival each night. Leeds in particular will always have a special place in You Me’s hearts as our first ever label and management company was based there. 10 years of the band, so it feels right to be part of the festival!”

Former headliners Taking Back Sunday will also be returning to the festival this year. Front man Adam Lazzara tells us he is “Excited to head back to Slam Dunk Festival again in 2015. Man those folks really tell you how it is, so if you can get those shows/crowds up to a certain volume you know you’re doing okay. To be able to get back over for it makes us really happy, we love it there. ”
