What do we have in common with LeBron James? Our deep and abiding love of strawberry lemonade Bubblicious, of course (remember when he sponsored it back in, like, ’05?) and our obsession with Slam Dunk! The festival, that is. Taking place over May Bank Holiday Weekend, it’ll be a crazy combination of headline artists, new talent, and niche names you can use to impress dates (‘I mean, I don’t work in the music industry, but ...’).

Location, Location, Location

Slam Dunk is spread over three venues, for one day each. Birmingham NEC hosts the festival on the 27th, Leeds City Centre takes over on the 28th, and Hatfield Forum brings it to a finish on the 29th.

Who’s Playing?

The question on everybody’s lips. This year’s Slam Dunk has an inimitable line-up in store, with acts including Goldfinger, The Bronx, Citizen, and The Ataris. Looking to Bowl for Soup or Stray from the Path? You’ll be going to the right place!
