Slam Dunk Festival have finally announced their highly-anticipated clash-heavy stage splits for this year’s edition, taking place in Birmingham, Leeds, and Hatfield between the 27th and 29th May.

The ska-punk inspired Fireball Stage is headlined by the band all the bad guys want, pop-punk legends Bowling For Soup as well as the return of Slam Dunk legends Less Than Jake and Reel Big Fish. Supporting them will be Goldfinger, Mad Caddies, Zebrahead, The Ataris, and Fenix.
The Monster Energy Stage is mixing the old and new together for a mix of modern-day nostalgia, with headliners Neck Deep finishing the night for The Movie Life, We The Kings, The Maine, Cute Is What I Aim For, WSTR, Trophy Eyes, and Like Pacific.
The Key Club Stage brings Australia’s alt-rock exports Tonight Alive to the Slam Dunk faithful with new music on its way, with sets from Set It Off, Seaway, Waterparks, With Confidence, Boston Manor, Blackfoxxes, Decade, and Fort Hope in tow.
The Signature Brew Stage packs up the heat for those of us who like our drinks a little punkier and grungier in the shape of Against Me! and The Bronx, as well as My Chemical Romance axe-slinger Frank Iero and the Patience. Touring pals Citizen, Turnover, Milk Teeth, Sorority Noise, and Puppy all join in on the fun with Crime In Stereo filling the lineup out.
The Impericon Stage is headlined by no other than metal-core massives Memphis May Fire, with support from the recently reunited Madina Lake as well as Stray From The Path, I Prevail, Counterfeit, Ice Nine Kills, Oceans Ate Alaska, Shvpes, and Too Close To Touch.
The Rocksound Breakout Stage will feature performances from Area 11, Casey, Homebound, Makeout, Ocean Grove, Sylar, The Gospel Youth, and Vukovi.
