Slam Dunk Festival will be welcoming an Aussie invasion with open arms, bringing over three of the biggest names from down under. First of the three is Tonight Alive, who have recently smashed the Kerrang! Tour and received an incredible reception. Heroes For Hire, will be flying over for their first ever UK performance and we cannot wait for that to be at this year’s Festival, adding to the hottest pop punk line-up this year! Last but not least of our Aussie trio is another favouriteHouse VS Hurricane, who will be bringing their progressive post-hardcore back over to the UK for an explosive performance.

Following the international vibe that seeps through the Festival this year, Slam Dunk are pleased to announced that Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! will be the first ever French band to perform at the three day spectacular. Having made a brief visit over to the UK before, the quintet will be making their first major appearance this year at the Festival.

After previously announcing that ska punk heroes King Prawn are reforming to play at the Festival, Slam Dunk thought what better than to welcome along one of the band’s touring partners…. that’s right, confirmed for this year are ska punk classics [Spunge]! Hotly tipped up and coming British outfits Blitz Kids and Gnarwolves are further additions to the Festival, with Slam Dunk extremely keen to support the British music scene with some of the hottest acts emerging from the country over the past year.
