In case you haven’t heard, the second announcement for this year’s Slam Dunk festival is on Wednesday. I’ve been wondering which bands should be announced, and I think I’ve narrowed it down to ten that I’m really hoping for… Fingers crossed that at least one of these bands will be added to the line up.
10) Brand New
8) Tonight Alive
Another UK band who had a huge 2015, Dead! would be the perfect fit at a festival that really supports homegrown talent.
If they played Slam Dunk, their set would need to include: ‘Phantom’.
5) Breathe Carolina
4) Don Broco
I want Don Broco to play for purely selfish reasons: if I see them live this year, I’ll have seen them ten times. They’ll be my first band in double figures, and that’s an achievement I want to gain.
If they played Slam Dunk, their set would need to include: ‘Thug Workout’.
3) A Static Lullaby
A Static Lullaby reunited at some point last week – literally days ago – so I think it would be brilliant for their debut UK reunion show to be a festival appearance.
If they played Slam Dunk, their set would need to include: ‘The Shooting Star That Destroyed Us All’.
2) The Early November
1) Hawthorne Heights
