A History of Slam Dunk Festival

2016 marks the tenth year of Slam Dunk Festival. The festival has quickly become the UK’s premier touring festival, almost being likened as the younger British cousin of America’s massive Vans Warped Tour. To celebrate and to get you more excited for this year's May bank holiday shenanigans, we take a look back at the festival from its inauguration in 2006 right up to what you can expect from 2016.
