Slam Dunk Festival 2021 announces more artists

We’ve all been left with a hole in our hearts with the cancellation of festival season this year (gee thanks covid). But all the organisers are doing their best to make sure 2021 makes up for it. Slam Dunk Festival is no different as they announce another monster set of acts for 2021!

Slam Dunk Festival has announced more incredible acts for its 15th anniversary celebration in 2021!

The majority of the acts announced were destined for the 2020 lineup but have agreed to return. Later this year, there will be another final announcement for the lineup, however, it will not feature any more 2020 acts.

Director Ben Ray said: ‘Not delivering Slam Dunk Festival in 2020 was hard, but with 2021 being the 15th anniversary we will be sure to make it a special one for us all. With overwhelming support shown by our fans by keeping hold of their tickets, I felt it was important to try to give them as many of the artists they bought their tickets for as possible. Therefore I’m so happy to be able to confirm the majority will be returning’.
