Slam Dunk Festival have teamed up with Fireball UK this year to curate an all-American ska punk/classic pop punk stage, and today the line-up is completed by Zebrahead, The Ataris and Fenix TX.
They will join the previously announced Bowling For Soup, Less Than Jake, Reel Big Fish, Goldfinger, Mad Caddies and MC LArs on the stage.
“Many people know that this stage is very close to my heart,” says festival director Ben Ray. “When I started the Slam Dunk club night back in 2001, bands like Less Than Jake & Reel Big Fish were the one’s that helped shaped it and established the brand. It is an honour to be able to bring these bands together for the biggest bill of it’s kind ever in the UK.”
Tonnes more bands have also been confirmed for Slam Dunk Festival, including headliners Enter Shikari plus Don Broco, Beartooth, Neck Deep, Tonight Alive, Citizen, The Bronx, Against Me! and many more.
2017 will see an expansion across all three sites, with the addition of the First Direct Arena in Leeds as the second stage, another outdoor stage in Hatfield and an expanded site in Birmingham.

Sat 27th – BIRMINGHAM – NEC (Slam Dunk Midlands)
