The Slam Dunk Festival 2021 line-up had been one that heavy music fans had been waiting for what seemed like eternity. Since its original announcement for Slam Dunk 2020, the line-up had gone through many changes and has somehow managed to stay absolutely brilliant. It really was a day in the diary not to be missed.
2000trees is one of our favourite festivals, ever. The 2019 edition had an absolutely stacked line-up and we at Bring The Noise UK spent all three days rushing around like crazy, trying to catch as much as possible. A arrival slightly later than planned, thanks to the ever wonderful traffic coming out of South Wales, meant that we were unable to catch the very start of the festival. However, we managed to cram a load of great bands in and still had an incredible day one!
Having been around for nearly two decades, Comeback Kid have spent the entirety of their career churning out a seemingly endless stream of metal-infused hardcore punk tracks influencing countless younger bands along the way. Tonight in the DIY punk surroundings of Boston Music Room they took to the stage alongside British hybrid outfit Svalbard.
South Wales hardcore punk quartet Torchbearer have set sail on their latest EP, Against The Tide. After an active tour season and time back in the studio, how does their latest effort fare?
Most consider the festival season a bit of a none starter if they didn't get the chance to make it to Slam Dunk. Travelling through three major UK locations each year during the May bank holiday music lovers in their hordes religiously flock to the event. With a few big changes to the stage arrangements this year, along with a duel headline setup, we took a trip down to this year's event in Leeds to see what all of the fuss was about.
