Bullet for My Valentine, Simple Plan, and Saves the Day are just some of the latest additions to the 2019 Slam Dunk Festival lineup. On Tuesday (Nov. 20) festival organizers took to social media to announce the addition of 11 more acts that will make their way to the United Kingdom for the annual, springtime music festival.
“Being asked to headline Slam Dunk off the back of Gravity is a massive compliment on how diverse our band is, we’re very happy and honored that we get regarded as a headliner for Slam Dunk,” Bullet for My Valentine frontman Matt Tuck told Metal Hammer about the recently announced news.
Mirroring Tuck’s sentiment is Saves the Day frontman Chris Conley: “We are so excited to play Slam Dunk next year! It’s always a blast to come overseas and sing Saves songs with all our fans. See you soon!!”
In addition to Bullet for My Valentine, Simple Plan, and Saves the Day, Glassjaw, Knocked Loose, the Get Up Kids, Turnstiles, Tiny Moving Parts, the Menzingers, I Don’t Know How But They Found Me, and Slam Dunk veterans Trophy Eyes will round out the second wave of performers.
The newest additions will join previously announced acts All Time Low, NOFX, New Found Glory, Waterparks, Story of the Year, Gallows, Mad Caddies, and Silverstein on the upcoming event’s roster.
