Atreyu, Real Friends, and the Cancer Bats are just some of the latest additions to the 2019 edition of the Slam Dunk Festival. On Wednesday (Jan. 16), festival organizers took to social media to announce the addition of ten more acts that will make their way to the United Kingdom for the annual, springtime music festival. Milk Teeth, WSTR, Seaway, Pagan, The Word Alive, The Bronx, and Angel Du$t round out the third wave of band announcements.
“Let me tell you this planet Earth – I’m not gonna even pretend to hide how freakin’ pumped we are to be playing a stage packed with all our best homies all day,” say the Cancer Bats in a press statement.
“This lineup is the sickest Space Jam of a Slam Dunk lineup since Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny teamed up to save the universe.”
The Bronx add: “We are super-stoked to be back on the court for Slam Dunk ’19! Make no mistake we are going to f**k shit up.”
The newest additions will join previously announced acts All Time Low, NOFX, New Found Glory, Waterparks, Story of the Year, Gallows, Mad Caddies, Silverstein, Bullet for My Valentine, Simple Plan, 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 Trophy Eyes on the upcoming event’s roster.
