Slam Dunk Fest unveils second waves of 2020 performers

Slam_Dunk_2020_Header.jpg

The year isn’t even over yet, and we’re already getting bombarded with spring music festival announcements. Great news for our “treat yo’ self” lifestyles, but not for our wallets.

On Wednesday (Oct. 23), the masterminds behind the United Kingdom’s Slam Dunk Music Festival unleashed the second batch of artists who will take over their stages in late May 2020.

Sum 41 has been tapped to take on the role of headliners alongside previously announced (and hometown boys) Don Broco. Also added to next year’s roster are Billy Talent, The Used, The Story So Far, Basement, Grayscale, and Dream State.

As if that wasn’t enough, the current iteration of the lineup will also feature not one, but two reunion shows thanks to We Are The In Crowd and Your Demise.

And what would a music festival be without any serious hijinks? NOFX’s Punk in Drublic will return once again to the weekend-long event with a little help from their friends.

The new addition to the Slam Dunk Fest lineup comes a month after the first waves of bands were announced for the annual May Bank Holiday event.

The Wonder Years, Mayday Parade, Four Year Strong, Knuckle Punk, Ice Nine Kills, Bayside, Issues, Hands Like Houses, and the newly reunited Motion City Soundtrack were previously confirmed as performers for next year’s event.

Slam Dunk Fest will return to its homes of Temple Newsam in Leeds on Saturday, May 23, 2020, and Hatfield Park in Hatfield on Sunday, May 24, 2020.

Tickets for the event are currently available on their website with several options to pick from.

New Found Glory to Headline Glamour Kills Tour

nfg

Yesterday was all about Yellowcard and today is all about New Found Glory.

Earlier in the day, we reported how a new New Found Glory track found its way onto the internet. The band had not acknowledged the track, which is titled “Selfless,” but now we have gotten confirmation that the song floating around is theirs and just released the official music video for it.

Aside from the news of the new song and the title of their new album, Resurrection, the band have revealed they will be headlining this year’s Glamour Kills Tour alongside Fireworks, We Are the In Crowd, Red city Radio, Better Off, and Candy Hearts.

Tickets for the tour are currently up for sale on Glamour Kills’ website. For those wanting to purchase tickets, there are bundles that are currently being offered and might be kind of cool to look into.

For $40 fans can get the “Resurrection Bundle” which includes general admission to the show as well as NFG’s Resurrection on CD and Digital Download on the day it comes out.

For $75 fans can get the “Premium Resurrection Bundle” which includes general admission, Resurrection, a signed album lithography and an exclusive tee.

The final bundle to be offered for the tour is the “VIP Resurrection Experience” which includes an exclusive soundcheck performance, meet and greet, photo opp, general admission, Resurrection in three different forms (CD, LP and Digital Download), a signed album lithography, exclusive tee and commemorative VIP laminate. All that will push you back $100.

The Glamour Kills Tour will begin its trek across the United States on October 3 in San Diego at the House of Blues and will wrap up on November 8 in Santa Cruz at the Catalyst (very fitting).
