Slam Dunk started out as a pop-punk club night at The Cockpit, Leeds in the early 00's. Out of the success of the club night Slam Dunk started putting on international touring artists from the genre like Fallout Boy, Paramore and Panic! at The Disco in Leeds, before developing Slam Dunk Festival.
Slam Dunk Festival is now the number one pop-punk, rock and alternative festival in the UK held over 2 fully outdoor sites in Hatfield Park and Temple Newsam Park in Leeds to over 50,000 Rock Fans.
This festival has been cancelled due to the Coronavirus spread fears.
