First up, we have probably the top upcoming rock band in the UK at the moment… Deaf Havana. Slam Dunk Festival will see the first UK full live performance of the band in 2013 and will be one of only a handful of festival performances of the summer.

"We are really excited to get back to Slam Dunk, we kind of made a promise to not do much whilst writing and recording our new album but we always have an amazing time at Slam Dunk, and with the added Wolves show we are cannot wait. Plus - the after show, well...bit of fun isn't it" says the band.
The band will use these shows to exclusively air new material from the album they are currently away recording.

Ska Punk will always stay close to the heart of Slam Dunk Festival and continuing a yearly theme the festival is excited to announce another special reunion. Titans of the UK scene King Prawn will be playing their first show in 10 years at Slam Dunk Festival 2013.

The band have released the following statement! "We hope you'll join us in sharing a leisurely stroll through some of our finest material both old and older in a set jam packed with firm favourites the whole family can enjoy."

Already boasting one of the best pop punk lineups ever assembled, we're taking things one step even further! Chicago Drive Thru heroes Allister will not only be coming over to play the festival but for the 10th anniversary of its UK release they will be playing their seminal album ‘Last Stop Suburbia’ in full. Expect to hear one of the biggest sing alongs of the festival to one of the best pop punk anthems ever …. ‘Somewhere On Fullerton’

Not stopping there, we're proud to see the return of US pop punk band Transit and probably the biggest true pop punk band in the UK…. Me Vs Hero.

Now for something a little heavier… Scottish pop metallers Yashin who announced last week they would be playing the new Irish Slam Dunk last week, can now confirm they will be joining the bill for the main 3 festivals.

After being one of the hottest new bands of last year, The Word Alive will be tearing things up for the second year in a row but this time will be bringing Epitaph’s Our Last Night with them.

And finally after last playing Slam Dunk Festival with Dance Gavin Dance, the always controversial but one of the best voices in rock Jonny Craig will no doubt bring an army of loyal fans to hear songs from his previous bands and new solo material.

This line up is looking really good now, it just needs some While She Sleeps, Bury Tomorrow, Misser and Go Radio(one can only dream that they'll come here eventually) to make it perfect.
