Just a month after the city of Leeds saw the popular Live at Leeds festival, the iconic Slam Dunk returned to it’s Northern venue in it’s 11th year as a festival.
The lineup this year looked promising, with electro-rock band Enter Shikari headlining in celebrations of their 10-year anniversary of their debut album ‘Take to the Skies’.
Bands such as Bowling for Soup, Neck Deep and DON BROCO also headlined the festival, amongst 40 other bands, playing 8 venues across the city centre.
For me, this was my second ever festival that I’ve been to and honestly? it was the best experience of my life.
Pop Punk has always been my go-to genre of music and being able to see bands that I’ve never been able to see was amazing!
It was also another chance for me to meet and watch my favourite band (The Maine) play live, after not seeing them for 4 years.
I also got to see other bands like DON BROCO, We are the Ocean, Bury Tomorrow etc.. and I even crowd surfed to Enter Shikari – like how amazing is that!?
If you have never been to Slam Dunk and are curious as to whether it’s worth the money, trust me, it is.
I would do anything to relive that day again.
