Do we have many large events left this year? After postponing to September, Slam Dunk have been forced to join pretty much every other major event and roll their festival over to 2021. The full statement is below, along with the dates for next year. As with all the others we’ve reported on, it’s a hell of a shame as they’ve got a beast of a lineup though they are hoping to have as many of the bands as possible reschedule.
It is with a very heavy heart I have to inform you that Slam Dunk Festival 2020 is postponed to 2021. We hung on to hope for as long as we could but with so many factors against us, we have had to accept the fact that it can’t go ahead. We had worked so hard to move it from May to September and with that we thought we had saved it for you, but sadly the outlook is not any better. We had been waiting for clear guidance on the matter and although this is still yet to come, we see no way that things will back to normal enough by September.
Tickets for Slam Dunk Festival 2020, will of course remain valid for Slam Dunk 2021, so please if you can, hold on to them. If not, please contact your ticket provider as your money has always remained safely with them, and they will refund you. There will be a slight rise in ticket prices for 2021 due to increased costs of putting the event on so it will be worth holding on to them. Refunds will be available until the end of September and also tickets will remain on sale at their current price as an early bird ticket until then.
The new dates are:
- Slam Dunk North: Saturday 29th May 2021: Leeds Temple Newsam
- Slam Dunk South: Sunday 30th May 2021: Hatfield Park
We are currently working on the lineup, and should be able to reveal this quite quickly, as most bands due to play this year are able to come back for you in 2021.
Slam Dunk is an independent festival run by a small and committed team, all of whom hugely appreciate your patience and support on this. We will be announcing shortly some details of some merch and possibly other events to support us until we see you again in 2021,
Director, Slam Dunk Festival
