SLAM DUNK 2012

Slam Dunk 2012 has been announced for both 26th May in Leeds University and 27th May at the Hatfield Campus of Herts University. Promoter Ben Ray who started this in 2001 has seen the festival grow over the years; “Again this year it’s been hard work, but I’m extremely happy with how the lineup is shaping up so far. Here are just 10 bands out of over 50 artists, so I’m confident the festival can again deliver a lineup of bands that everyone will agree is amazing value. I also thought it was extra important this year to demonstrate the value so tickets have been frozen at 2011 prices!”
