This year’s Kerrang!

So, Slam Dunk Festival returns for another year! Despite the problems faced last year at Hertfordshire University, the festival returns to Hatfield as well as Leeds University. This year there is a bit of a switcharoo, traditionally Leeds was always on the Sunday, but this year sees Leeds on Saturday 28th May (which the CtrlAltRock girls are a bit sad face about!) and Hatfield is on Sunday 29th May. The change in date is apparently to allow for Herts Uni to prepare for Slam Dunk after their Summer Ball on the Friday, which they say will help will ease the problems of last year, allowing them to move the merch village outside. Let’s hope for less rain then!

Whilst not the headliners, the thing CtrlAltRock are most excited for is the reunion of Drive Thru pop-punk legends, The Starting Line. They will be joined by co-headliners Less Than Jake and Reel Big Fish and also on the line-up are Mayday Parade, Framing Hanley, MC Lars, We Are The Ocean, Deaf Havana and 3oh!3. More acts will be announced, so we will be sure to keep you posted!

Line-up consists of The Wonder Years, Framing Hanley, Four Year Strong AND Good Charlotte – so there’s something to suit everyone! Tickets are available from and the dates are as follows:
