It’s that time of the year again. With Slam Dunk Festival just around the corner, the time has come for the stage splits to be announced.
Headliners Enter Shikari obviously headline the main stage alongside Don Broco and a ‘special guest’ which has not yet been announced. Surprisingly, Japanese electro-rockers will also be taking the main stage, higher up on the stage ranks compared to their 2015 set on the Monster Energy stage.
Then again, the Monster Energy stage has a range of pop-punk favourites such as ‘We The Kings’, ‘Trophy Eyes’ and headliners of the stage (and pop-punk favourites) Neck Deep. Returning once again to the beloved festival, we see Zebrahead, Goldfinger and Less The Jake on the previously announced Fireball Stage alongside Texan rockers ‘Bowling For Soup.
Up onto the Key Club stage are Aussie pop-punk hits Tonight Alive set to bring their new music along with them after the release of their new song ‘World Away‘. However, Tonight Alive don’t seem to be the only Australian band, as pop-punk band With Confidence return after making waves at last years festival. Rising stars Waterparks are also set to play alongside Set It Off and Boston Manor across all three days.
The returning impericon stage brings heavy favourites Memphis May Fire, Ice Nine Kills and Oceans Ate Alaska as well as smaller bands such as American Rock Band, Too Close To Touch.
The Signature Stage features famous artists such as Against Me!, The Bronx and Ex-My Chemical Romance guitarist Frank Iero and the Patience. Finally, we have the Rocksound Breakout stage featuring upcoming bands such as Vukovi, Area 11 and Casey. Last year, Kerrang’s Fresh Blood Stage brought us many bands who are blowing up in the music scene such as Waterparks, Creeper and With Confidence, so make sure to check out some of the bands if you have the choice.
