But Holding Absence, Lizzy Farrall and more have been added.

A few changes coming out of Slam Dunk HQ ahead of the festivals next week.

First up, Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! will no longer be playing due to an injury to drummer Bastien Lafaye.

The band have shared this statement:

"Sad to announce we won’t be playing Slam Dunk Festival this September… Our drummer Bastien injured his shoulder pretty bad this summer, we hoped it would get better by the end of August but he’s still in recovery and playing drums at the moment could cause permanent damages to his shoulder so we have to put his long-term health first.

We’re very sorry for this bad news and promise to come back to the UK as soon as we can!

We also would like to thank the Slam Dunk Festival team for his unconditional support and understanding through this difficult decision. Make sure to grab your tickets if you haven’t and go support all the amazing bands on the bill!
Until next time, much love



But a few more names have been added in the form of Holding Absence, The Hara, Lizzy Farrall and Weatherstate.

Speaking of which, the stage times for all of these acts, alongside the rest of the bands on the Key Club stage have been announced too.

Plus it looks like there are going to be TWO special guests as well. It is absolutely all happening.

Slam Dunk Festival will take place on September 04 at Temple Newsam in Leeds and September 05 at Hatfield Park.
