The Slam Dunk 2015 itinerary looks a bit like this:

MAY 2015
23 - SLAM DUNK NORTH LEEDS City Centre (festival spread across Millennium Square, O2 Academy, Leeds Beckett University & Outdoor Stages)
24 - SLAM DUNK SOUTH HERTFORDSHIRE Forum
25 - SLAM DUNK MIDLANDS WOLVERHAMPTON City Centre (festival spread across Wulfrun Hall, Civic Hall, Civic Bar & Outdoor Stages)

Yes, you may have noticed that the fest is moving away from its regular home at Leeds University for the North date. Whyso? Here's an explanation from their website (sort of):

"Departing from Leeds University (who have been wonderful hosts for the past 8 events!), 2015 sees the festival returns to its original setting in Millennium Square. But that’s not where it stops! #SDF15 takes over a chunk of Leeds City Centre (Millennium Square, O2 Academy, Leeds Beckett University, as well as the surrounding areas) to bring you the best there is to offer in Pop Punk, Ska, Punk and Hardcore."
