Here’s Why UK Pop-Punk Ruled At Slam Dunk Festival


UK pop-punk rules. And it ruled Slam Dunk Festival today. Here are our highlights.

AS IT IS + ROAM = FUN
They're in a deadly, deadly group chat together, but the two bands also play nice, too! Costello from ROAM guested during As it Is' set today.


Yep, it looked awesome.



SPEAKING OF ROAM...
Their set rules. There are circle pits, huge singalongs and an awesome guest spot from Set Your Goals' Matt Wilson on barnstorming set closer 'Deadweight'.

This one.


TRASH BOAT WERE AWESOME, TOO!
ROAM's labelmates and St Albans crew Trash Boat opened up the Key Club stage with a pent-up half hour of hardcore-tinged pop-punk.

Rangy frontman Tobi Duncan leads a small but dedicated few through muddy newbie 'How Selfish I Seem', but pull it out of the bag with a raucous, pained 'Strangers' to close.

THE HARDCORE BROS IN THE CROWD, LESS SO...
It's half past one in the afternoon at Slam Dunk Festival. The only thing a small minority are proving by swinging their fists at teenagers is their own stupidity. Behave and have a crowdsurf instead.

WSTR WAS RIDICULOUS IN THE BEST POSSIBLE WAY
We were going to talk about the singalongs, pits and crowdsurfers for WSTR's set. But then they played 'Break Stuff' by Limp Bizkit, so the only thing you need to do is watch the video below.
 

 

WSTR's Limp Bizkit cover went pretty much as expected.
