News: Slam Dunk Festival 2014 - first band announcement

The UK's biggest and best touring festival, Slam Dunk, is back for a 9th year! Once again, the festival will cover three days in three locations - Leeds University (Saturday 24th May), The Forum, Hertfordshire (Sunday 25th May), and Wolverhampton Civic (Monday 26th May).

This year's headliner will be The All American Rejects, who will be playing their only UK shows this year at Slam Dunk. The band are well known for their hit singles Swing Swing and Dirty Little Secret, and their four albums which have sold over 10 million copies worldwide. 

Festival organiser Ben Ray says: "I am happier than ever to finally announce the lineup for this year’s Slam Dunk Festival. With such big hit singles, The All American Rejects are a massive headliner for us. I wanted a band who haven’t just toured the UK earlier in the year, or doing other dates around the festival so they are perfect to make the festival unique!

It’s taken me a bit longer to book this year, but really appreciate everyone’s patience and the belief that we will deliver the best event of the summer! There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes that the fans don’t see... bands are only allowed to play one, maybe two festivals in one country over the summer period, and with so many festivals fighting for bands, it’s gets difficult for all of us! It was so important to build on the massive success of last year’s events, I had a lot of sleepless nights! Midlands was especially a great last year as it was the first time we had done the 3rd day of the festival. Not only did it sell out but people were amazed to see the full festival site, including the roads closed off with stages in the middle of them in the city centre of Wolverhampton! Tickets go onsale at 9am Friday 14th Februaryso they are perfect for a Valentine’s gift to the one you love!”

The All American Rejects
