As much as the music scene in Leeds is mainly focused on Leeds Festival, held on August bank holiday weekend, a rising event in the music calendar of Leeds is Slamdunk Festival.
Despite the full line up being announced in mid-April, there are some significant names on the line up for this year.
Having previously hosted names such as Panic! At The Disco, this year’s festival hosts such names as Bowling For Soup, Neck Deep and Enter Shikari.
On the Fireball Stage, Bowling for Soup, an American band formed in 1994, have such hits like “High School Never Ends”, “1985” and “Girl All The Bad Guys Want”, look to put on a great show, rocking Millenium Square into the night.
On the Monster Stage, Neck Deep, formed rather more recently, in 2012, however, it remains to be seen what they bring to the festival.
A British band, they recently posted a picture of the line up on Twitter, perhaps hinting at a secret extra appearance for the band.
This is bloody soon, isn’t it?

Headlining the Jagermeister Stage, Enter Shikari will be headlining, marking the tenth anniversary of their debut studio album “Take to the Skies”, while also closing the festival in style.
Slamdunk Festival will be in Leeds on May 28 and it promises to be a great day.
A limited number of tickets are still available, so get them fast.
