The festival has been revealing their lineup since last year with Bury TomorrowWe Came As Romans, Dance Gavin Dance and more joining acts such as Don Broco, and Four Year Strong.

As countless events and tours started postponing or outright canceling their dates due to bans on gatherings over the coronavirus, Slam Dunk Festival delayed their event until Saturday Sept 5 and Sunday Sept 6.

“For our first time in 15 years, we have found ourselves being forced into postponing Slam Dunk Festival,” says a statement on their website. “This is not a decision we wanted to make, but we are left with no choice. In light of the global situation, it is in the best interest of public health and well-being to postpone the festival until later in the year.”

Now, Slam Dunk is giving a lengthy statement updating fans on their event given the changes taking place.

“With the rescheduled #SDF20 dates confirmed, we’re excited to share our first line-up announcement! All the bands featured on the poster will be hitting the stage with us in September. Some artists are still trying to make the new date work – those who can’t will make announcements on their social channels, so keep a look out. We’ll be doing a round-up of these shortly.”

“We’re also working closely with the Punk in Drublic team to reschedule but please bear with us. As part of a larger European tour, it’s a little trickier – but we’re getting there.
We know everyone is going through a tough time at the moment, so we really appreciate your patience and continued support. SDF has always been about music, community and love – and we’re determined to bring you the best possible Slam Dunk for 2020, regardless of these unforeseen challenges.”

“Keep an eye out over the coming weeks as we add new bands to the line-up, and we hope to see you in September for a slightly adjusted but still awesome event.
Stay safe, stay positive!”
