Slam Dunk is set to make its return to the UK next May, where it will be seeing Leeds’ Temple Newsam Estate host Slam Dunk North on May 25 and Slam Dunk South on May 26.

Back in October, the two-day festival shared the first wave of bands, including All Time LowNOFX and New Found Glory.

Now, the 11 more bands have been added to the lineup, including 10 who never played the festival before. That’s exciting.

Bullet For My Valentine, I Don’t Know How But They Found Me and Glassjaw are playing the UK festival for the first time. Plus, Trophy Eyes are going back to the Slam Dunk stage.

Check out the current festival poster and the full lineup so far below. Newly added bands are in bold.
