Slam Dunk is under a month away now so here are some bands that I’m looking forward to seeing play this year. I wasn’t overly ecstatic with this years line up, but there are definitely some decent bands worth seeing. The band I’m looking forward to seeing most is Being As An Ocean. I’ve really gotten into them lately and their album How We Both Wondrously Perish has become addictive. I was also excited to see that Crossfaith were on the list as I saw them at Reading festival last year and they were incredible. They were on at the start of the day and set a high bar for the bands following after. Their performance was incredible and I can’t wait to see them go crazy again. Headliner’s You Me At Six are definitely one to see if you’re going this year, although this will be my fifth time seeing them so if they clash with someone else I really like I may take a miss. I am really tempted to see them play songs from Take Off Your Colours though, ah teenage memories.
I haven’t listened to Pvris an incredible amount but I have liked what I’ve heard and may check them out if I have some time on the day. I saw Patent Pending live when they supported Bowling For Soup and they were really funny and entertaining. They have a super pop punk vibe with some upbeat funny lyrics for the day. I like to check out new bands at events like this and my friends have been recommending Beartooth quite a lot. I have listened to them on YouTube and like their sound, so I’m hopefully going to check them out at Slam Dunk too.
Are you going to Slam Dunk this year, if so who do you plan on seeing?
Thanks for reading, April
