Welcome to Slam Dunk Festival! 

GALA PR has secured another huge client win!

Firmly cemented as a must-attend on the UK festival circuit, Slam Dunk has been serving up a healthy dose of rock, alt, pop-punk, metal and emo since 2006.

Slam Dunk Festival has grown from a weekly gathering to a multi-stage, double-site greenfield extravaganza and the UK’s biggest independent rock festival. 

Celebrating all things pop-punk, emo, rock, ska, and metal, for any devoted rocker or wannabe mosher, it is a must-attend.

Located across two sprawling sites in Leeds and Hertfordshire, Slam Dunk is in a league of its own – described by NME as “one of the UK’s most exciting young festivals”, Kerrang added “nothing gets us excited for the summer like Slam Dunk festival”.

Over 60+ acts perform on the day with past line ups including Paramore, All Time Low, Panic! At The Disco, Enter Shikari, Jimmy Eat World, Don Broco, Sum 41 and NOFX. 

Last month, over 40 acts were announced for 2024 including You Me At Six, I Prevail, Waterparks, The All American Rejects, Asking Alexandria, Funeral For A Friend, Pale Waves and more.

GALA will work with Slam Dunk Festival on a multi-channel 360 campaign, engaging media from regional press, national music reviewers and features writers, TV and radio, music media and more, as well as maximising relationships with tastemakers and providing a unique influencer strategy to reach the next-gen of festival-goers and music-lovers.

We’re excited to grow an exciting relationship with Slam Dunk, creating authentic, relevant and exciting PR.

It’s a celebration of the best of the best, and a testament to the power of music to unite first-time-festival-goers, to the seasoned pro!
