NEWS: Slam Dunk Festival Acts Come To Newcastle


Slam Dunk is one of the UK’s biggest and most loved pop-punk and alternative music festivals. The rock fest once again turned Yorkshire into a two-day-long mosh pit this May. If you didn’t make it there this year or you’re just craving more sweet breakdowns then we’ve got some great news. Six of the best from this year’s Slam Dunk line-up are heading to Newcastle very soon! Headline sets are always better than festival performances anyway right?

Less Than Jake @ O2 Academy, Newcastle (24/09/19)

Less Than Jake are on their way to the O2 Academy this September headlining the fourth year of Fireball’s ‘Fuelling The Fire’ tour! They’ll be bringing Goldfinger, Save Ferris, Thieves Of Liberty, Belle Elmore and DJ Matt Stocks with them for an all out punk party! This is a mini-festival in itself, you’d be crazy to miss it!


Touché Amoré @ Riverside, Newcastle (30/09/19)

LA’s post-hardcore kings Touché Amoré are set to tear up Riverside this September alongside fellow Californian metal heads Deafheaven. This one is going to be a rip-roaring double header not for the faint hearted! Get yourself pit-ready and prepare for an awesome night!


Press To Meco @ Think Tank?, Newcastle (23/10/19)

Experimental Croydon alt-rockers Press To Meco are Newcastle bound this October! The three-piece has made a massive impact since the release of their AIM Album Of The Year nominated debut ‘Good Intent’. The boys have a unique sound that fuses rough, melodic riffs with almost pop friendly crooning vocals. We can’t wait to catch them at Think Tank?!


Boston Manor @ Think Tank?, Newcastle (12/11/19)

When Boston Manor formed in Blackpool back in 2013 they quickly stormed the UK’s underground punk scene. The band built a reputation for intense live shows and a never say die attitude, earning them some big label attention. After signing with renowned US indie label Pure Noise Records in 2015, BM began touring around the world, becoming one of the UK’s hottest punk rock exports. Come see the underground giants at Think Tank? this November! 


Wage War @ Think Tank?, Newcastle (13/01/20)

Florida’s Wage War burst onto the scene in 2015 with their debut album ‘Blueprints’, racking up over 12 million streams on Spotify! Since then the band has had an unwavering dedication to progression, sharpening their patent hybrid of heavy pit-starting technicality and hummable hypnotic melodies with their ‘Pressure (The Singles)’ EP. Get war ready with tickets to WW’s Newcastle show now! 


The Menzingers @ Riverside, Newcastle (12/02/20)

American punk rockers The Menzingers have been plying their trade since 2006, spreading their unique story-driven punk to all four corners of the earth. With five albums under their belt, and a sixth on the way, the boys are hitting the road and heading to Tyneside for a rare Newcastle show early next year!
