5 Reasons Why Slam Dunk Is the Highlight of my Year

Foxxtailz Slam Dunk North


Ahh Slam Dunk, my favorite ever music festival, for me it literally knocks every other music festival out of the park and with good reason. I'm a self-proclaimed pop-punk enthusiast [got the pizza tattoo and errythang not joking] and Slam Dunk is all things pop-punk. I'm currently in post SD mourning as I have to wait another year until I can do it all again. With Slam Dunk, I'm always guaranteed a good time, surrounded by my best friends, and the best music. This year was particularly nostalgic for me with the Enter Shikari Take to the Skies 10-year anniversary set and 10 years plus since Cute is What we Aim for released The same old blood rush with a new touch, my 16-year-old self was in her element. There are tons of reasons why Slam Dunk will always be bae and the highlight of my year but, lucky for you guys, I've whittled it down to just 5 ;)

1) THE WEATHER GODS ARE ALWAYS ON OUR SIDE

Honestly, I'm quite surprised that bank holiday weather doesn't run true to form and lets the heavens open, this year was the third time the festival was held outside and again the weather was nothing short of beaut for the entire day.

2) Sharing a Strongbow with Cute is what we aim for

lol, I listened to TSOBRWANT religiously in college, to see the guys again 10 years on AND meet them was defo one of the main highlights of the day. The lads dissed my drink of choice whilst the played their set, so when I met them, I shared a pint of dark fruits to sway their mind, top lads.

3) The Venue

The last 3 years the festival has been set outdoors whereas all the previous years have been inside. Salm Dunk literally shuts off sections of Leeds to hold the event, how boss is that?! With the main set up being in Meliunum Square, amazing.

4) The Headliners

I mean come on, Enter Shikari for the 10 year take to the skies anniversary set? well, fricking done. As soon as I saw that headliner announced I bought my ticket straight away. Each year the guys at SD bring the best headliners from Panic! at the disco [also bae] You me at Six, Taking Back Sunday and New Found Glory [biggest baes]

5) Spending the day with my best friends

Every year a big group of my friends heads off to Slam Dunk, every year we have the best time, hanging out surrounded by the greatest atmosphere. It's a chance to meet up with pals you haven't seen in a while and share a drink whilst watching your fave acts. I've created some of the best and most cherished memories over the years I've been lucky enough to go to Salm Dunk.

Big shout out to the guys at The Zeitgeist Agency for sending me to the coolest festival of the year <333

  3. Loving the pics - is that Lucy there too? I’m ashamed to say that I have never been to SD, despite living in bloody Leeds ha. Also, Cute is What We Aim For… Now that brings back some old school memories
