Slam Dunk 2020 expands to France


British festival Slam Dunk will hit the new ground and expand from the UK to France. This year, the rock festival will take place on 30 May in Paris for the very first time.

Amazing news for all lovers of Slam Dunk! The organizers have decided to bring the festival to the European mainland, more specifically to Paris, France. So far, the one-day festival has been held on two consecutive days in Leeds and Hatfield in England. As the new festival will take place indoors, it is likely to be a smaller edition to test the water for possible spin-offs.

The lineup for the French version will not be exactly the same as for the English, but it is for certain that some of the artists will feature at both editions. The first five confirmed acts are The Used, Landmvrks, Grayscale, Four Year Strong and Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! of which the first three are also confirmed in the UK. Tickets will go on sale on 24 January.

Among the artists who will take the stage at the original Slam Dunk are Sum41, Billy Talent, State Champs, The Story So Far and Mayday Parade.
