LIVE REVIEW: SLAM DUNK 2011

The annual Slam Dunk Festival for many has become a must-see and year after year the anticipation grows. 2011 is no different with over 50 acts spread across seven stages, fans are spoiled for choice with a mix of emerging UK and US bands and established bands making their mark all over the festival. For many its impossible to see everyone they want to, but here at Alter The Press! we did our best to cover the festival as best as possible, with writers at both sites; Leeds and Hatfield. In addition we also covered Slam Dunk Birmingham and Slam Dunk By The Sea.

Much like last year’s event, Slam Dunk once again showed why its one of the best UK alternative festivals with its wide variety and clear understanding of what is happening in the current music scene, with vast line-up covering hardcore, pop-punk, rock, ska punk, hip-hop and even dubstep.
