Enter Shikari have today been confirmed as the headliners for Slam Dunk Festival 2017, where they will be celebrating the ten-year anniversary of their landmark debut album Take To The Skies.
The festival will be showing signs of it’s continual growth as it has done in previous years and now in it’s 11th year with bigger venues as the multi locational festival will take place in Birmingham at the NEC on May 27th, Leeds at the First Direct Arena on May 28th, and Hatfield at The Forum on May 29th.
After unveiling their surprise new single Hoodwinker last month, the band said they are starting work on what they say will be a ‘new era’ and their ‘best album yet.’ whilst celebrating their first major breakout album with these special festival dates. The band have DJ’d Slam Dunk twice, and frontman Rou Reynolds said that it will be amazing to finally play it properly.
This is the first time the band are ever playing the festival, and festival director Ben Ray said that he is happy to welcome the band, and that it’s great to have another headliner from the UK, which shows how well British Rock music is doing.
Slam Dunk Festival 2017 is already shaping up to be a big one and certainly one that you do not want to miss, taking place across multiple venues throughout May. Tickets are on sale from 9am on Friday 11th November here.
