Slam Dunk Festival 2022: the first headliners announced
Slam Dunk Festival organizers have announced the first two headliners scheduled for Hatfield Park in 2022.
The pop-punk, ska punk, emo, hardcore and alternative rock festival will return to Hatfield next year on Saturday, June 4, 2022.
After the success of the festival rescheduled this month in 2021, the promoters have confirmed the first acts of the 2022 program, including some headliners.
The five post-hardcore Canadian icons Alexisonfire and American punk rock legends Rancid have been announced as the first headliners of the Slam Dunk Festival for 2022.
Both groups will debut at the Slam Dunk Festival.
Slam Dunk posted on his Instagram page: “@aof_official and @rancid will both headline the festival when they debut!”
They will be joined in the Slam Dunk 2022 lineup by Utah rockers The Used, pop-punk kings The Wonder Years, Motion City Soundtrack, Hot Milk and Meet Me At The Altar, and more to be announced.
Originally confirmed to perform at the Slam Dunk Festival 2020 ahead of the coronavirus pandemic, The Wonder Years and Motion City Soundtrack will return to Leeds and Hatfield for a masterclass on longtime pop-punk magic.
The Wonder Years (@thewonderyears) tweeted: “Glad to announce that we will be back in the UK at @SlamDunkMusic next year!”
