My Dream Festival: Chapel

After a long cold winter, it’s time to start thinking about festival season! And as always, this year kicks off with Slam Dunk Festival. The event takes place on Bank Holiday weekend at the end of May, and will once again be held one day after the other in Leeds, Hatfield, and Birmingham. At the helm this year sees Good Charlotte and Jimmy Eat World battling it out for the headline slot with Taking Back Sunday, Say Anything and As It Is being just some of the big highlights.

As we miss the summer delight of festivals so much, we’ve grabbed a whole bunch of bands playing Slam Dunk this year to talk us through what would make up their dream festival, from location to bands and food. Georgian pop rock duo Chapel are the exciting new kids on the block and the duo are making waves with a crowd that would have loved bands like Hellogoodbye a decade ago. The band quickly talked to us about what their ideal festival setting would consist of before they hit the road in Europe with Sleeping With Sirens.
