Following the rescheduling of this year’s Slam Dunk Festival, some originally confirmed bands will no longer be able to perform, and both Bury Tomorrow and Your Demise have had to pull out.
The two bands are already committed to performing at the Impericon Festival dates in Europe during Slam Dunk Festival‘s newly announced dates in September, so are no longer able to perform as a result.
Unfortunately this means we won’t be taking part in the rescheduled Slam Dunk dates 🙁 With both events falling on the same dates we couldn’t do both and as we were committed to Impericon first it felt only fair we honour that. Don't worry UK fans, announcements soon.. #SDF20

Sadly, this does mean that we are unable to play the rescheduled Slam Dunk 2020 dates ? ⠀
With events falling on the same dates, we can’t do both and we were already fully committed to our European friends at Impericon.⠀
Maybe some more announcements to come though, eh.

This announcement follows shortly after the confirmation that Dance Gavin Dance and Issues were also forced to pull out of the line-up due to a scheduling conflict with a tour across North America at the same time.
At the time of writing, there’s no word on replacement acts for any of the artists who’ve pulled out thus far.
This year’s Slam Dunk Festival will take place on September 5th 2020 at Temple Newsam, Leeds and on September 6th 2020 at Hatfield Park, Hatfield.
Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased online from the festival’s official website (here).
