Unfortunately a further five acts have pulled out of this year’s Slam Dunk Festival due to the restrictions of the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The latest names to regrettably step down from the 2021 line-up are Counterparts, Basement, Reel Big Fish, Knuckle Puck, and Face To Face.
They follow Movements and The Story So Far, who last month confirmed that they had dropped out from the festival due to other commitments.
The news was confirmed on social media by the festival organisers, though they also shared that they’ll be confirming some new acts that’ll be joining the bill tomorrow.
An artist update for you.
We’re announcing new names at 12pm tomorrow!!! 🎉 pic.twitter.com/Qv2Cj39T48
