With Slam Dunk Festival 2020 now being rescheduled from May to September due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, it’s inevitable that some originally confirmed acts may no longer be able to perform.
Unfortunately, both Dance Gavin Dance and Issues have been forced to leave the festival line-up due to the scheduling conflict that this has now caused, as both bands will now be touring across North America when the festival takes place.
Slam Dunk Festival shared the news via Twitter, though word on replacements (if any) is yet to come.
Sadly we bring to you news of the first artists we have found out can’t make the new dates, Dance Gavin Dance and Issues already had rescheduled their US tour to this period. More artist info to follow shortly. https://t.co/axVUcjvn36
