The travelling festival returns to two UK sites next year – hitting Leeds’ Temple Newsam Estate for Slam Dunk North on May 25, before following a day later with Slam Dunk South on May 26. It was confirmed yesterday that Slam Dunk would not be returning to Birmingham in 2019 – much to fans’ upset.
It’s now been announced that All Time Low will take top billing at next year’s event, backed by a supporting lineup that includes seminal punk legends NOFX.
The event will also see the anticipated return of UK punk legends Gallows – who will return with singer Wade McNeil.
Tickets are set to go on sale from Friday October 19 and you can buy them here. Check out the lineup in full below.

There’s been a bit of an ATL drought in the UK recently so we thought it best to come back and tear shit up with some rad bands. Bring your life jackets.”
All Time Low’s Alex Gaskarth said: “There’s been a bit of an ATL drought in the UK recently so we thought it best to come back and tear shit up with some rad bands. Bring your life jackets.”
Taking to Twitter, Gallows uploaded a snippet of fuzzy visuals, complete with an unnerving instrumental. The black, white and red clip also depicts the Christian symbol, the Cross of Lorraine. The image was used during their previous two records. A track titled ‘Cross of Lorraine’ was also featured on the band’s 2012 LP.
