I just bought my ticket for the Sheffield date :D now I just need to find a way to get to a Real Friends and La Dispute gig!
Slam Dunk Festival has been the best part of my year for the last three years, so naturally I’m over excited about the 2014 line up.
I’ve been compiling a list of bands who I suspect will be playing the upcoming Slam Dunk Festival and I thought I’d share it and see if anyone had picked up any other bands that could be added to the list.
In order of likeliness:
Real Friends very very likely
- I spoke to one of the guys after their gig in Newcastle and he basically slipped up and said that they’d be back in the UK in May to play Slam Dunk along with a new full length.
La Dispute very likely
- they are on a UK tour in May that finishes a few days before Slam Dunk.
The Wonder Years, State Champs & A Loss For Words likely
- again, they are all on a UK tour together in May that finishes a week before Slam Dunk.
Panic! At the Disco long shot
- on a UK tour in May that finishes a couple of weeks before Slam Dunk.
Brand New even longer shot
- on a UK tour a month before Slam Dunk. Yet to add more dates though.
What a line up! I’ll definitely be at the Sheffield or London date depending on where I end up living :D
I’ve just made a new Pop Punk blog called ‘Pop Punk of the Day’.
I will be featuring a new band every day and posting videos, info and links etc. The idea behind the blog is to help people discover new music in the incredible genre that is Pop Punk. Todays first featured band is The Dangerous Summer.
If it gets enough interest, I intend to use Mondays to promote usigned bands. The idea is that people will message me info, links etc. about their unsigned band and I’d feature a few new bands every Monday. If you want your band, or your mates band (get permission first) featured then don’t hesitate to message me.
If you’re interested in discovering new music please follow the blog and spread the word!!
Please note that when I say Pop Punk, I mean bands like The Wonder Years, Man Overboard etc. not All Time Low :p
Gonna spend the afternoon listening to my newly purchased The Story So Far and Transit albums and adding the ones I love to my ever-growing Defend Pop Punk playlist that’s been on repeat the last week.
So far it’s only got 42 songs in it by Man Overboard, A Loss For Words and The Wonder Years.
Anyone got any recommendations of other bands that would work in that playlist? I’ve been discovering so many new bands recently but I still want to hear more!!
