Slam Dunk Festival is an award-winning outdoor festival. This high-profile public event is considered one of the premier rock festivals in the UK and is the lead event of its type to be held in two different locations across the UK over the same weekend.
As a result of the growing success of the event, both north and south locations have made the move to fully outdoor event sites. This has allowed the event to grow, bringing with it bigger bands whilst catering for larger audiences.
The festival originated in Leeds and has remained here since its inception in 2006. Throughout the years, there have been some exciting changes and the decision was made to make the north site a fully outdoor event site in 2019. The event was held successfully at Temple Newsam after a similar successful move for the south site in 2018.
The south site moved from its original home at the University of Hertfordshire to Hatfield House for its first year in its green field home. This was an exciting and successful move, allowing customers ease of access to the train station whilst enjoying the festival feel of an outdoor space.
Both sites consisted of 2 main stages, big tops and trailer stages, holding an overall capacity of 28,000 per site.
