LIVE REVIEW: Slam Dunk Festival 2017


On Sunday May 28th photographer Beth travelled to Leeds to catch the return of Slam Dunk Festival.

Opening the festival on the Monster Stage was Canadian rockers Like Pacific. Despite the early set time the band had gathered a large crowd to watch their set.

After the opening bands I headed over to the Jagermeister stage to catch Crossfaith play their set. Having heard great things about the bands live performances I was not disappointed. From circle pits, to walls of death which ended with the bands lead Kenta Koie being carried into the middle of the pit this band certainly know how to put on a show. Fans were also treated to a guest collaboration with Caleb Shomo from Beartooth.

Staying at the Jaegermeister stage the next band up were We Are The Ocean. Having recently announced the bands split it was definitely a bittersweet experience for fans watching their main stage set at their penultimate show. Surrounded by sobbing fans the band played a string of their hits and some old fan favourites.

The last set I caught of the night was We The Kings. Growing up listening to the bands music is was great to finally see them live and boy do they not disappoint. Performing old fan favourites including ‘Secret Valentine’ and ‘Skyway Avenue’ the band closed out with Check Yes Juliet (for the second time that set much to the fans delight).

Slam Dunk is certainly a festival not to be missed.
