Slam Dunk Festival pushed back to September

Given the concerns around the current coronavirus pandemic, Slam Dunk Festival has taken the decision to push back their 2021 event to September following the recent update given by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

While social distancing measures are still in place, Johnson has revealed plans for the UK to return to a state of new normality by June 21st after stepping up the rate of vaccinations against COVID-19.

Despite many major events such as Glastonbury deciding to postpone for another 12 months, Slam Dunk has decided instead to change the date of their 2021 event from May until later in the summer in September.

“Hopefully moving back to September will allow enough leeway should there be any delays to the current roadmap,” a statement from the Slam Dunk reads. ​“We are also very happy to say the vast majority of the line-up will be staying with us for September, and a line-up announcement will be coming shortly.

​“As we now have the clear guidance we needed, will be soon be announcing that Slam Dunk Festival 21 will be moving back from May to September. Thanks all for your continued support.”
