Slam Dunk has announced its rearranged dates for it’s 2021 edition.

The northern edition of the festival, which takes place at Temple Newsam in Leeds, will now take place on 4th September, while Hatfield Park’s southern leg will be held a day later on 5th September. All original tickets remain valid.

Slam Dunk was previously planned for May, but has shifted for 2021 in light of the recent new coronavirus regulations, which suggest by the time September comes round there’s a much better chance of festivals taking place without social distancing regulations.

“Hopefully moving back to September will allow enough leeway should there be any delays to the current roadmap,” a statement 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.”
