Slam Dunk Festival 2016

If you follow my various social media platforms, you'll know that I attended Slam Dunk Festival at the end of last month - I've been twice before and the atmosphere is awesome, plus the line-up is always insane!

The festival is on at 3 locations over 3 days; this year I was lucky enough to attend both the Midlands and South date, which was honestly so cool, and perfect for band clashes, as I was definitely torn between Of Mice & Men and Panic at the Disco!  You can actually buy a Mega Ticket for all 3 sites at a discounted price so keep that in mind for next year!


Unfortunately my camera decided to corrupt most of my image files so I lost the awesome photos I took of the stages (cry), so you'll have to make do with this one photo I took on my phone of Blood Youth; they were so rad live and had a great turnout - definitely give them a listen if you're into high-energy hardcore with clean vocals - they're on the up!

Thankfully all the video files survived, so there's some awesome footage of the bands live in my vlog from the weekend below!


Due to the aforementioned camera trouble, I only have an outfit pic from the Midlands site (as it was taken on my phone).  Not usually into blouses but I couldn't resist this snake print one - then the next day I wore a leopard print body - apparently v into my animal prints at the moment!


It was rad to chill with blogger babes Kayla and Zoe, as well as meet a ton of you guys; it's always so much fun having a lil' chat with you so never be shy to come and say hello!!

Favourite acts definitely included Northlane, Hacktivist, Memphis May Fire, OM&M, P!ATD, and of course Shikari Sound System.  This year's line-up has been the best in my opinion and I can't wait for the next one - bring on May 2017!!

Did any of you guys go to Slam Dunk this year?


  1. It would be interesting to see how the south and midlands compared - which did you prefer? I've been going to Slam Dunk south for years but went to the midlands this year for a change. PATD were epicccc, as were Shikari Sound System. I feel like the line up gets better every year!

  2. I went to North and it was so weird to be back in the same spot 10 years after seeing FOB at the first Slam Dunk. P!ATD where amazing and I've been waiting to see them for way too long. =^-^=

  7. I know I'm super late (I haven't been up to date with your blog *cries*) but ugh I'm stilll super sad that I didn't have the guts to go up to you while I was at Slam Dunk! Definitely considering of going there next year again if I have the time and money. The people there were absolutely lovely!
