Confirmed to play this brand new and exciting extension of the festival are rock champions Four Year Strong and pop punk favourites The Wonder Years. The last time these two bands shared a stage in Ireland was back in 2011 on the Kerrang! Relentless Energy Tour.
There’s something for fans of heavier acts as well, with the mindblowing Bury Tomorrow and Yashin confirmed. And local music is represented by current Kerrang! faves Wounds, Red Enemy and Jody Has A Hitlist.

Slam Dunk Ireland creator Ben Ray says “After running Slam Dunk Scotland for a number of years, and with the addition of Wales last year it felt only right that the next step would be to take it over to Ireland. We choose Dublin as we have already been invited over there a couple of times to run the club night and we have made some great friends over there. I’m happy now to say there is a Slam Dunk event which is fairly near to everyone in the UK and Ireland, allowing everyone to come and see this great line-up!”
