Festival season is almost upon us, with music fans set to get their dose of pop-rock, ska-punk and metal this month as Slam Dunk makes its return to Leeds.

Among the headliners for 2019 are All Time Low, Bullet For My Valentine, NOFX, Glassjaw and Plain White T's, providing a strong line-up of punk, rock and metal.
