Co-headline slot

Good Charlotte will join emo-rockers Jimmy Eat World as co-headliners. Both will make their first ever appearance at the festival.

Also on the bill are the likes of Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Pvris, Knuckle Puck, Real Friends, Crown The Empire and Every Time I Die.

Rock band Thursday will make a UK-exclusive appearance and are set to draw crowds in. Hotels, guesthouses and serviced apartments in Birmingham are likely to be booked up well in advance.

Good Charlotte are among the most popular punk bands in Britain, formed after brothers Benji and Joel Madden went to see a Beastie Boys concert. Past singles include Girls and Boys, The Anthem and Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.

Also helping to fill hotels and serviced apartments in Birmingham will be Pvris, a band that has seen its fan base grow massively since forming in 2012. The band’s most recent album, All We Know Of Heaven, All We Need Of Hell, featured such hit songs as Heaven, Anyone Else and What’s Wrong.

Big name acts

Frank Carter, meanwhile, has seen a huge rise in popularity over the last couple of years. The former Pure Love and Gallows frontman and his band have been behind two hugely-acclaimed albums and have captivated festival audiences around the country.

Creeper reached heady heights after releasing Eternity, In Your Arms, their much-heralded debut album. This features the hit singles Black Rain, Misery, Hiding with Boys and Suzanne. The band announced that there was ‘great excitement’ about their return to the 2018 Slam Dunk festival. The band called the festival an important annual event and said it was an incredible privilege to have secured a spot on the main stage.

The festival will see the reunion of Thursday after a seven-year-break. The Geoff Rickly-led band is best-known for records such as War All The Time and Full Collapse and famously played at the first Slam Dunk Festival during 2007. Rickly said that the band would be meeting up with some of their oldest friends at this year’s festival and promised a ‘bunch of surprises’.
