A Rocket To The Moon are due to play their first UK shows on the Mayday Parade tour (dates here) so get excited by checking out Nick Santino’s cover of Dressed To Kill on Fueled By Ramen’s tumblr page!
CtrlAltRock favourites Blitz Kids have been added as support to Mayday Parade’s tour in May/June, alongside A Rocket To The Moon and We Are The In Crowd. We are very excited about this one!
As if last week’s announcement for this year’s Slam Dunk Festival wasn’t enough to send you running to buy your tickets one week on we’ve got yet another bunch of bands added to the line-up! Joining the likes of 3oh!3 and pop punk legends The Starting Line are Anti- Flag, We Are The In Crowd, Goldfinger, A Rocket To The Moon and VersaEmerge.
As it’s the 10th anniversary of Slam Dunk, founder Ben Ray had this to say:
“Being the 10
th anniversary of Slam Dunk it was important for me to have a lineup that truly represents the way the scene has evolved over the last 10 years. I am extremley happy to have some of the bands that inspired me to start the club night from which the festival evolved from.
Returning to Leeds University for a 5th year, 2011 will not doubt surely see a another repeat of one of the best Festival atmospheres at any rock festival anywhere in the world. Going back to Hatfield for it’s 2nd year any teething problems of last year’s event have been ironed out with a different layout and the main stage and merch village being outdoors. Increased and improved security will ensure a smooth flow of people between all the stages. The dates have also been swapped around to give the venue time to recover from it’s Summer Ball on the Friday night which caused us problems last year.”
Tickets are on sale now from all the usual outlets – be sure to snap them up asap!
