Slam Dunk 2017 West Midlands Slam Dunk you beautiful festival, you did it again. A week ago today I was writing a piece about my Slam Dunk picks when the events in Manchester unfolded and so it remains an article left unfinished. With these events in mind the security at Slam Dunk was understandably stepped up; with armed police, a wider cordon and security dotted everywhere. Parents took great reassurance as they left their children to embark upon a day of raucous escape from the world. Once inside the inner sanctum of fencing, the Slam Dunk atmosphere of misfits on the kerbs remained, drunken shenanigans and singing your hearts out with your friends ruled the day.

Slam Dunk Festival Midlands 2016 Slam Dunk arrived and certainly left its mark. The Midlands leg of this festival found itself a new home at the NEC complex, thanks to a refurb at its regular Wolves home.

However, it didn't take long for the crowd to make it their own, sit wherever they could find space and bring a festival scuzz to the shiny Genting arena.

Us lucky Gig Junkies got to go along to this year's Slamdunk Festival 2015 at Wolves Civic. Every year the question of stage location raises it's head.

Slam Dunk Festival Another year of Slam Dunk, another year of flitting between stages and attempting to avert the eyes from the tiny denim shorts and the flesh they are revealing in 80% of their wearers. Tattoos a plenty are on show. The boys are a mix of sleek quiffs, emo hair and long tresses, whilst the girls bring the colour to the hair from vintage rockabilly looks to straight up grunge, with a few corsets and heels for good measure.
