Punk heads, stand up and listen. Actually you can sit down as long as you read on. The SLAM DUNK festival will come to Ireland for the first time ever smothering Dublin in punk love for one night.
The Academy, Dublin will have all three rooms jam packed with top acts on Wednesday 29th May 2013.

So who is playing, Four Year Strong and The Wonder Years are heading over aswell as Bury Tomorrow, Yashin, Wounds, Red Enemy, Jody Has A Hitlist, Fireworks and Man Overboard.
Slam Dunk 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!’
