On Saturday 28th of May, I went to Slam Dunk Festival (Birmingham) and it was amazing!

I wanted to write this post a while ago but then I got distracted by the stresses of the General Election.

I have been to this festival before and once again it was incredible! And I am so glad I got to experience it again with my boyfriend.

We spent a lot of time in line for signings but we still saw some really great bands and had a wicked time... AND I GOT TO MEET NECK DEEP!

It was probably the best moment of my life. Neck Deep are my favourite band, I have seen them live many times and it was incredible to meet them. They were all really nice, they all signed my vinyl and I even got a hug from Ben Barlow! We also had a good ol' chat about the "absolute bangers" (Dani Washington's words but can't say I disagree) on their album Life's Not Out To Get You. 

I also went to see Neck Deep headline and they played their new songs for the first time and they even played some songs from their old albums!

My boyfriend decided to go and see Enter Shikari  headline but sent me a video of the vocalist ranting about how we needed to kick Theresa May out and the whole crowd were cheering... something I am definitely on board with.

We also got signings from and met I Prevail and Don Broco got my mugshot in their picture (can't say I was too pleased about that one). I was gutted I didn't get to meet Don Broco properly though.

We saw some great bands such as Crossfaith, Don Broco and Frank Iero & the Patience. My boyfriend even got called out by the vocalist from The Maine! (He was the dude with the burgundy beanie for anyone who was there).

And of course to top the day off, we had to get completely lost when trying to find the car. But otherwise it was a fantastic day and evening. Slam Dunk is a great festival with great bands and I would definitely recommend it.

Thank you for reading!

Until the next time,
