After what felt like a lifetime without festivals or live music, here at EMP we were finally able to make our return this year! One of the awesome live events we had the pleasure of attending was Slam Dunk 2021 and what an experience it was!
Slam Dunk South was once again at Hatfield Park this year and had an incredible lineup from the likes of Don Broco, While She Sleeps, Bury Tomorrow, Skindred and more! You could really feel the joy and relief many attendees had with the return and because of the long wait, it made it feel that much better!
Check out our ‘Festival 21′ highlights on our Instagram stories now to see our best moments from the performances!
While rocking out with all these amazing bands, we had the pleasure to chat with some of the acts from the festival too!
Elena Marastoni from EMP first caught up with Isaac Cooter and Michael Evans from For You The Moon who has recently been signed by Slam Dunk Records and opened up The Key Club stages this year! While talking about some interesting topics like great tv-series and videos games, we also spoke about new music, collaborations and their new single ‘eightfortyfive’!
And we didn’t stop there! Derek Sanders and Alex Garcia from Mayday Parade stopped by for a chat, and we hoped to get a few details on their new album! As well as if they would prefer to live through a Zombie Apocalypse or an Alien Invasion. It was a tough decision!
Lastly, we spoke to Chris #2 from Anti-Flag to get an insight on the messages behind the band’s music, tips for new artists and what he’s been listening to recently. It was such a pleasure to speak to this incredible artist before getting to watch the band’s awesome set!
Thanks again to Slam Dunk for having this year and to all the artists who sat down with us for their interviews! It was a great experience, and we can’t wait to return for 2022!
