The event was previously held in May, although this year’s edition was moved to September 4/5 in line with the reopening of live events in England post-COVID restrictions.
Slam Dunk Festival 2021 saw McFly perform surprise sets at both northern and southern sites.
Following their first show in Leeds, the pop-rock group praised the audience’s “serious energy”. “How many crowd surfers can we get tomorrow?” they added. McFly said the next day that the crowd in Hatfield “didn’t disappoint”.
