    Hey, i went to slam dunk fest on saturday (27th may)....and it was amazing :o!!

    The bands that played were

    hellogoodbye (listen to call n return) (these were first up and amazing)
    The hush sound
    capdown , they were "ok"
    hundred reasons
    thursday ,these were good

    two the headliners were
    the academy is (these were bloody awsome, check out "slow down")
    fallout boy, again these were good

    It was a really great day with the music lasting about 8 and a half hours. The only downside was i got crushed by a fat lady :( ,and a slush puppy cost me £1.50 and it wasnt even slushy :p

    did anyone else go?

    I was meant to be going but Barnsley got to the Play-Off Final which was on the same day so I sold my ticket :(

    My mates who went said The Academy Is... were awesome, but FOB weren't as good as the time we saw them before.

    *blows Si a kiss* :p

    Yeah, I was there. Largely it was absolute gash.

    HGB were barely comic relief
    The Hush Sound were so boring
    Capdown have slowed everything down and become pointless
    Hundred Reasons don't sound like Hundred Reasons
    Thursday don't work on such a big stage, especially with such wind
    The Academy Is just aren't very good
    Fall Out Boy are cack live

    I've probably forgotten one, but it was instantly forgettable. £3 a can was a complete rip, too. Still, we had amazing fun at the afterparty :D
