The Slam Dunk Festival, which has legs in Leeds, Hatfield and Wolverhampton, is up for three gongs in the music industry bash, with awards voted for by the public.

Slam Dunk, which was headlined this year by All Time Low, has been nominated for ‘Best Small Festival’ for events with less than 10,000 capacity.

The touring festival has also been listed among those contesting the ‘Best Metropolitan Festival’ section, a category for events using the existing infrastructure of a town’s venues.

Slam Dunk South took place over seven stages at The Forum Hertfordshire, on the University of Hertfordshire’s College Lane campus.

The pop-punk, ska, metal, rock and punk festival is also up for the ‘Best Toilets’ trophy.
