GALLERY: Slam Dunk Festival 2015

Thousands of rock fans took to the streets and venues of Wolverhampton for the city's biggest ever Slam Dunk Festival.

Now in its 10th year, Slam Dunk saw more than 50 bands perform on seven stages around the city centre.

You Me At Six, The Bronx, Gallows, Reel Big Fish and Lower Than Atlantis were among the names to play to the Bank Holiday crowd.

Fans lined the streets from around midday for the all day festival, which saw the area around the Civic Centre transformed into a full-on festival site.

As well as the Civic halls, outdoor stages were set up in Mitre Fold and Corporation Street, with North Street closed to traffic.

Skinny jeans and eyeliner was the order of the day for the mainly a youthful crowd, although the presence of scene veterans such as Bane, H2O and Millencolin brought plenty of older fans into the city.

The festival was started in 2005 by Brummie Ben Ray, who has overseen its transformation from a small club night in Leeds to a major three day event.
