This is the first time the Arena has been used for such an event and both are chatting to the Guinness book of World records with a view to creating the world’s biggest rock club night ever.
Ben Ray, Event Director and Founder:
“With the festival moving to a new location there has been much speculation over the location of the infamous afterparty. We are proud now to announce something we have been putting together for some time. The afterparty will take place in the massive Leeds First Direct Arena. With over 4000 people set to be rocking out to some of the biggest rock anthems, the event is set to possibly be the biggest rock club night the UK has ever seen! We are even in contact with the Guinness World Records to see if we can set an official record!?”
Tony Watson, head of marketing for First Direct Arena:
“Slam Dunk is a great and vibrant event for the City of Leeds and we are looking forward to hosting the official aftershow party. We plan to finish the festival in style and give it a noteworthy end.”
