Slam Dunk reveals new plans for parking and drop off operations for 2024 festival

Update from Slam Dunk.

The festival has announced there will be a few logistical changes for 2024.

Slam Dunk is known nationally as the UK’s biggest independent rock festival for good reason – and Leeds is lucky enough to host the northern site year-on-year.

Located on the Temple Newsam Estate in East Leeds, the festival attracts thousands from across the country and with it, comes a mass of cars, buses and festival-goers travelling by train, taxi and locals on foot.

New for this year, Slam Dunk has announced there will be different ‘directions to approach the site depending on where you are parking or being dropped off’ and there will be two car park entrances, plus more signage and ‘improved pick up and drop off operations’.

Slam Dunk has said that new changes for 2024 ‘ensure improved traffic management, designed to allow everyone a much quicker arrival and departure from the festival’.

The festival reminds people that car parking tickets are only available in advance – and depending on how you choose to travel to the festival and whether or not you’re parking or dropping off, you’ll receive information via email in advance explaining how to get to your destination.

The instructions for those with car park tickets will not be made public for a more streamlined approach, and this will hopefully minimise traffic as well. 

Slam Dunks says “Please do not try to approach the car park entrances without a pre-purchased car park pass being displayed in your windscreen.”

“For all pick up and drop offs please head to the designated entrance and do not try to access through the car park entrances. These areas will be clearly signed on your approach to site. 

“Please stay tuned for more information on news and details on improvements to the festival sites coming soon. With just a few months to go, we’re looking forward to seeing you all back at Slam Dunk Festival 2024!”
