Slam Dunk Festival organiser Ben Ray says:
“I am happier than ever to finally announce the lineup for this year’s Slam Dunk Festival. With such big hit singles, The All American Rejects are a massive headliner for us. I wanted a band who haven’t just toured the UK earlier in the year, or doing other dates around the festival so they are perfect to make the festival unique!

The All American Rejects say:
“Its been a while since we have been in the UK so we are looking forward to coming back and headlining Slam Dunk Festival 2014. We've heard it’s always a big party and as it will be our only festival over there this year, make sure you come and hang with us!"
