The team behind Slam Dunk Festival have been celebrating this week after they won the award for "Best Festival" at The Relentless Kerrang! Awards ceremony, beating off competition from the likes of Leeds Festival, Download and Blood Stock Festival.

Slam Dunk, which takes place every May at Leeds University, has been dubbed as one of the 'craziest' festivals by music fans and is now firmly placed as a major music event for the alternative rock scene.

Next year Slam Dunk Festival will celebrate its 10th birthday.

Festival manager, Ben Ray said, "It's been nearly 10 years of hard work but to get this recognition makes it worth it! Can't believe we won against larger events such as Leeds Festival, so that makes it even better!".

Congratulations to Ben and all the team in Leeds from everyone at Leeds Music Scene.
