Fans in the Midlands aren’t happy about the news, with one calling the cancellation “devastating”.

Slam Dunk cancelling Midlands is devastating. I think it would be more justified if they had camping or hotel partnerships like Download or if it was longer than a day, there’s not much incentive to go for just the day trip unless the lineup is completely solid. ????
