British Rockers From Bands Including You Me At Six And Don Broco Have Joined A Charity Skydiving Event In Memory Of A U.k. Teenager Who Raised $5.1 Million (£3.2 Million) For Good Causes Before He Lost His Battle With Cancer Last Year (14).
You Me At Six drummer Dan Flint is to parachute out of a plane for the Skydive For Stephen event in Lincolnshire, England on Friday (10Jul15) to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust in honour of Stephen Sutton.
He will be joined by Don Broco stars Matt Donnelly and Rob Damiani, who will be among 350 fundraisers taking part in the mass skydive which organisers hope will break a world record.
Flint says of the jump, "As nervous as I am, it's going to be amazing and for such a good cause too!"
It was all smiles at this year's Slam Dunk festival and, despite the rain, the Desperados and beer was flowing and the crowds were bouncing non-stop to 2015's incredible line-up.
As more and more bands were announced over the last few months, the anticipation was high and almost every band pulled it off with finesse, proving just why Slam Dunk is one of the country's best rock festivals.
Opening on the main stage was Set It Off. Despite all the drama that's surrounded the band over the past week with bassist Austin Kerr, the band didn't let it show when they jumped on stage and gave the performance of their life. Opening their set with 'Forever Stuck In Our Youth' and performing their other hits 'Why Worry', 'Ancient History' and more, they certainly kicked things off with a bang.

British Rockers You Me At Six Halted Their Set At A U.k. Music Festival On Sunday (24may15) So Paramedics Could Tend To An Injured Fan In The Crowd.
The Underdog hitmakers were headlining the Slam Dunk South rock music event in Hertfordshire, England when they were alerted to a medical emergency in the audience, and the rockers stopped their set for 30 minutes so the female fan could be rescued from the throng.
Frontman Josh Franceschi has since thanked fans for their co-operation on Instagram.com, writing, "To everyone who was at Slam Dunk South yesterday... A) Thank you for coming out to watch us we had a great time. B) Thank you for your patience as that young lady was being seen to by paramedics. C) We have never had to leave the stage for 30 minutes, but the safety of people who come to watch our band, as well as your enjoyment level, is paramount to us.
"Was it somewhat frustrating? Yes. But our egos are far less significant and the show continued as planned after that. D) Thank you to the fans in that area of the crowd for alerting me to the situation, to the security and paramedics for acting swiftly, and to Slam Dunk for letting us run over so we could complete our set. E) Glad to say the young lady has completely recovered."

This super band mash-up tour was one of the highlights of 2015 so far. After being announced in August following their performances at Reading Festival last year, the two bands, along with support act Walk The Moon, almost tore the O2 Arena apart on Valentine's Day.
Opening the tour was Baltimore band Walk The Moon. Walking out on stage to 'Circle Of Life' from Disney's 'The Lion King', the crowd began clapping instantly. The multi-talented lead singer spent the set not only singing, but also playing synth and percussion alongside the band's drummer. During the song 'Jenny', Walk The Moon had the whole crowd jumping and repeating the line, 'I'm not gonna take it from you, I'll let you give it to me'. The band seemed to have quite a big following, with a lot of the crowd singing the words and even those who didn't know who they were still enjoyed the performance and were up dancing and jumping. Their newer song 'Shut Up And Dance' was the most popular by far and, as expected, the whole crowd shut up and danced. After covering the Killers' 'All These Things That I Have Done', Walk The Moon closed with 'Anna Sun' - one of their most popular hits.
A motion picture introduced All Time Low and soon after they stormed on stage and started the set with 'Love Like War'. The whole stadium was on their feet, and when the band started 'Lost in Stereo', the crowd went crazy. Just four songs into the set, a woman had taken her top off, lead guitarist Jack Barakat had at least three bras dangling off of his mic stand and exclaimed that he had had 'sexual interactions with at least 30% of the crowd'. However, it seemed as though they were not aware of how young some of the children in the crowd were as their excessive sexual references, innuendos and statements started to cloud their performance. Nevertheless, the band had the whole crowd singing along. 'Weightless' was the highlight song of the night for them along with 'Therapy' which had the stadium lit up with people's phones. The band quickly noticed if the crowd started to get too rowdy and acted instantly when there was a casualty, ensuring the stewards helped get the young girl who was injured to safety. Having signed their first record deal in 2004 on Valentine's Day, the band welcomed a group of their fans in the crowd on stage with them during 'Timebomb' to show us all just how grateful they were for everyone's support over the years. 'Barakat' had the most energy of the whole set and although they all seemed to burn out a little towards the end, in their final song, well known hit 'Dear Maria (Count Me In)', they came storming back to life with full energy.

Ah, You Me At Six, we meet again. Not since their cute little debut album 'Take Off Your Colours' had I happened across the Surrey quintet and, trawling through their attempts in between their 2009 debut and their latest, early 2014 release 'Cavalier Youth' ensures that not much has been missed.
Essentially, 'Cavalier Youth' picks up where this pop rock group left off with 2011 release 'Sinners Never Sleep', packing the album with a selection of catchy tunes which is sure to drag you from your seats whilst screaming uncontrollably at the sheer awesomeness that has spiralled into your earlobes... If you are a female aged sixteen or below with absolutely no taste in music whatsoever, that is.
But, hey, they have a target audience and they have certainly captured their chosen demographic, and it's not entirely difficult to see why. Album opener 'Too Young to Feel This Old' combines poppy sounding vocals and the typically inventive lyrics of "Whoaaah, oooooh, aaaaaaah" just before the proclamations of "We're too young to feel this old" with their not-so-heavy guitar riffs, whilst tackling the issue of relationships between boys and girls. What's not to love, right?

The heavy metal band - made up of Steve Harris, Dave Murray, Adrian Smith, Bruce Dickinson, Nicko McBrain and Janick Gers- picked up the gong for their pioneering role in British Heavy Metal, from the late 70s to the present day.
The group couldn't be at the magazine's annual awards - which is celebrating its twentieth year - but gave a speech via video link. They said: ''we can't be there [London] because we're here [Germany] doing a show and I just wanna say thanks very much for this, and what can I say, 20 years, amazing.''
