A POP punk band has won a dream chance to perform at Slam Dunk Festival.

Local band You Know The Drill applied to Rock Sound competition to play at the festival and got into the top five before the popular vote meant that they will be performing at one of their favourite festivals.

The group, which started around two years ago has two members from Worcester, with the other three hailing from Stourport.

Luke Astley, from Warndon, who plays guitar for the group said: "To even be nominated was a dream come true, this festival is really big for us and some of our favourite bands play in it we have been attending for many years.

"To win the competition is incredible, it still hasn't sunk in for us and I don't think it will until we perform on the day.

"It is a big opportunity for us to get some more fans, hopefully expanding outside of the West Midlands area and be asked to do some bigger gigs."

The festival takes place on Saturday May 27 at Birmingham's Genting Arena.
