Slam Dunk 2021

After what felt like a lifetime without festivals or live music, here at EMP we were finally able to make our return this year! One of the awesome live events we had the pleasure of attending was Slam Dunk 2021 and what an experience it was!

Slam Dunk South was once again at Hatfield Park this year and had an incredible lineup from the likes of Don Broco, While She Sleeps, Bury Tomorrow, Skindred and more! You could really feel the joy and relief many attendees had with the return and because of the long wait, it made it feel that much better!

Check out ourFestival 21′ highlights on our Instagram stories now to see our best moments from the performances!

While rocking out with all these amazing bands, we had the pleasure to chat with some of the acts from the festival too!

Elena Marastoni from EMP first caught up with Isaac Cooter and Michael Evans from For You The Moon who has recently been signed by Slam Dunk Records and opened up The Key Club stages this year! While talking about some interesting topics like great tv-series and videos games, we also spoke about new music, collaborations and their new single ‘eightfortyfive’!

And we didn’t stop there! Derek Sanders and Alex Garcia from Mayday Parade stopped by for a chat, and we hoped to get a few details on their new album! As well as if they would prefer to live through a Zombie Apocalypse or an Alien Invasion. It was a tough decision!

Lastly, we spoke to Chris #2 from Anti-Flag to get an insight on the messages behind the band’s music, tips for new artists and what he’s been listening to recently. It was such a pleasure to speak to this incredible artist before getting to watch the band’s awesome set!

Thanks again to Slam Dunk for having this year and to all the artists who sat down with us for their interviews! It was a great experience, and we can’t wait to return for 2022!

Gifts For Brother

gifts for brother

Funny, tall, grumpy, cool, shy, geeky or gym bunny: Big and little brothers come in every shape and size and despite how annoying they are, we love them to bits. You’ve been best friends and sworn enemies: he makes you laugh so hard that cornflakes come out of your nose, hugs you harder than anyone else and also makes you madder than you ever thought you could be. When he’s not snitching on you he’s your partner in crime and nobody can understand the things that the two of you have been through together.

 

Whether for Christmas or a birthday, after everything you’ve been through, your brother deserves to know that despite an uncontrollable urge to tease him, deep down you think he’s ace. To celebrate awesome big and little brothers everywhere we have put together a hand-picked selection of cool and funny EMP gifts, that are perfect for your annoying big (or little) sibling!

 

Gifts For Brother

At EMP, you will find a huge selection of over 30,000 products to choose from. Gift-giving doesn’t have to be difficult because you already know which video game your brother is into at the moment, or which TV series they’ve watched on repeat or which bands they’ve been to see this year.  Just pick the franchise that suits them best and you are sure to find the perfect gift for a big or little brother at EMP – no matter what their taste.
