The pop-punk, ska, rock, punk and metal festival returns to the University of Hertfordshire on Sunday, May 26 – a day after the sold-out Leeds show and 24 hours before the new Midlands leg in Wolverhampton.

Maryland pop-punks All Time Low will headline the main stage, with the festival’s 2013 line-up also including the likes of Cancer Bats, Sleeping With Sirens, Pierce The Veil, King Prawn, Deaf Havana, WGC band Heights, The Skints, Mallory Knox and Four Year Strong over seven arenas.

SDF13 organisers will reveal the full stage times on Wednesday, as well as the replacements on the Hatfield bill for We Are The Ocean, who have pulled out of the Forum Hertfordshire festival to play BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Ireland.

An update on the festival’s Facebook page said: “To all those people asking about stage times... we can confirm that these will be published on Wednesday 22nd May.
