Also appearing will be live dubstep trio Tek-One, Tyler Mae with an exclusive live set, Pesk & Boca, Trolley Snatcha and local DJs.

If last year’s Slam Dunk South layout is anything to go by, the main stage at Hatfield will be held outdoors on the University of Hertfordshire’s Hutton Lawn.

The main indoor arena will be inside the Forum Hertfordshire’s 1,500-capacity Auditorium, scene of a sell-out show by Enter Shikari last month.

Other stages at the College Lane entertainment complex will be situated in the Style Bar, upstairs in the Attic, in the ground floor Refectory, over in the adjoining EleHouse and outdoors in the piazza.
