The pop-punk, ska punk, metal and alternative rock festival returns to Hatfield on Sunday, May 24, 2020, for Slam Dunk Festival South.

Sum 41 and Don Broco have already been announced as co-headliners of the festival, which will take place in the grounds of historic Hertfordshire stately home Hatfield House for the third time.

May's festival in Hatfield Park will also mark the 10th anniversary of Slam Dunk first arriving in the town at the University of Hertfordshire and its Forum Hertfordshire site on the College Lane Campus.

Promoters confirmed another 10 bands for the Slam Dunk 2020 line-up on Kerrang! Radio on Christmas Day, including St Albans band Trash Boat fresh from their festive gig at the Pioneer Club in the city.
