St Albans band Enter Shikari headlined the 2017 main stage at the uni’s College Lane Campus, bringing to an end their special shows to mark 10 years since the release of debut album Take To The Skies.

The Hatfield leg of the touring pop-punk, ska punk, metal and alternative rock festival featured the last ever performance from We Are The Ocean on the main stage.

The Jägermeister Stage on the Hutton Lawn also saw performances from the likes of Don Broco, Beartooth and Japanese band Crossfaith throughout the afternoon.

Texas rock band Bowling for Soup headlined the nearby Fireball Stage, after American ska punks Less Than Jake had returned to Hatfield for another Slam Dunk set.

The Slam Dunk tour also visited Birmingham and Leeds over the Bank Holiday weekend.
