New Found Glory, Of Mice And Men and more celebrate the festival's 10th birthday in style.
Every pop punk kid and scene queen knows that there is only one appropriate way to spend the final weekend in May - hanging at the UK's biggest pop punk party aka Slam Dunk.
Yes, Slam Dunk has been aggressively rocking the UK into a giant circle pit for 10 years now, and they've certainly come a long way since that first festival back in 2006, headlined by some young relatively unknown upstarts named Fall Out Boy who have since gone on to be "quite successful".
To celebrate the past decade, this year's lineup featured all the biggest bands from the scene, from Panic! At The Disco to New Found Glory, Yellowcard to Of Mice And Men, as well as tons of new bands, packed bars and, of course, pizza.
So, what went down at Hatfield Forum at the festival's "South" leg?
Here's a few things we "learned" along the way.
Although, slightly annoyed a dog has better access than we do.
For real tho - serious outfit goals.
We're pretty sure this was intentional.
Chad would look great with a full rainbow do.
Plenty of room at the back.
He crosses all generations and genders. But you knew that already.
Tbf it was steamy as f*ck in that room.
Well, that's a...unique idea.
Not to us though. We weren't nice enough.
Matches the hair too.
No offence to the many great bands I've seen and interviewed today but my Slam Dunk festival highlight is definitely the curry I just ate.— James Wilson-Taylor (@mrjaytee) May 30, 2016
It really was that good.
We got major Dawson's Creek vibes.
Plus they've added "Golden Days" into the set now which is, of course, very exciting.
