There are direct trains from London Kings Cross to Hatfield that arrive at the doorstep of the festival in 22 minutes, and the site is still just off the A1 (M). The Slam Dunk South Afterparty will be held at University of Hertfordshire (the previous home of the festival, also known as Hatfield Forum). Buses will be laid on from the Hatfield House site to transport people to the Afterparty. Those attending the Afterparty will receive free parking at The Forum all day.
