After the runaway success of Supa Dupa Fly x Santorini 2016, we're back for 2017, but this time we're going even bigger, with more partygoers and some HUGE headliners...
Soak up rays all day, dance all night at the summer's hottest new festival - brought to you by the people behind the UK's number one throwback RnB and Hiphop night. Get ready for sizzling soirees on the edge of volcanos, raves in caves, exclusive pool parties and VIP villa bashes at some of Europe's most breathtaking venues.
Santorini is a beautiful island in the Aegean sea, 120 miles from mainland Greece. Rich in history and steeped in myth, it's famed for being the remains of a volcanic eruption 3,000 years ago. Today it boasts atmospheric cave apartments, magical sunsets, swish restaurants, vibrant nightlife, turquoise sea and gorgeous beaches. With outstanding restaurants and tavernas, where fresh fish is always on the menu, it's a foodies dream. No wonder it's listed on TripAdvisor as one of the top five islands in the world.
Hailed as 'London's best RnB night' by Time Out, Supa Dupa Fly is an essential fixture in any 90s & 00s Hiphop, RnB and Garage lover's diary. Since 2011, we've grown to become the biggest and best event of our kind in the UK, sold out every week. Rita Ora, Disclosure, Jazzy Jeff, EZ, Heartless Crew are just some of the artists who've performed at Supa Dupa Fly, not to mention impromptu sets from Amerie and Professor Green, plus special guests Emeli Sande and Lion Babe. Every year we host arenas at festivals like Lovebox and numerous high-profile shows at Soho and Shoreditch House. Recent press features include Time Out, The Guardian, The Metro and The Evening Standard.

For everyone who wishes to explore the island, it takes only 45 minutes to travel from one end of the island to the other by car or quad
WATCH THE FAMOUS SUNSET FROM OIA
Oia is at the very top of Santorini, where the sunset is famous for attracting huge crowds & is the view of a thousand postcards! Get there at roughly 7.30pm to ensure you get a good spot.
RESTAURANTS & WINE TASTING
Santorini has some of the best restaurants we’ve ever eaten at, and we know our food! Most serve traditional Greek Cuisine, and/or fresh fish. Watch out for our recommendations in 'The guide' coming in April!
Santorini also produces a lot of very good wine! Many of the wineries also have incredible views on the sunset over the caldera, and include local cheeses in the tastings. Highly recommended!
Most of these last all day & include food & drinks. We suggest barbarossasailing.com
HIRE A QUAD
This is best way to explore the island! Please be safe. Santorini Motor Club will give a 20% discount for all car, bike and atv (quad) hire. Email firstname.lastname@example.org & ask for KOSTAS quoting Supa Dupa Fly.
There are lots of gorgeous beaches, with safe swimming. Perissa Beach & Perivolos Beach are a 30 min bus journey or a 20 min drive from Fira. Vlychada Beach is but about a 20 minute drive. Kamari beach is around 10 minutes away, but more touristy.
For just £75 for parties only or £95 your SDF Santorini ticket includes full access to our parties over four days & nights, as well as coach transfers to and from Theros Wave Bar & Jojo Beach Bar. Coach pick up & collection is close to the main town of Thira (Fira). We recommend you book your accommodation near here for minimal late night walking! Taxi's are available for anyone that wishes to stay away from Thira, however you must pre-book.
We strongly recommend you book your accommodation close to Thira (Fira) or Katerados. This is also where the Supa Dupa Fly coaches will take you to and from the venues - both a 20 minute journey. There are cheaper options in Perissa / Perivolos / Kamari although you would need to walk or take taxis to the venues.
Here are a few other places we recommend...
Santorini has one airport and it takes 3-4 hours to get to from the UK. Most airlines fly directly, but it will often work out cheaper to book your flights and hotel as a package through expedia.co.uk. Flight and hotel packages (based on two sharing) are from £232. Flights only with Skyscanner via Athens £176 with easyjet / ryanair.
SIMPLE STEPS TO BOOK FLIGHT / HOTEL PACKAGES
Go to Expedia.co.uk
Type in city flying from (i.e London) then going to Santorini. Type in dates (for example 9-13 June) select area as Fira (Thira) / Katerados (these are the areas we recommend you stay in). If you don't mind paying for taxi's to the venues, you may prefer to stay in Perissa / Perivolis or Kamari which are often cheaper.
If you're on a budget select prices low to high on the filter so you see the cheapest possible deals!
