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 foodie’s 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.

Flights & Accommodation
We know you have high standards, so instead of selling packages, you can book your own flights & accommodation so it’s exactly what YOU want!
Santorini has one airport and it takes 3-4 hours to get to from the UK. Most airlines fly direct, but it will often work out cheaper to book your flights and hotel as a package through Expedia / www.expedia.co.uk. There are 4 night packages including hotel & flight from £220 per person. It's important you book your accomodation in the Thira (Fira) area as this is where coach pick up & drop off is. Check flights here
Hotels / Apartments
There are 100s of great options for every budget. Most will offer free airport collection and drop off. It’s advised that you stay in Thira (Fira) which is the capital & and only 10 minutes from the airport. It will also be where the coaches will take you to the venues & drop you back at (both a 20 min journey).
