Supa Dupa Fly Santorini: Bringing Urban Music to One of Europe's Most Beautiful Islands

14 March 2017 08:00

120 miles from mainland Greece, Santorini has become the heart of the Greek islands. Famed for its magical cave apartments, epic sunsets and vibrant nightlife, the historic and spiritual island has rushed to the top of everyone's island bucket list.  

UK R&B club night Supa Dupa Fly clocked on, and in 2016 decided to marry their sell-out night with the European island, inviting Emily Rawson, Matchstick, TP and others to play on the edge of volcanoes, inside caves, aside pools and inside a selection of Thira's (Santorini's capital) clubs.

And so Supa Dupa Fly Santorini was born. This June the festival is back on the island for another five days and nights of R&B, garage, hip-hop and grime with the likes of Artful Dodger, Clara Amfo, Semtex and Shortee Blitz.

Hailed as London's best R&B night by Time Out, the urban brand is a nineties and noughties lover's dream, and has hosted Rita Ora, Disclosure, Jazzy Jeff and DJ EZ since its inception.


And while the festival will be laying on a party-packed programme, there's no excuse not to explore the island, whether that's during the festival, or by extending your trip either side.

For those after a touch of culture, check out the Museum of Prehistoric Thira, filled with Minoan murals rescued from pre-cataclysm Akrotíri. 

Or if the beach is more your thing, the dark, volcanic-sand or pebble beaches of Perivólas and Vlyháda in the far south of the island are two must visits.


The island is also full of great hiking routes to sweat out those hangovers: two classic routes go from Períssa to Kamári past Thira, and along the caldera edge from Imerovígli to Oía at the northern tip of the island. 

You can also take a day trip by boat to one of the caldera inlets, bathing in their natural hot springs.

But whatever you choose to get up to while on Santorini, you can guarantee it'll be an experience you'll never forget. It's not often you get to marry urban sounds with such an open and inspiring setting. And it's a chance no one should pass up.


Supa Dupa Fly Santorini will take place on 9-13 June 2017. Find out more on our guide, and book your tickets and packages here.
