    Which European festivals and events have been cancelled due to coronavirus? 

    An updating list of the music and cultural festivals, and sporting events, across Europe that have been cancelled, postponed, or rescheduled in 2020 due to COVID-19, and those that remain unchanged (for now).

    Stoke Travel Events

    All Stoke events for 2022 can be booked with risk-free €1 deposits. Make travel plans during lockdown. 

    Barcelona Boat Parties

    The Barcelona Boat Parties are scheduled to go ahead in June, pending the Spanish government’s regulations regarding group gatherings. Book your Barcelona Boat Party now with risk-free €1 deposits. 

    San Sebastian Surf Camp

    Currently open, for whoever can make it there. If you’re able to get yourself to Bilbao, or San Sebastian, then come on down to the surf camp, we’re surfing every day, hiking in the national park that joins our property when there are no waves, skating our mini ramp, eating delicious food and drinking beers/wines/ciders and talking shit. We’ll be open until October at least, so jump on those €1 deposits. 

    San Vino/The Wine Fight

    It hasn’t actually been cancelled yet, but as it’s in Spain and at the end of June, we imagine that if it does go ahead it will be a socially distanced wine fight, which would be strange if not impossible. 

    The Running Of The Bulls

    Pamplona’s infamous bull run, and the epic San Fermin street party that we’re all about, has been cancelled for the year, offering the poor bulls a temporary reprieve. 

    La Tomatina

    If you looked up social distancing in the dictionary of opposites there would be a photo of La Tomatina, and so we’ll officially be waiting a year to throw tomatoes at each other’s faces. 


    This one hurts bad, because we’d held out in hope that it would be going ahead later in the year, but the ever prudent German authorities decided against hosting the world’s biggest, best, most beautiful and original beer fest this year. 2021 is going to be huge (as is Springfest 2021). 


    The Scottish New Year celebration is still going ahead, maybe even in a post-vaccine world, and look, we really couldn’t think of any better way to rung in the new year, and to tell coronavirus to get tae fuck, than during  a good old fashioned Edinburgh knees up. 

    Sitges Carnival

    Game on. 

    Andorra Ski Weekenders

    We had to turn our final trip of 2020 around at the border as lockdowns were announced while we were on the road! But coming off the back of an otherwise sold out season, we’ll be back in 2021 with an expanded Andorra ski trip season.  

    Spring Break Ibiza

    2020 was cancelled at the last minute, and so we’re damn frothing for Spring Break Ibiza 2021, because for us there’s absolutely nothing finer than partying all night and sunning all the day on the world’s number one island for unbridled hedonism. 


    2020 was cancelled, which means we’ll be smashing Springfest 2021 with reckless abandon. We’re also offering free Springfest trips for health care workers from around the world, so you know it’s going to be a real vibe in Munich next April/May.
