    Got what it takes to tour Europe?

    STOKE SOUNDCHECK IS HERE TO GIVE ONE LUCKY WINNER THE CHANCE TO Play for 1000s of travellers At Oktoberfest and other European Festivals*

    Stoke Soundcheck

    STOKE TRAVEL’S VERY OWN BATTLE OF THE BANDS: A chance for DJs, electronic artists, bands and performers of all kinds to WIN THE WILDEST EUROPEAN TOUR

    Do you have what it takes to perform in front of thousands of people from all over the globe at some of Europe’s wildest festival campgrounds? Then Stoke Travel wants to hear from you! The Stoke Soundcheck competition is back for its third year – but bigger, badder, and better than before.

    Soundcheck’s has officially returned to give artists the chance to share their music with an international audience and serve as a launch pad for up-and-coming artists around the world. We’re honored to open the doors to Europe’s festival scene for those who wouldn’t otherwise be in the position to go on a European tour. We have the crowds, experience, locations, accommodation and the events to be able to provide this opportunity for the benefit of our winning artist and ultimately for our festival guests who get to experience new music and the inevitable remarkable moments that live music is synonymous with. You will forever be the soundtrack to their summer of 2024.

    We’re calling DJs, bands, and solo artists from all nooks and crannies of this earth to submit their entries starting on March 1 and closing on March 14.


    1. Fill out the entry form NOW and let us know how we can check out your music
    2. If you’re selected to enter the main round we’ll send you an email that will have instructions on the next steps
    3. Prepare some content that shows the judges that you know how to engage an audience (see below for some examples). Submissions OPEN on March 1st and close on March 14th
    4. Post that content to Instagram Reels and/or TikTok making sure to tag @stoketravel and #StokeSoundcheck. If you don’t tag us we won’t see your entry
    5. Start promoting your content across social media! The three acts with the most social media engagement will automatically become Soundcheck 2024 finalists. Our judges will choose the other three. All finalists will be announced on March 21st
    6. Keep making as much noise as possible and we’ll announce a winner on March 28th. Good luck and kick arse!

    What Should I submit to win Stoke Soundcheck 2024?

    Most simply, any video content that is going to catch our judges’ eye and get the most interaction on social media.

    Maybe you’ll take a snippet from one of your music videos or create one just for this competition. You might want to submit a video of you performing – either at home or in the studio or live.

    Maybe you want to create a skit, or a play, or a sketch, or a monologue or… ANYTHING!

    But it really really really should feature some of your music. It should show us and the world what you’re all about and it has to make our judges notice you, what you’re about and your ability to get the audience’s attention.

    And don’t forget to tag @stoketravel and #StokeSoundcheck

    The three entries with the MOST social media interaction will automatically enter the finals. 

    This means that you need to not only share your entries far and wide, but also encourage your friends, family, frenemies and acquaintances to like, comment on and share your entry too. PLUS be mindful of creating content that engages as broad an audience as possible. This is 2024 – we need to see that you can promote yourself (and Stoke Travel hehe).

    Stoke Travel’s judging panel will choose the other three finalists.

    We’ll be looking for creativity, musical style, ability to have fun and encourage others to have fun. We’ll be choosing the acts that best suit the vibe of our festivals and events – because at the end of the day all we want is the best on-site experience for our Stoke Travel travellers!

    Once the finalists are decided you’ll have one last chance to convince the judges that you’re the right artist(s) for Stoke Travel in 2024, with the winner announced on Friday March 29th

    What kind of artists will win Soundcheck 2024?

    This year we’re calling on ALL kinds of performers. Bands, DJs, samplers and loop artists, solo artists AS WELL AS comedians, magicians, actors and acrobats and anybody who can entertain a crowd.

    Stoke Travel, Europe’s biggest festival travel operator, is giving one lucky band, solo artist, or DJ the chance to win a dream tour around Europe. The winning artist will score once in a lifetime gigs at Oktoberfest, the Running of the Bulls, the San Sebastian Surf House and on our Barcelona Boat Parties.  

    All of your accommodation, transportation inside Europe, food, as much beer and sangria as you can drink, and guaranteed crowds are taken care of. The winning artist will need only to get themselves to Stoke Travel’s HQ in Barcelona, bring an umatchable energy to all their gigs with us, and ultimately share their passion for music with the 25,000+ Stokies that’ll be at all our events over the summer!

    And if I don’t win Soundcheck…

    If you don’t place first, you’ve got nothing to fear! No one loses at Stoke. There is a world of possibilities open to all of our entrants. We have multiple slots for bands to play our events in Europe, so if you don’t end up winning that golden ticket, there’s still plenty of fun to be had and gigs to be played with us…annnd how about some free sh*t? We’re going to give all entrants a promo code for unlimited drinks at any of our events they wanna book for the 2023 season, because we’d love you and your fans to be our guests and who doesn’t love free sh*t?

    *We need a commitment to play our Oktoberfest event as an absolute minimum. For artists wanting a more rounded European tour experience we can add San Fermin/Running of the Bulls, Barcelona and/or the San Sebastian Surf House to your tour’s itinerary.
