    Sonar Festival

    Every year in June, Barcelona has a massive influx of music lovers from all over the world who want to attend this epic festival.

    Sonar Festival

    A nonstop party lasting for three days and it is now one of the most famous festivals in Europe. You can recognize them by their trendy sunglasses and fancy flip flops, basking in the sun of Barcelona while they listen to the variety of artists Sonar offers.

    Stoke’s Sonar Festival includes a stay at Stoke’s magnificent beachfront hostel, hearty breakfast and delicious dinner daily, best of Barcelona walking tour, either a Spanish Cooking Class, party pack or, boat party, crazy pre-game drink deals and discounts for wild nights out, nightly guest list club entry, plus access to an arsenal of activities to add on like bike tours, paintball, Barcelona Beer Bike, tapas tours, waterpark parties, jet-skiing, kayaking and of course the legendary Barcelona Boat Parties!

    Join them this summer on Stoke’s Barcelona City Break!

    Barcelona City Break

    The city of Barcelona is like that crazy beautiful chick you hope to meet while traveling, stunning from all angles with a wild nocturnal side. And since she’s our European home base, Stoke knows Barcelona better than anyone, and take it from us, Barcelona is a good idea any time of year. Winter, spring, summer or fall, Barcelona has it all! Our walking tour will take you to her most famous sights so you can cross Gaudi, the Arc de Triomf and Barceloneta beach off your bucket list. Then choose from our Spanish Cooking Party, satisfy your cultural appetite the Spanish Cooking Class where our chef will teach you how to make a delicious paella and fresh homemade sangria; BCN Party Pack, starting at one of our favourite Port Olimpic bars with drinks on us and then heading into one of the hottest Barcelona nightclubs; or the legendary Barcelona Boat Party, 2 hours on board the best party in Barcelona with great views, and great vibes. There’s no better way to pregame for a wild night of fiestas, and no one parties like the Spanish or like Stoke. We’ll start with craft beer or homemade sangria and work our way to Barcelona’s best beach clubs, heading back to our beachfront home only when the sun comes up, and the next day we’ll do it all again. Have it all on your Sonar getaway. Want more? We have a whole bunch of special add-on activities like cooking classes, flamenco shows, tapas tours, cocktail class, salsa nights, waterpark and of course the legendary Stoke Boat Parties.

    Stoke Travel Passport Holders

    Holders may book Sonar with nights from their Stoke Travel Passport. Subject to €15 nightly surcharge. Unsure what the Stoke Travel Passport is? Check it out here! Your universe will change.

    Trip Type:

    Barcelona, Spain

    The home of Gaudi, Dali, the 1992 Olympics, FCB and the French Bulldog. It’s a tourist Mecca. Thousands upon millions upon billions of sun-seeking, fun-loving, revellers flock here every year and there’s a bloody good reason for it. It’s because Barcelona is awesome. The nightlife is nothing less than hectic and intense, the day life is a myriad of colours, sites, sounds, smells, street performers and sangria.

    We stay in an area of Barcelona called Poblenou, just minutes from the beach, surrounded with cool bars and restaurants, and easy access to transport links.

    Meet us there

    Come fly to us

    Wherever you are in the world you can fly to Barcelona. Ryanair and Easyjet are budget favourites that fly to Barcelona regularly. One thing to remember is that Girona Airport which is sometimes the cheapest option is an hour by bus from downtown Barcelona.

    Choo choo train

    A great option if you’re coming to Barcelona from elsewhere in Spain, or from France. Check out Renfe for trains from within Spain and snfc for those departing within France.

    Buses are for legends

    Check Eurolines for international buses to Barcelona, or Vibasa for buses from within Spain.

    We stay in an area of Barcelona called Poblenou, just minutes from the beach, surrounded with cool bars and restaurants, and easy access to transport links.

    The train or Aerobus will take you into Barcelona centre, then jump on the metro L4 to Poblenou station, from there we are just a short walk.
