Who wants to be an ingredient in the world’s largest spaghetti bolognese? Or perhaps you want to spread yourself around like on a bruschetta? In any case, book now to La Tomatina Festival 2019 because it’s going to get pulpy, saucy and it’s going to be an awesome day of tomato throwing!

This is one of the ‘must do’ European festivals and definitely one of our faves. We dig it so much because when we ain’t hurling tomatoes at each other we’re chilling by the pool, sunning on the beach, dancing up a storm in Valencia city, or losing our minds in fun related incidents in Ibiza…

INCLUSIONS 

  • Includes transfers to and from the Tomato fight,
  • Tasty breakfast each morning,
  • Hearty dinner every second evening,
  • Experienced guides to lead you through the mayhem,
  • A Bloody Mary on the morning of La Tomatina Festival,

 

The Tomato Festival itself is one morning of madness; tens of thousands of people in a town of many less. Before the tomato fight even starts the locals have fun soaking all the festival goers with hoses, water bombs, water pistols and other water holding vessels. The streets are packed and they get even more so with the arrival of trucks carrying tomatoes- many, many tonnes of tomatoes.

Once we avoid getting squashed by the trucks the fight begins, and for the next little while we throw salad fruits to our hearts content at strangers, friends, locals and tourists alike. Once it’s all said and done, we get rinsed off by the locals (some even give us shampoo!) and head back to camp to smarten ourselves up ready to continue partying into the evening. at our official afterparty in Valencia!

We’re the only ones who will also arm you before battle, with Bloody Marys and piles of cooked spaghetti in your hand so you can put all that tomato slush to good use. And, of course, we provide you with a delicious bottle of sangria that will pair nicely with the carnage.

CAMPING AT LA TOMATINA FESTIVAL 2018

The night before La Tomatina Festival 2018, you can head to the Water & wine fight in Requeña and it won’t break the bank at €20 for the transport. We go there, we lurk about in the streets drinking and chilling with the locals. At 11pm you have the option to go into a fake bullfight (meaning no cute, little bulls get killed) – the bracelets are available there so you can just get ’em on arrival. At 1am, we all head through the streets lead by a brass band and the locals go nuts with wine and water and general frivolity… and so do we. Take a cup with you to drink deeply of the spoils of this cultural, calamitous water and wine war.
What should we bring?
Something warm to sleep in, pillow and a torch for your tent, condoms (better safe than sorry!), your camera, an awesome party shirt.
Are there shuttles to and from Oktoberfest?
No, but our guides will direct you onto public transport so you don’t get lost, just don’t stray too far. We find that no matter how many steins one has consumed, miraculously most of our guests come back safe and sound. Munich’s cheap and easy public transport leaves from the festival and takes you back to the campsite all day everyday. But be warned… if you don’t buy a ticket, you can be fined 60€ (that is the equivalent of a whole extra day and night at Oktoberfest!)
Who do we see when we arrive?
Check in at Stoke Reception for your tent allocation and orientation. The reception is open daily from 08:00 to 22:00. Out of hours, a security guard will check you into a tent and you can register with reception the next day.
What is the breakfast like?
Breakfast is whatever our in-house chefs decide on the day… whether it be pancakes and bacon, egg and bacon rolls, bacon and bacon rolls. It usually includes bacon. And if you’re a veg or vegan you can have non-bacon stuff. Our chefs are awesome. Bloody talented is what they are.
How many people can fit in the tents?
We have two-person tents and 7-person teepees. If you are a group of three, one of you will be tented with a new friend of the same sex. Just let us know your preferences on arrival and we’ll do our best to allocate you the tent you would like (subject to availability). For those anti-social humans, we offer private tents for a small additional fee. We understand our guests’ needs… a little extra room for a special someone if the night leads there. Please don’t padlock your tent if you haven’t paid for a solo tent upgrade (we will just cut it off).
What if I don’t want to walk 20m and I want to be tented next to my friend?
Check in at the same time and we’ll do our best to help with your separation anxiety?
What amenities are offered at the camp site?
The campsite offers spacious bathrooms and hot showers for a 1€ token purchased at Guru tent. There’s a restaurant/cafe, vending machines, the best Schnitzel food cart in the world and a little essentials store. WiFi (€2 for 10hrs) and charging stations are available in certain areas and tokens are sold at the campsite reception for laundry facilities.
Where can we buy Lederhosens and Dirndls?
We sell traditional festival costumes as well as awesomely stylish Stoke hoodies, tee- shirts, beanies and all sorts of other handy knick-knacks.
Can we reserve a table in beer halls?
Yes, you just need to prepay for food and drink vouchers and your table can be reserved. This is subject to availability so email info@stoketravel.com as soon as you can for more information.
IIf we are camping does that mean we’ll be attacked by wild animals?
We serve unlimited alcohol at our camps. You, my friend, will be the wild animal.
Where is Starbucks?
Near Haupthbhanof in Zentrum of Munich, there are plenty.
Do the tents have hot water, laptops, power-points, king size beds or fridges?
They’re tents. But if you do want to get fancy, check out our Glamping option.
Is there a guru to answer all my questions?
Yes! Head to our friendly and sometimes tipsy team at the Guru Tent. They’ll have answers on how to get to the beer halls, your breakfast/dinner tickets, your shower tokens, phone charging, what to do in Munich, and how to book your next Festival trip.
When can I check in?
Check in: 14:00. Check out: 11:00. If you arrive earlier than 14:00, we’ll be happy to put you in your tent if it’s available and or keep you hydrated with beers while you wait.
How do get cash money?
There isn’t an ATM at the campsite, so grab your cash beforehand or at the Oktoberfest festival.
Where can I get my unlimited booze from?
For €10/night you can enjoy unlimited beer and sangria at Stoketoberfest, available at our campsite bar. Open 8am to 11pm.
