Travel Six Countries With One Thousand Students in One Race with Student Brake Away

As students across the United Kingdom finish their exams and get ready for a belter of a summer, Young Academic will be bringing you news of all the hottest events and festivals going on in 2011. Student Brake Away, now in its eighth year, is a unique car rally through Europe which offers students and young people the opportunity of an experience of a lifetime.

This year, more than four hundred cars will rally through such party locations as Amsterdam, Munich and Ljubljana. Drivers will take in the scenery and indulge in some thrill seeking activities such as kite surfing or wakeboarding.

The event culminates with a three-day party at Croatian beach club Papaya; see the Young Academic Ultimate Festival Guide for more details.

“Papaya also featured in DJ Magazine’s Top 100 venues in the world and is headlined by Kiss FM DJs The Loose Cannons as well as Shapeshifters.”


This year’s event takes place in August and will be filmed by MTV Europe. A percentage of all profits for this event will go to charity Shelterbox, which provides disaster relief. So, young people can have it large partying through Europe assured in the fact that money is going to a great cause.

Last year’s drivers included Tarzan Team complete with tiger fur vehicle, as can be seen in the fab picture above.

Details and rules for this year’s Student Brake Away can be found at www.studentbrakeaway.co.uk.

Student Brake Away is organised by International Party People.

Direct flights are available to the final 3-day party for those not wanting to drive.

The Loose Cannons host the Monday night show on Kiss FM.
