Spring Break UK was launched for the first time last year and saw students from across the UK take a break from their studies to head to the Magaluf resort Mallorca. While relativily small by comparison to Spring Break US students in Cancun, this represents a good beginning to spread this "rite of passage" to european students.
SB UK took over Mallorca again in 2009 from 30th March to 3rd April 2009. Instead of MTV, the promotors of SBUK are working with Sony Music Entertainment UK and other sponsors to help make Spring Break in UK a annual event like it is with American students.
