With a venue that stretches to 130 000 square meters, Benicassim will lure you in with its seductive Spanish charm, and draw-dropping coastline.
For the most part of the year, Benicassim is a small, quiet Spanish town but for a week every July hordes of festival goers make their pilgrimage to Spain's most loved music festival.
Celebrating 16 years of supplying music lovers with a beach-side haven, this years line up includes Kasabian, Vampire Weekend, The Temper Trap, Hot Chip, Gorillaz, The Prodigy, Dizzee Rascal, Lily Allen, The Klaxons, Cut Copy, Goldfrapp, Mumford & Sons...drooling yet?
Completing the circle of cultural enrichment, there will be areas dedicated to theatre, fashion, dance and art. A particular highlight this year is The Short Film Festival, which will include activities that work in unison with the musical line up.
The festival will take place from 15th – 18th July, with camping open from 13th - 20th July.
