The Benicassim Festival line up has been announced bands playing include Babyshambles , My Bloody Valentine and Jose Gonzalez.
The Spanish festival takes place between Thursday 17th July 2008 and Sunday 20th July 2008 in Benicasim which is between Valencia and Barcelona on the east coast of spain.
The event is also known as Festival Internacional de Benicassim or FIB Heineken. In previous years acts such as Muse, Morrisey, Artic Monkeys, Radiohead and the Cure have all played the event.
Benicassim always serves up a great mix of Indie Bands and established world famous rock bands, together with local Spanish groups and top DJ’s. The event is different to UK festivals with music starting late evening and going through the night. The event is right next to the beach so in the day time fans cheer around the beach, or in hotel pool areas.
