Benicassim 2009 hit by bad weather kings of leon cancel #benicassim

Benicassim enters its third day tonight but day 2 was cacelled due to bad weather. Kings Of Leon and Maximo Park were forced to not perfrom last night ( friday July 17th 2009) due to bad weather.

Benicassim organisers pulled both the main acts as they said the weather was too bad for it to carry on.
The decision caused a lot of angry fans to boo as they left the building.

It is hoped that the King of Leon headline show can be performed tonight ( July 18th 2009) together with Maximo Park.
The day had already had dramas with a fire near the festival site, the show continued during this with Paul Weller performing on the Escenario Verde stage with no interruptions.

Benicassim has 2 more days to run. We would like to hear your Benicassim Reviews, and your eye witness accounts.

If your at the festival please leave a message on our benicassim twitter account or leave us a comment below with your benicassim 2009 reviews . We hope everyone is safe and well and the rest of the event goes without any more incidents.

To start, you’re going need a good bag or rucksack that won’t fall apart the first time you throw it to the ground. Whatever you bring along, you’ll have to carry it with you, so bear that in mind. Therefore, eight pairs of heels are not going to be necessary, unless you’re Kate Moss. Line your bag with black sacks to add some extra defence from rain and water, as you don’t want to wake up in the morning having to put on wet clothes. Not a pleasurable experience.

Ensure you have a fully working tent and have checked everything before you leave. Try putting it up in the garden so you know what you’re doing and that all the parts are there. There’s nothing worse than turning up with a tent you’ve borrowed and finding you’ve got no ground sheet or a broken zip. Take plenty of pegs as you can never have enough and ensure you pick your pitch site carefully.

This is not a fashion parade, so don’t pack anything you wouldn’t want to get ruined and, while fancy dress might seem like a good idea, the novelty soon wears off. Bring clothes that are comfortable, warm, lightweight and ideally have lots of pockets for phones, camera’s, tobacco, etc. Bring wellies if you can carry them or alternatively bring old trainers. Flip flops are lightweight and easily tucked away, but are only useful if the weather is good. Bring more socks than you think you need to keep your feet dry. A single lightweight waterproof is a good idea as it will keep you dry, but will allow your body to breathe. A warm jumper will be needed at night and can also be used as a makeshift pillow. Bring a hat of some sort along to keep off the sun or the rain.

Oasis UK Tour Tickets


Both Oasis concerts at Manchester’s Heaton Park in June have sold out this morning in under two hours and due to the phenomenal demand the band have announced a third night’s performance in one of Europe’s biggest municipal parks. Oasis will now also be playing Heaton Park, Manchester on Thursday the 4th June, 2009 once again with very special guests Kasabian and The Enemy.

Tickets for all other stadium shows are selling fast and fans are urged to book quickly to avoid disappointment.

OASIS will undertake their biggest ever tour of open air venues in the UK and Ireland next summer. It includes two dates at the iconic new Wembley Stadium as well as the promised homecoming shows over two nights in Manchester’s Heaton Park. The tour will also see the band’s first ever visit to Sunderland’s Stadium of Light.

Oasis will be joined on all the UK dates by special guests Kasabian and The Enemy.

These will be the band’s first shows at the new Wembley Stadium, having filmed their acclaimed live DVD ‘Familiar to Millions’ at the old venue in 2000. The Manchester dates at Heaton Park coincide with the centenary of the first music event in the park, when a gramophone recording of the Italian opera singer Enrico Caruso attracted 40,000 to the beautiful Manchester City Council owned family park. More recently in 1991, Electronic, The Buzzcocks and Happy Mondays (amongst others) played a two day concert to honour the legendary Factory Records produce Martin Hannett who had died earlier that year. Although this is the first headline appearance at the legendary Slane Castle, Oasis did perform there in 1995 as guests of REM.

The band are presently on a sold out tour of the UK, (which includes two nights at Wembley Arena) which saw all 180,000 tickets sell out as quickly as phone lines and internet sites could process applications.

Benicassim Festival 2008

The Benicassim Festival or Festival Internacional de Benicassim ( FIB) Benicàssim = FIB Heineken fiberfib is more than just another music festival.  It is a UK music festival with sunshine,  has been touted as the “Spanish Glastonbury” or “Glasto del Sol”  for UK festival goers it became the must goto festival in 2006,  with the absence of the mother of all festivals Glastonbury a reputed 12,000 Brits made the trip to Spain.  Benicassim Festival 2007 followed 2006 by selling out.   Benicassim 2008 will take place between 17th and 20th July 2008.   This English language guide to Benicassim aims to help you plan your trip in 2008.   Hotels book up quickly so we recommend you book them early.  The Campsite opens 14th July 2008 and closes on 22nd July 2008


What is Benicassim Festival like?

Benicassim is situated between Barcelona and Valencia.  The Festival runs for 8 days ( well the camp site opens 3 days before the event starts) and plays host to over 100 bands, and ends with a massive free beach party.  The sleep town of Benicassim has welcomed some of the world greatest artists including last year the Pixies, The Strokes, Franz Ferdinand and Depeche Mode and Morrissey.   The appeal to UK festival goers is the guaranteed sunshine although they may be praying to be in the more mild climate of Mr Eavis, cow field while they melt in the Spanish sun!!   That said you can always find a quiet shady spot for a siesta or cool down in the Mediterranean sea.   The music does not actually start till late afternoon tand goes on through the night till around 8am in the morning,  the headliners go on stage around 2am.
