Oasis rumoured to be playing Benicassim 2009

Oasis are set to play a series of summer festivals in 2009 according to Virtual Festivals website. They say that the Manchester band fronted by the gallagher brothers will headline one of the days of the spanish festival due to take place on 16-19 July 2009.

This is massive news, the 2008 festival was a great success as an event, but fans of this forum were not so keen on the 2008 line up.

If the gossip surrounding Oasis being on the Benicassim Festival is confirmed is a good sign that in 2009 the organisers are going to go for bigger world acts, to establish Benicassim as one of the biggest events in the European Festival Calendar.

What do you think to the news that Oasis might be playing we would love to hear from you.
