What is it?
Benicassim Festival (Spain)
A cross between a music festival and a summer holiday with your mates, Benicassim's popularity has soared in recent years due to its guaranteed hot climate and lack of rain plus the attraction of a beautiful beach to laze around on during the day in typical Spanish siesta style. Four days of indie pop and electronica will keep your thirst for music well and truly quenched. As well as a massive Main Stage there's also several smaller stages in tents plus a 10,000 capacity dance tent complete with cooling water misters and fans to keep everyone cool. With bands starting around 6pm, headliners hitting the stages at around 1am and DJs on to 6am, Benicassim is ideal for all those who prefer to stay up all night and sleep all day.
