Since it began in 1995 Benicassim has secured itself a place as one of Europe’s premier festivals. Each year revellers from around the world descend on the Costa del Azahar to experience four days of music, art, theatre, dance, fashion and short films.
The festival frequently provides a line-up that is among the best in Europe with a selection of stellar artists and superstar DJs. Across the event’s five stages the likes of Sigur Ros, Gnarls Barkley, Leonard Cohen and Justice all performed last year, so, as per usual, expect a similar calibre of artists this time around.
Organisers allow festival-goers to stay in the free campsite for up to nine days (three days before and two days after the festival) and enjoy the local beach and usually scorching sunshine. As Spanish times apply, an apartment is recommended as the music doesn’t start until evening and continues through the night, which means the sun rises as you fall!
