FIB (Benicassim) Festival – preview
FIB (Benicassim) will be taking place in Spain from 17 to 20 July and with headliners Tinie Tempah, Kasabian, The Libertines and Paolo Nutini the festival is marking its twentieth year with plenty of indie-rock style.
Also on the line up for this year will be James, Paul Weller, Fat White Family, Manic Street Preachers, The Charlatans, M.I.A and Drenge. See the full line up here.
They play across four days and four stages in the seaside resort of Benicassim meaning the festival crowd can head to the beach before the music begins.
The first FIB was held in 1995 with a line up that included The Charlatans, Jesus and Mary Chain, Supergrass, Ride and The Wedding Present as well as a number of ‘britpop’ type bands.
Since then line-ups across the years have included Lou Reed, Morrissey, The Stone Roses, Oasis, Blur, Radiohead, Primal Scream and the Chemical Brothers. The festival also showcases film, fashion and art.
