The Hottest Festival Around – Benicassim 2012


With Galsto taking a year off, many more Brits are expected to make the trip over to Spain to see what we think will be one of the best line-ups of the summer festival season. Bennicasim host an array of talent including the likes of Noel Gallagher, Miles Kane and Bombay Bicycle Club. They’ll join the likes of Florence and the machine, The Vaccines and of course, massive headliners The Stone Roses. The festival runs from July 12-15. 165 Euros will bag you a 4 day ticket and are available here.

Example, Chase & Status, Jesse J & David Guetta will be the big names amongst the POP contingent. The lineup is full of Legends, with Bob Dylan, New Order & Buzzcocks all showing they can still cut it with the youngsters.

The festival has a rich history in pulling in the big bands. Set in an idyllic beach town north of Valencia, it runs throughout the night to give festival goers respite from the 30 degree daily heat. The week long festival is renowned for a diverse lineup with the best of European acts.

TGR will have someone there to bring you the full stories, news, interviews and photo’s. Buy tickets for Bennicasim 2012 here!
