  1. Benicassim (FIB) 2018

    Ok, let’s do it - favourite PSB song??? (I’ll kick it off) Domino Dancing (or Opportunities)

    There a lockers which you can hire, which come in various sizes/prices, that are recommended, as like may festivals, I've heard of thefts from tents over the years. These usually go on sale via the official site, about 2-3 months prior, and have sold out in the past. Might be wise to book one, or share one with a group of mates, to keep your valuables in.

    The festival runs each night from approx 7pm to 7am (5am on Thu night/Fri morn) so during the 4 nights of festival weekend, nothing happens in town club wise, as everyone is partying until early hours at the festival (in t shirts and shorts, in 20c-25c temps even at 4am-6am in the morning). It goes all night, as long as you can. On the Mon/Tue/Wed night before the festival starts, there are club nights around the town, run by popular Spanish club operators, and also Propaganda from the UK, so those taking advantage of the free camping for the full week, from Mon 16th, there’s some decent stuff to do, pre-fest..

    ...and another; “I book to go to Beni every year, the week I get back, so the line up isn't always the be all and end all for me, or the people I go with, as it's a great festival combined with a top holiday by the beach, in the sun, etc.... Across the weekend, I hope that there's usually about 15-20 acts that I want to see. Last year was a freak year, as there were 32 over the weekend who I would go and see at any festival, many of whom I'd also pay to see on a UK tour. Of the 14 acts confirmed so far this year, there's already 10 who I'm really looking forward to catching, so it's a really good initial announcement so far, for me personally. Hope there will be another 10+ more I like/want to see, announced between now and July, of which I'm in no doubt there will be. At least then there'll be less clashes than there were last year!!!” In last week’s update there’s about another 5 or 6 acts which really interest me, and who I’ll be hoping I can get to see. That’s 16 now, so averaging 4 a night. I’m actually hoping there won’t be stacks of more must sees announced in Apr, May or Jun, otherwise 2018 will have nearly as many clashes as last year. It’s a great vibe in general, and if there’s nothing that floats your boat one night for a couple of hours just head up to the South Beach Party area, and lose yourself there having a good dance to decent House and Electronica, kick you shoes off, etc....

    From a previous post/reply of mine; “One of the best things about Beni, even more so this year for example, is that you can be at the main stage watching a band, a song that you don't know/like comes on, and you can go for a piss, get a beer, and be back in the same spot you came from (within reason) by the time the next song starts up, 4-5 mins later. The ratio of bars/loos to punters, is fantastic, likewise is the fact that you can move from one stage to another, within a 2 to 5 minute max walk, unlike most other large festivals I've been to over the decades!”

    Anyone on social media, who was still expecting AM's, needs their head looking at. Glad they'll be staying away or selling their tickets, tbh.
  8. Benicassim (FIB) 2018

    Too right Ged!!!! We’re thrilled to announce the legendary PET SHOP BOYS, as well as JUSTICE, MADNESS, THE KOOKS, SLEAFORD MODS, J HUS, BELLE AND SEBASTIAN and many more amazing acts for FIB Benicàssim, taking place on July 19 – 22 in Benicàssim, Spain. PET SHOP BOYS will join the already announced THE KILLERS, LIAM GALLAGHER and TRAVIS SCOTT as headliners, plus many more amazing acts including TWO DOOR CINEMA CLUB, THE VACCINES,CATFISH AND THE BOTTLEMEN and BASTILLE, making FIB 2018 the unmissable festival of the summer. One of the most commercially and critically successful groups of their era, PET SHOP BOYS, will be headlining at FIB 2018. Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe have consistently navigated the shifting landscape of modern dance – pop, moving easily from disco to house to techno with their own image and sound remaining completely intact. Always one step ahead, the lushly romantic synth-pop two-piece have sold more than 50 million records worldwide, and with tracks like ‘West End Girls’, ‘It’s A Sin’ and ‘Go West’ amongst an incredible forty-two Top 30 singles, we’re guaranteed a hit-filled spectacular from the most successful duo in UK music history when PET SHOP BOYS land in Benicàssim. Responsible for some of the best dance music of the 21st century and all the best parties, the critically acclaimed JUSTICE are heading for Benicàssim. Their phenomenal live shows - a relentless clash of dance styles with an electro-punk-rock edge mixed with stunning visuals - never fail to take the breath away. Prepare to be blown away when they take control of the main stage this summer. Camden’s nuttiest MADNESS will take to the stage for a hit filled set of ska and pop anthems including ‘One Step Beyond’ and ‘Embarrassment’ that have made them one of the UK’s most (quint)essential bands. Welcome to the House of FIB! Brighton four-piece THE KOOKS join the lineup off the back of their ‘Best Of…So Far’ tour. A decade on from their now 5 times platinum debut the band continue to thrill the faithful and win new converts wherever they go. Mixing grime, afro-beat, dancehall and r&b, UK rapper J HUS has shot to the forefront of the current scene. After appearing on Stormzy’s ‘Bad Boys’ he went on to have his own huge chart success in 2017 with ‘Did You See’ and ‘Bouff Daddy’ from his outstanding debut album ‘Common Sense’ which has seen him nominated for three Brit Awards and the Mercury Prize. A FIB debut not to be missed. We can’t wait for the Benicassim debut from SLEAFORD MODS who’ll be bringing their own-brand English Tapas to Spain. The hip/hop punk act fronted by Jason Williamson, ably supported by Andrew Fearn, combine poetic rants over minimalist beats with pounding bass guitar which over the course of four devastatingly brilliant albums have seen them develop into possibly the angriest, and definitely one of the best, UK acts around today. That’s entertainment! Also confirmed are the wonderfully unique Scottish seven-piece BELLE AND SEBASTIAN who have truly earned their place in music history. One of the most thoughtful and compelling bands of our time, catch them bring their joy and energy to FIB in July. Back with new album ‘Glasshouse’ JESSIE WARE brings her uniquely sophisticated and intimately soulful pop to Benicàssim, while incredible New York rapper and Smart Girl Club founder PRINCESS NOKIA’s live show is not to be missed following the release of her phenomenal debut studio album ‘1992 Deluxe’. THE MAGIC GANG have built a reputation as “one of the country’s most exciting bands” (NME) and they are ready to prove it when they take to the stage at Benicassim. The four-piece are about to release their highly anticipated debut album this spring and are set for big things in 2018. Elsewhere there’s jagged, lo-fi punk rock from New York’s fabulous PARQUET COURTS, Howling Bell’s JUANITA STEIN will showcase the evocative, country – tinged beauty of her debut solo album ‘America’ and Irish folk duo HUDSON TAYLOR also join. Spanish acts are of course well represented at the festival with heavyweights IZAL leading the way off the back of their soon-to-be-released fourth album ‘Autoterepia’. Joining them in July will be DORIAN, one of Spain’s most renowned bands, NATHY PELUSO bringing her elegant hip hop and Madrid’s 80s dream pop band TERRY VS. TORI.
