    I'm slightly apprehensive about this in Beni I must admit. I know it's everywhere but no guarantee it's any good - some decent MD would not go amiss

    You just know Glastonbury weekend is going to be effing PERFECT this year don't you.

    Not sure if this means splits are imminent or if he's just saying he can't tell any more.

    Well happy with Eric Prydz and The Charlatans, I think Eric Prydz will be brilliant out there! Hoping this isn't the last of the names but a slight improvement for sure.

    In his incredibly controversial interview, Morrissey confirmed European gigs in July. Any chance? I'd assume his ego might want to headline.

    Announcement this week maybe?
  7. Benicassim (FIB) 2018

    Peace would be decent.
  8. Benicassim (FIB) 2018

    Damn I keep getting more underwhelmed.
  9. Benicassim (FIB) 2018

    Yep! Noticed The Naked and Famous are playing Bristol and London the week before Beni too, but they seem to be in Austria for the Fri and Sat which makes things unlikely.

    I remember checking the official Twitter account a couple of weeks before the last lineup announcement and they'd followed a load of new bands on there. Checked again a few days after and they'd all gone, thought I was going mad but I can't seem to find any similar fan accounts or anything following the same chunk. Most of those bands ended up being on the lineup anyway, though one I remember being in that list that weren't in the last announcement was James. No idea if I'm going insane or if it's legit but they've just announced new music today. EDIT: Just checked and they're already following James, from ages ago too. I must be going mad. In all seriousness there must be a few British bands as yet unannounced with a semi-decent chance of playing. New music from James as mentioned, The Fratellis, The Wombats, etc.

    So do we reckon maybe a few more bands mid April?
  12. Benicassim (FIB) 2018

    Yeah I'd massively welcome a few of those
  13. Benicassim (FIB) 2018

    Yeah I have a feeling they're still to come, potentially Blossoms too with their new album out. On reflection I think I was overly harsh on the lineup. There are a lot of decent bands under the headliners - I just feel like it's missing another semi-big band such as the likes of Chvrches, MGMT, Tame Impala, etc. It just doesn't help that the Mad Cool lineup is fantastic. Aside from that the lineup is pretty good apart from Travis Scott (not my thing) and Pet Shop Boys (what were they thinking?!) being headliners. Ultimately it's what you make of it, and Benicassim is a great place anyway. I just want to get off of my tits and make the most of it

    This encourages me a bit, as I quite vocally moaned about the lineup. I have been before but I think I missed most of the peripheral stuff, I just watched bands. Are there many club nights around Beni itself?
  15. Benicassim (FIB) 2018

    I think it’s reasonable to expect a strong lineup from Beni nowadays, it’s one of the few that tends to regularly deliver, hence pre-paying. I understand your point of view but if you’re an indie fan it’s not the greatest considering this is exactly the type of music you’d expect at Beni, and the bands in that bracket are poor. You can’t just tell moaners to pipe down, it’s fair enough if the lineup sucks. Having said that, what was said above about treating it as a holiday that happens to have live bands is absolutely correct. Just need to find out what else is on aside from the bands and in the days leading up to the main nights themselves. Ultimately it’s what you make it and it will still be a quality week!
