All my mates had been waiting to get tickets, I've been waiting for money to come in, but as soon as we saw the announcement, my mate got mine and his tickets, psyched! Can't wait!

around May, I think. But my memory ain't what it used to be. If you look on last years thread it'll probably come up on there somewhere.

Been Beni 06, 08, 09, 10 and 11 so was going to give it a miss this year but might have to re-think that now after the stone roses announcement. Don't know If I can spend another week in that Irish bar listening to the same 5 songs over and over again! (Hot Chip pun intended!)

Can anyone tell me when the hotels generally release rooms in Beni? I think the last time we booked it was around Jan. Is it still the same?

the camping is grotty smelly and you will feel disgusting... but you HAVE to do it. you meet amazing friendly people and it flings you into the mad festival feeling... you wake up hungover and INCREDIBLY hot but nothing the showers cant sort out. the showers have the coldest water i have ever felt but will cure a hangover quicker than you can say "to stone roses!"
last year before heading off to the music the whole campsite used to erupt in singing the most well known song of the headliner (someone always had a guitar)
the music finishes about 6am. but the headliner finishes at 2/3ish, the less known bands start after now until 6ish.... most nights you stay until 6am dancing to the dj's playing everyones favourite tunes.
benicassim is an amazing, friendly, insane festival and i would 100% recommend camping for benicassim virgins, then decide what to do the following year (because you WILL be back) most people there are british, but everyone is your friend as you all instantly become "fibers"
do not miss out!
also can not praise eufest enough for coach travel from alicante to benicassim

Hi everyone, does anyone know when there's likely to be another lineup announcement, or when the tickets go up in price?

I'm wondering if I should just hold out to check the lineup's alright before I buy a ticket... but how long would I be waiting?

Cheers, sounds incredible.

We were always going to camp, just wanted to know what it's like.

If it's half as good as you make out i am sure we will have an incredible time!

We are still waiting on the hotels to sort out their allocations for next year - they always take ages. Hoping to have some available soon, but by Jan there should definitely be something out there. In the meantime, we have got our hands on some 2-4 person apartments at BN1001 and BN1002, which are available to book now. More - including 4-6 and 6-8 person ones - to follow as soon as we get them.

maybe Florence will headline the Thursday, I've never been to Beni before but I seem to think they'll have smallest headliner on the thursday

so

FATM
The Killers?
The Stone Roses

One more here? A random guess based on that they didn't headline there this year and I can't see when they ever have, Foo Fighters.


The Killers are rumored for here, r&l and t, t usually share with reading, beni has shared quite a bit one with reading too and also t.
