Established in 1994 and now in its 14th year, the International Benicàssim Festival, FIB Heineken, near Valencia, Spain is back for 2007 from Thursday 17th until Sunday 20th July. With camping thrown in with your ticket price, all night music over 4 days, and sited just walking distance from the beach and a huge water park, there has probably never been a better reason to pack your bikini in your rucksack and get on a plane...

Benicassim has something to offer across the whole musical spectrum, as indie and rock bands rub shoulders with DJs and more experimental music projects. A number of acts are confirmed, including My Bloody Valentine, Leonard Cohen, Morrissey, Babyshambles, Siouxsie Sioux, Jose Gonzalez, My Bloody Valentine, Roisin Murphy, The National, The Rumble Strips, Spiritualized, and more.
