Is this a good festival?

Always fancied trying a festival in Spain but I've read a lot of very mixed reports about this years event (in Barcelona).

Yea, this is an awesome 2 days of beer, sunshine, music and friends. Have been for the past 2 years (Madrid) and both have been wikkid.

It was moved last year to accommodate for the fact that T In The Park/Oxygen moved back a week and they get all the best bands. TITP is on the 10/11/12 July next year so i'd assume Summercase will be 17/18th

I love it. If you just want bands and beer its the best.

Its on concrete, but the setting for the second stage is lovely. It goes on until 5am.

Anyone got the dates for next yet? Please please please be on the same weekend as this year!!!!!

OK, let's see some facts and rumours.

Fact: Movistar, its main sponsor, will drop its sponsorship budget dramatically for 2009.

Rumour: The amount devoted to festival sponsorship is small enough to say that it will NOT support Summercase.

Fact: The economy is doing bad everywhere. In Spain it's even worse. Bad times to look for a new main sponsor.

Rumour: Few possible big companies may be interested in taking the lead. Vodafone is already with Benicassim. Most beer companies (other niche for festival sponsorship) are already signed by other festivals. Therefore, it will be hard to replace Movistar.

Fact: Sinnamon is in financial problems. Many overdues, has reduced staff recently.

Rumour: Sinnamon holds the "brand" Summercase and still has the license for the name Creamfields in Spain. They could sell their brand / license. The festival would exist, although nobody knows how much it would look like the "original" Summercase.

Fact: Dates play against Summercase. T in the Park will be on July 11th+, and Benicassim will be one week after. No much room for Summercase then.

Fact: Summercase, Sinnamon or any other related websites have no news at all about 2009. Benicassim's early-bird tickets will end on January 15th, when many festival goers will make a decision.

In view of the above, it is most likely that there won't be any Summercase this year, although everything is still possible at this time.

Has there been any confirmation of whether Summercase is going ahead or not yet?

I'm sure dates had been announced this time last year!

The main reason for summercase not to happen again is trying to eat the part of the cake Benicassim had,it would have been better to keep the old dates, a week before beni,benicassim has a very strong mark in spain and as i can see they just organising a line up for the british crowd,in the early days u cud se more spanish,french ,even german bands,but its seems this year it will be a big percentage of people coming from the isles,personally this line up is not very original.
