I'm considering Beni for next year, been told that Gorillaz are likely to play there. Fingers crossed for LCD and The National.

Hi! Im not sure if you guys can help on this, theres a group of 7 of us going to Benicassim festival next summer and we are planning on staying in Apartamentos Vaccines Azahar.
When you go to book it says we need 2 apartments because its a 6 person limit per apartment. As theres only 7 of us, to try and keep costs down we want to just book the one apartment.
Before we book does anyone know if that might be possible? Our plan was to buy a single camping ticket for the 7th person but they would stay in our apartment. Its our first year going so we’re not sure if the tickets are connected with your accommodation some how and that one person might get shafted…

Your fest ticket automatically gives you camping mate , have you considered booking one apartment and the 7th person just sleeps on a settee or something ?

They won't know if there's an extra person. It's a central reception for all the apartments about a 5 min walk away so they'll never actually see how many there are. Only problem is that the apartments are quite tight with 6 folk, so 7 wouldn't be very comfortable.

I wonder what effect the shite going down in Catalonia might have on FiB and other festivals in Catalonia.

It's not beyond impossible that they'll be no flights in or out, and an economic blockade on the Catalonia borders.

Benicassim (Castellón) doesnt belong to Catalonia. 

Benicassim is placed in Comunidad Valenciana (Comunidad Autónoma whose provinces are Alicante, Valencia and Castellón)

Nope, 2015 blur were the last headliner to be announced and 2016 had major lazor and Kendrick before muse were announced

What bands/artists are potential headliners for 2018?

I reckon that 2 of either Foo Fighters, Gorillaz, Noel G's HFBs, Arctic Monkeys or Arcade Fire will be headliners for Benicassim 2018.

Alright do they follow a certain format like 1 pop act 2 rock bands and an indie/alternative option for headliners or just whoever is relevant?

No, there's never usually any format/logic to any announcements, just whoever is confirmed/signed-up.  Often it's to coincide with the artist making another EU festival announcements.
