Stayed last year and it is pricey but probs worth it imo. The year before stayed in an Airbnb a bit out and it was a pain. But in that hotel could see the stage from our balcony and could walk no bother. Hotel itself is pretty nice too.

Cheers. Usually stay in marina d’or but it might be the most unwelcoming sh*thole on the planet. Reviews on tripadvisor look decent so will probably just go for it.

Any chance of Foals and/or Catfish returning this year?

I know Catfish played last year, but they do have a history of doing it (Liam G/Biffy)

Why would The Strokes headline 3 Spanish festivals tho? The Toad just talks shite and probs best to ignore what they say.

Yeah as much as i want it to, i don't think its happening. Based on that poll i'm pretty sure were going to end up with Mumford and Sons unfortunately.

I think that if they play Benicassim, they're going to have a really nice crowd and it's going to be huge. Party acts are deeply anchored in the Spanish festival culture, like that wonderful band playing at FIB 2019 called La Maravillosa Orquesta Del Alcohol (la MODA), they are a bit like local old Mumford, and they raise big crowds like other Spanish party acts (Bongo Botrako, La Pegatina, Txarango etc). Mumford and Sons have something in their music which fits in that kind of acts. And they were not broadcasted all day long on the radio like in England.

It would be awesome, Catfish was the best show of 2018 (in my opinion).

Think that was my fourth or so time seeing them and easily the worst show I've seen them put on. There's normally a lot more energy in their shows, biggest disappointment for me last year closely followed by the kooks.

It was my first time and I really enjoyed it. Maybe if they play this year will have a better show

I hope so because they are a great band and are usually really up for it. Thats interesting, I saw the Arctic Monkeys last year for the first time and loved it but a lot of people were disappointed with their shows, suppose its all new if its the first time. FIB do have a habit of rebooking acts and with their new material coming out (and possibly a slot at R&L) they seem likely.

Big announcement either this coming Wednesday or the one after, surely. 

most likely Wednesday 23rd, i believe @gedkelly did an investigation on the most probable date using past announcements and that was the date that was most likely

Lollapalooza Paris have an announcement this week which will probably give us a good idea of who to expect as we shared both The Killers and Travis Scott with them last year.

Being realistic, I'd be pleased with - Post Malone, LDR, The Strokes, Tame Impala!

As for what we'll probably end up with; Stormzy, LDR, Mumford and The 1975 bumped up to headliners.

Shivered when I read that second list.

We haven't booked yet as we are unsure if it's going to be a good line up. 

Don't worry too much about the lineup, you'll have a blinding time regardless. One of the best things is finding bands/artists/djs you wouldn't usually listen to and having a blast

This would be, arguably, the weakest since 2014, so based on the fact this is their big 25th Anniversary event, I'd expect something better than this.  I'm still holding out for either Strokes/AMs/FFs to headline Sat night which, with Stormzy, LDR and Tame Impala, would be a decent set of 4, for me.

The FIB will surely confirm new bands next week (January 23) because an international tourism fair (FITUR) is held between January 23-27 in Madrid. They always confirm bands on that date to make it coincide with the fair and thus be able to promote the festival in it.

Macklemore, Chemical Bros/The 1975, LDR (or P!nk to replace), Mumford & Sons.

 

Courteeners, Robyn, Razorlight, The Amazons, Sundara Karma, Jorja Smith, Camelphat & Tom Grennan all to appear across the festival.

My ideal set of headliners would be Foo Fighters, LDR+party act or rap act, The Strokes and Robbie Williams
