Benicassim (FIB) 2020

Recommended Posts

imo it's a good line up for Beni standards (was never a very good festival IMO line up wise) , typical EDM djs and solid pop/indie

That has to be for a day ticket surely...

I don't know, Arenal Sound festival also near Benicassim is managed by the same company as FIB and also has pretty big names (different style though) and a 4 day ticket started at 40€, although it quickly went up to more than 100€ since it sold out in less than a day

€49 for a full weekend ticket, plus €25 if you’re camping.

Regardless of what you think of the lineup, that’s a fucking great price

It's 49€ for the 4 days, but the price will increase a lot as more tickets get sold, so if you've decided to go make sure to buy them early since it can go as high as 150€.

Even if you ignore everything below the 3rd section (my eyes won't allow me to read anyway), that was a bloody good line up.

How the fuck is this possible?

Looks like this kind of price strategy is what guarantees a sell out with Arenal Sound every year, wonder if it’ll work here.

The initial reaction on Instagram seems quite positive.

The company that manages the Arenal Sound festival (also in Castellón) bought the FIB this summer. Every year the tickets for Arenal Sound start really cheap but the price goes up really really quickly (like 50€ more in half an hour) and they sold out in a few hours. This year the FIB has adopted the same method for selling tickets and camping as Arenal Sound and in the website it says that the price will go up. I don't think the tickets will sold out in a day (or maybe at all) but it will sure get much more expensive

Yeah seems wrong to me, that's less than the typical day ticket price. Maybe it's 1000 tickets only or something.

The modern FIB crowd would burn stuff and riot if this was the lineup today. It used to be like Primavera look, epic shit.

Yes, it's really few tickets. A few weeks ago tickets for Arenal went on sale at 10am for 40€ and a friend bought them at 10:30am for almost 90€, at that point it's luck more than anything.

I feel very greedy saying this, but how many more announcements could we expect? seems quite full already by FIB standards last few years

They said on Instagram that there were "still many more artists to announce"

Honestly this seems pretty good - really balanced and the headliners are good for lots of genres. That Friday is seriously stacked with two great headliners. I think Saturday is certainly the weakest day (although i'm not Spanish). If I can get people organised to go I will definitely be hitting this up at that price its insane.
