Share This Article:

It’s no doubt Festival Internacional de Benicàssim (FIB Benicàssim) is one of the continent’s most famous and loved music festivals, repeatedly featuring huge headliners each year on Spain’s Costa del Azahar.

Now approaching an (almost) quarter of a century anniversary, the festival returns as a four-day affair from the 19th-22nd July.


This year the festival boasts an impressive multi-genre line-up, this year including The Killers, Liam Gallagher, Travis Scott and Pet Shop Boys as headliners, along with Justice, Two Door Cinema Club, Bastille, Madness, The Vaccines, Catfish and the Bottlemen, J Hus and many more taking to the stage.

Notably, one of the most iconic bands of their generation, The Killers, are no stranger to topping a festival bill. Having an iconic 5 studio album discography, the Las Vegas band are a must see. Also, after playing an epic solo set at Benicàssim 2017, Liam Gallagher returns as a headliner on the back of his album As You Were. Travis Scott is a somewhat anomaly to the other top indie acts, yet, he is not one to be missed. With number one albums and being renowned for his live shows, the American rapper, singer, songwriter, and producer will headline the Thursday night of this year's festival. And lastly, one of the most successful duos in music history, Pet Shop Boys, will bring tracks like 'West End Girls' to the stage.

With music often starting in the late afternoon and running until the early hours, Benicàssim makes the perfect destination for both a festival and a holiday. As a town, the location is a beach resort on the Spanish coast between Valencia and Barcelona. The stunning coastal location is more-or-less guaranteed warm temperatures, making the varied programme ideal for relaxing in the sun by day and partying to the music of your choosing through the night. July see’s average highs of 30 degrees Celsius, and lows of 20°C – it’s easy to see why the festival proves so popular time and time again.

Tickets are priced are priced at 155€, subject to booking fees, for four days (including camping from 19th to 22nd July), or a four-day VIP pass will cost a slightly higher 300€.
