A beachfront location in sunny Spain and big name acts make FIB a brilliant hybrid of seaside holiday and music festival, this year celebrating its 20th edition.
FIB’s tried-and-tested combination of sun, sea and sounds has been pulling in festivalgoers from around the world for almost two decades – 2014 was the 20th edition of the festival, once simply called Benicàssim and now known as Festival International Benicàssim (FIB).
Thanks to its beachside location between Valencia and Barcelona on the eastern coast of Spain, many people treat FIB as a summer holiday as much as a festival, and it shows – lazy sun-worshipping during the day gives way to music and hedonism from early evening to the morning.
If you’re looking for a beach holiday and a festival rolled into one, look no further than FIB.
Pitching your tent in the sunniest spot going is a classic error you won’t make twice. Either bring a gazebo to rig up a makeshift sun shade for your tent, find a palm tree to pitch under, or shell out for a spot in ‘Villacamp’, with extra shading.
