FIB Benicassim Valencia
The summer is here and with it come many music festivals all around Europe. There are festivals for all tastes, from electronic music to reggae and rock. However, the most important one when it comes to alternative music is the one that takes place every year in Benicassim, the FIB, which is held close to the city of Valencia.
FIB means Festival Internacional de Benicassim (self explanatory), and it takes place during the month of July in this town in the region of Valencia. Most of the music is alternative and indie, bringing the most famous artists from around the world of this genre, having had on stage names such as Leonard Cohen to The Strokes or Oasis, as well as the best up-and-coming bands. Even so, at night, when the concerts finish late at night, the DJs take over the turntables and play the best electronic music so you can party until the early hours.
The good thing about this festival is that, during the day, you can relax on the beach, which is only a few yards away from where the festival is held, where you can also camp. The many stages it has are filled during the four days of the festival, from Thursday to Sunday, with people who come to enjoy the best music and a few fun days of summer.
So there you have it, if you like alternative music and you´re looking for a festival and a destination for your summer holidays, rent apartments in Valencia and make the short trip to Benicassim to come and listen to the best artists on the independent music scene from around the world.
