You’ve got your passport at the ready, you’ve had a look at The Garage Flower guide to Benicassim, and you’re all set. This time next week you’ll be in sunny Spain looking forward to a brilliant weekend. So, what’s in store in terms of music?
Festival Thursdays usually see a handful of acts warming you up for the rest of the weekend, but not at Beni. For many people, Thursday night will bring one of the festival highlights as it serves up a real treat. 4 acts that will be popular are Stormzy, The Courteeners, The Weeknd and The Jesus and Mary Chain. With a little bit for all tastes, it’s set to be a perfect start to Benicassim 2017.
Friday will kick off for many people as soon as the arena gates open for The Sherlocks. Blossoms, Foals and Deadmau5 will all appear on the Las Palmas main stage on Friday evening. If you do fancy a look elsewhere, you’re not short of acts to see, Temples and Theme Park will also be popular away from the headline acts.
Saturday must compete with the best main stage lineup of any festival in Europe this year. Liam Gallagher, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Biffy Clyro come one after another as Beni hits its peak. If that’s not enough, Libertine Pete Dochery is on the Visa stage, clashing with RHCP! I’ll leave that one to you, we’re spoilt for choice…
Sunday sees another tricky decision for some, with Declan McKenna and The View playing at the same time. That’s before Slaves, Years and Years, Crystal Fighters and Tiga! And the small matter of Kasabian, on the back of their hit new album they’re bound to be a festival highlight on the final day.

If you’re not listening to music, in the arena there’s always South Beach; the internationally famous pool party that is always packed throughout the night. Its the place to be away from the main stages to really get that full Beni experience.
