Benicassim Day Two

The International Festival de Benicassim is now onto it’s second day of the long weekend’s rock and dance festival.

Last night Iggy and the Stooges and Bright Eyes opened the festival with two rocking sets, along with the many dance areas that warmed up the festival crowd for the weekend.

Tonight (July 20) will see new-wave original revolutionaries Devo play the headline slot on the mainstage. We are expecting the full boiler-suit robotics of their recent show at London’s Royal Festival Hall as part of Jarvis’ Meltdown – only bigger!

Also on the Fiberfib mainstage tonight are the amazing Wilco, and Dinosaur Jnr – returningto Benicassim after a triumphant show here two years ago.

The nocturnal nature of the Valencian festival means that artists only go on stage from around 6.30pm – with Devo due on stage at 1.25am.

Early evening performances include the magnificent piano show tunes of Mr Rufus Wainwright and a rare appearance from Antony and the Johnsons.
