The New York Dolls have been added to the line up for this year’s Benicàssim festival.

The band will play a mixture of new material from their 2006 album One Day It Will Please Us to Remember Even This and older classics like ‘Jet Boy’ and ‘Trash’.

The New Pornographers, who were due to play at the festival, have cancelled their European tour citing personal reasons.

Other additions to the Spanish festival, including American indie duo, Mates of State and The Courteeners, will join the newly reformed My Bloody Valentine, Babyshambles, American Music Club and Leonard Cohen who is touring the world for the first time in fifteen years.
