July 16th 2009… We got off the plane at around 8am and there was not a word between the two of us, other than a sleepy grumble as we crossed the runway to the terminal. The air was muggy and hot and the sky hidden by grey clouds, as if we had somehow meandered into a steam room. For the second part of the journey it was our task to drive our rental car from Barcelona airport to Castellón, the next town down from Benicassim.
Benicàssim are proud to announce that The Killers are the latest band confirmed to headline the 4 day event in Spain this year. The Electro Indie Rockers from Las Vegas, who have sold over 12 million albums to date, will be in good company as they join Oasis, Franz Ferdinand, Kings of Leon and Paul Weller in what is going to be the greatest festival of 2009. The headliners are as follows:
Yes, that’s right! It’s coming around to that time of year again; Everyone is freezing cold, had enough of the shite English weather and wondering what they can possibly organise so that their lives have, at least, one event to look forward to in the near future.
