Benicassim has long been an international favourite, thanks to the site's close proximity to the beach and the option of lots of free camping either side of the actual festival. It's a grand idea to book time off around these dates and have yourself a good old Spanish holiday – plus there's always a great beach party to finish off your hedonistic long weekend. If, incidentally, music is also your bag, Arctic Monkeys, The Killers and Queens of The Stone Age all headline. Combined with a supporting cast of world-beating emcees, anthemic indie stalwarts and groovy pop, this line up screams music fun in the sun.
