How's that Beni hangover treating you? The Streets, Anna Calvi and Congotronics Vs Rockers all blew us away on Thursday - who did you enjoy?

Let us know by commenting below.

Right then, here's what you should do on Friday at Benicassim:

1. Watch some comedy... in English or Spanish
For the first time ever, comedians will be hitting Benicassim as well as bands and Friday and Saturday is when to catch them. With classic stand-up, musical humour and visual comedy all promised from the best acts across the UK and Spain - it'll be a great addition to the line-up. On the Jack Daniel's Stage, on Friday from 7.30pm to 8.30pm in Spanish and from 11.45pm to 00.45am in English, and on Saturday from 7.30pm to 8.30pm in English and from 11.45pm to 00.45am in Spanish.


2. Go go-karting
There's a go-kart track to the side of the site, if you haven't already noticed. Our video team have spent all of Thursday challenging the rest of us to a race. They're definitely going down, and you should all come along to laugh at them when they lose.

3. Catch Friendly Fires
Ed or Hawaiian dancers? Who’s the better at throwing shapes? You decide at their electric Benicassim gig. On the Maravillas Stage.



4. Don't do this, or if you are going to do this, make sure someone's filming you

Festivals + sunshine + alcohol + dehydration + flip flops =



Any excuse to embed that clip in another blog.

5. Watch headliners The Strokes

The band recently posted the video for the second single from 'Angles' online and we can expect big things from them at Beni from the sounds of it.
