This year's Benicassim Festival saw thousands of revellers scorch in Valencia's summer sun. The Streets, The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys and Arcade Fire all headlined the non-stop, partying-through-the-night festival. Here's some of our favourite pics - watch video interviews and walk-ons from the site at NME.COM/festivals.
