At The Drive-In, Maccabees, Bat For Lashes added to Benicassim 2012 bill - ticket details

Omar Rodriguez-Lopez also speaks to NME about the band's reasons for reuniting

At The Drive-In, Maccabees, Bat For Lashes added to Benicassim 2012 bill - ticket details
At The Drive-In, The Maccabees and Bat For Lashes have been added to the bill for this summer's Benicassim festival.

The new additions join headliners The Stone Roses and Florence And The Machine, as well as New Order, Crystal Castles, The Vaccines, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, Miles Kane and Bombay Bicycle Club, who have all been previously confirmed for the festival, which runs from July 12-15 next summer.

The show will be At The Drive-In's first European appearance in over a decade and their guitarist Omar Rogriguez-Lopez told NME that the band's decision to reunite was partly a financial one.

He said:

We're not getting any younger and there's been an offer of money every year. You can't avoid that. You'd be a fool and a politician to pretend that wasn't part of it.


The guitarist also spoke about how he was feeling about the prospect of a reunion and admitted things "were going to be weird".

He said of this: "Obviously it's going to be weird. It's like getting back with your ex-wife, only in this case there are four ex-wives!"

Also added to the bill are Dave Clarke, Little Dragon, Lisa Hannigan and Ham Sandwich and a host of others.
