Band join The Killers and Queens Of The Stone Age at Spanish festival
Arctic Monkeys have been confirmed as the latest headliner for this year’s Benicàssim festival.
The Sheffield band join The Killers and Queens Of The Stone Age on the line-up after they were confirmed to appear late last year. The other acts confirmed to appear at the Spanish festival between Jul 18-21 today are Azealia Banks, Jake Bugg, Palma Violets, Echo Lake, Splashh and Swim Deep.
Early bird tickets for Benicàssim are now sold out. The next batch of 5,000 are now on sale, available at £145, and this price will remain either until March 30, 2013 or when the 5,000 tickets are sold out, when ticket prices will then increase. As well as weekend tickets, there are also VIP tickets on sale (£325) as well as the entrance to VillaCamp (£73). Both Weekend tickets and VIP tickets include eight days free camping in the Campfest camping area from 15 – 22 July.
Benicàssim was headlined by The Stone Roses, Florence + The Machine, New Order and Bob Dylan in 2012 with performances from At The Drive-In, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Bombay Bicycle Club, Crystal Castles and The Vaccines amongst many across the festival.
