Benicassim tickets go onsale

The Spanish festival gears up

Tickets for the 2006 Benicassim festival have gone onsale.

Passes for the festival are now up for grabs, giving fans the chance to see bands such as Morrissey, Franz Ferdinand and Depeche Mode under the Spanish summer sun.

Other acts on the event’s bill include The Rakes, Echo And The Bunnymen, Jay-Jay Johanson, The Sunday Driver, Venus, Dionysos and Teitur.

Benicassim – now in its twelfth year – will take place between July 20-23.

The festival normally takes place at the beginning of August, however the town’s mayor said the reason behind the move was to keep the bash away from the Spanish holidays in August.

More UK visitors are expected next year, as Glastonbury is taking a year off.
