Benicassim 2012

I recently got back from an amazing holiday. My boyfriend and I went to Benicassim Festival in Spain and then went to Barcelona for a few days after. As I have so many photos and outfit shots for you guys I have split the holiday in two. 

Part One - Benicassim.

If your not familiar with Benicassim it is a spanish festival in the small town of Benicassim. We flew out to Alicante early tuesday morning and had pre booked buses to take us to the festival. You can also get a train or hire a car. After about 3 hours on the bus we arrived and were given our wristbands and somewhere to camp fairly quickly, definitely quicker then other festivals ive been to. It was a little annoying when we wanted to camp but there were wardens trying making everyone camp in lines, however we ended up being lucky and were surrounded by british people and we all became a little family. As we arrived at Benicassim on the tuesday and the music didn't start till thursday we used the time to explore the town and every night they had street parties with bands and DJ's playing till the early hours. At Benicassim the music doesn't start till the evening, mostly bands we wanted to see began at about 9pm and went on until about 4am. Then to recover we spent almost every day at the beach and going for meals in the town. There is a shuttle bus that takes festival goers to the town and beach and I would high recommend getting a bus pass as a walk into town is wayyy to far and even further to the beach. There is a waterpark which is a 20 minute walk away from the camp and was about 20 euros each plus about 10 euros each if you want a sunbed. 
We took our own tent with us and then left it there plus other camping stuff so we didn't have to pay for the extra baggage on the way home. On the Monday morning everyone is ushered out of the camp to the train station where buses are to all different airports and parts of spain.

The headlines were perfect for me and my boyfriend this year. I was very disappointed when we heard Florence had cancelled but all the other bands made up for it.

  1. I really really really wanted to go this year as I haven't been yet but couldn't get the money together. It looks and sound like you had a blast! You've definitely convinced me to go next year!
