Summer festivals

Benicassim

Summertime...and the living is easy. Which means it's time once more for outdoor music festivals, and across Spain there are shows for every taste.

From Andalucia to the Basque country, this is the season for music festivals here and this year sees some big names playing: Arctic Monkeys, Coldplay and (possibly) Amy Winehouse are among those booked to perform at various venues. So forget the mud of Glastonbury. You don't need wellies for any of these events, but you will definitely need the suncream.
