3+1 of the biggest music festivals that will make you want to book your holidays in Spain for 2016


Spanish festivals

Oh the sun sea and music! An irresistible combination of funvibes, beats and riffs for all to savour awaits under the Spanish sunshine. What more could you ask for? For music fans, the sunny Iberian Peninsula offers quite a few world class festivals. If you plan on having your holidays in Spain in 2016 and combine them with an open air festival, you will never want to drag your belongings along on a muddy field somewhere back home again. The acts are world class and the settings are what make Spain’s music festivals stand apart from anything else in Europe. We had a hard time distinguishing between festivals as Spain has lots to offer, however here are four of the best which will cover most of the tastes of fans!

Benicassim FIB

Probably the best and biggest festival on Spanish soil, Benicassim is hosted in the sunny Costa Ahazar and has been a continuous winner during the past 20 years of its history. The lineup this year is great as always and caters to most of fans. Get a taste of the incredible rhymes of hip hop phenomenon Kendrick Lamar, shake that booty to the wild beats of Major Lazer or bob along to the spacey beats of Jamie XX. For the indy crowd, the all favourite Macabees along with Bloc Party and Mac Demarco will be performing onstage and are guaranteed to make you go wild with their innovative rhythms and melodies. All that happens in a huge site with camping facilities and villas so book your tickets at fiberfib.com and become a part of the madness!

Primavera Sound (Barcelona)

Another all-time crowd favourite and a strong contestant in the arena of Festivals, Primavera Sound will be back this year with loads of music for the lucky ones to have booked their holidays in Spain in 2016! Despite not announcing its lineup yet in order to build the tension, we are sure that the folks organising it will have us up for a surprise if last year’s lineup is something to go by! The indy pantheon has been going on strong for the past 15 years with names ranging from upbeat Black Keys and The Strokes to the darker Arcade Fire and world renowned The Cure! Hosted on the sunny coast of Parc del Forum, this place is amazing to be in let alone party to your favourite music. For your tickets looky here (address)
