Benicàssim festival adds huge new names to its 2017 lineup

21 December 2016, 16:06 | Written by Laurence Day

Benicàssim has added Canadian R&B/pop megastar The Weeknd and UK rockers Foals to its 2017 lineup.

The two new names join headliners Red Hot Chili Peppers at the Spanish bash.

While The Weeknd's headline spot won't raise many eyebrows - he's doing the rounds next summer, it seems - the addition of Foals is a curveball. The band have wound down their antics since wrapping up their What Went Down tour earlier this year, and their new Beni date is just one of two live shows for 2017 so far.

FIB Benicàssim 2017 takes place along the Mediterranean coast (between Valencia and Barcelona) between 13-16 July. Tickets are on sale now.
