We just thought we’d clear up a question that we get asked all the time. Benicassim town (unfotunately) doesn’t have its own airport however there’s a whole load of nearby cities that do! The closest of which is Valencia (VLC – airport code for when you’re doing price comparison checks online), this is about 1 hr away from the Benicassim festival site – unfortunately for us northerners there doesn’t seem to be any direct flights to VLC from any northern UK airport, this means you’ve either got to fork out £200+ for flights or fly to one of the other nearby cities. Right, yes, everybody goes for the latter option. So your next best airports in terms of proximity to Benicassim are:
1) Valencia (VLC) – about 90km (1hr) drive from Benicassim
2) Barcelona (BCN or BLA) – about 260km (2.5hr) drive from Benicassim
3) Alicante (ALC) – about 280km (2.6hr) drive from Benicassim
4) Madrid (MAD) – about 436km (4.5hr) drive from Benicassim
Obviously all of the above depends on how fast you drive and how busy the roads are. We’d obviously recommend taking it easy, get there a few days early so there’s no mad rush and you can afford to get lost/go the scenic route.
