Picture this: Benicàssim 2023, a festival so hot it made the Sahara look like a freezer aisle. If you missed it, don’t worry, I’ve got the scoop – and it’s more thrilling than finding out your blind date is actually Ryan Gosling in disguise.
First off, let’s talk about the weather. It was so scorching, I saw a DJ frying an egg on his turntable. And the crowd? They came decked out in everything from glitter and rainbows to, well, practically nothing. If fashion police were real, they’d have a field day here.
The music was louder than my mum yelling at me to clean my room. Headliners took the stage like they owned it – and with performances that good, they might as well have. The bass dropped so hard, it registered on the Richter scale. Even the seismologists were like, “Was that an earthquake or just the sick beats?”
But let’s talk about the real MVPs: the food vendors. With more variety than my last Tinder swipes, they had everything from vegan delights to burgers that would make a cow weep with pride. And hydration? You’d think water was the new champagne the way people guzzled it down. Hydration stations were more crowded than a Black Friday sale at a TV store.
Now, Benicàssim 2024 – hold onto your hats, or better yet, your tent poles. If the rumours are true, it will be more epic than accidentally liking your ex’s photo from 2014. We’re talking about a lineup so stellar it’ll make the Milky Way look like a backstreet alley. From Grammy winners to indie darlings, the stage will be lit – and I don’t just mean the fancy lights.
Accommodation? Forget five-star hotels; the real experience is in the camping. Picture thousands of tents set up like a game of Tetris gone wild. And for those who prefer glamping, it’s like camping but with less dirt and more Instagram.
As for the travel – imagine a pilgrimage of music lovers, all journeying to this Mecca of melodies. Trains, planes, and automobiles filled with folks who’ve got more festival gear than a camping store.
And let’s not forget the new attractions. Rumour has it there’s a ‘silent disco’ where you dance to music played on headphones. It’s like watching a mime convention, only with better beats.
So, gear up, music lovers. Benicàssim 2024 is coming, and it’s going to be more electrifying than sticking a fork in a toaster – not that I’d know anything about that, Mom.
