It’s almost mid-February, less than half a year till Benicassim 2014 festival in Spain, but so far zero artists have been confirmed for the upcoming lineup. According to their official Facebook page it’s only a matter of days but posters and rumors are starting to spread all over the blogosphere.
Let’s start with the first poster –
Somehow, this poster seems very legit. Prince and Kanye West would be a huge headliners but it’s a long shot (especially there isn’t any scheduled European tour for them in the near future) but it’s defiantly a possibility.
However, here’s the catch –Benicassim lineup never shares the same artists with Primavera Sound for obvious reasons (competition between the two, although the target audience is completely different). That’s why I was surprised to find here Haim, The Black Lips, Disclosure and Chvrches. I would be very surprise to see them as well on the actual poster. Next!
The Second Poster -
Although it looks like a Photoshop, it does makes sense. Kasbian and Kings of Leon are a classic headliners for Benicassim and because Outkast won’t eventually be in Barcelona, I guess the only explanation is they were booked for Beni. Other names such as Elbow, Broken Bells and Bombay Bicycle Club won’t be much of a surprise. Yet again, Kanye West? Let’s wait and see.
The Third Poster -
And this is the last one I found, with a minor changes:
Let me skeptical again, Foals will be in the Primavera Sound lineup as well.
How long should we wait? Days? Weeks? Months? With so many exceptions I won’t dare to take the festival’s promoters place at the moment.
