The more festival fashion and brilli brilli did not lack outfit young women who flooded the huge concert hall with the most stylish and striking outfits. Shorts combined with tops, braids in the hair and braids in fashion to look pretty these days, but above all comfortable to withstand so many hours of festival dancing until almost dawn with sneakers .

The organization announced in a first assessment that the place will receive during these four days of macro event approximately 180,000 attendees. The audience profile this year is mainly national, from the Valencian Community, Madrid, Catalonia, Aragon, the Basque Country… a large part of the national territory, although there are also there are foreigners, about 26% of the total audience. Groups of friends predominate and many rehearse each year. For most of them, the FIB has become one of those unmissable evenings of the year. This is the case of Michael Benavidesa resident of Benicàssim who does not miss any edition, with friends like Andrea Rioli, who, although Italian living in Spain, frequently visits Benicàssim as one of his favorite destinations, along with other fellow festival stalwarts. And it is that although you can see people from many different cities for those of Benicàssim it is an unmissable summer event, a contest that they have seen evolve over time and with which they have grown.

This is also the case for some artists, who manage to realize their dream of living it from another angle, on stage, as happened on Friday at guitarricadelafuentewho ended the concert in tears, delighted to perform in his native country at one of the best festivals in the country.
