NEW ROCK FESTIVAL FOR SPAIN FROM BENICASSIM PROMOTERS!
Music Festivals plc, a company which owns, develops and produces music festivals, including Hop Farm in the UK and Benicassim in Spain has announced a new festival, COSTA DE FUEGO, which will be its second festival in Spain and devoted to hard rock and heavy metal.
The Costa de Feugo festival will take place on 20th and 21st July 2012, a week after the Group’s FIB Festival in Benicassim, and held on part of the same site as the FIB Festival with a capacity of 30,000.
The festival will be headlined by Guns N’ Roses and Marilyn Manson and feature over 40 nationally and internationally recognised artists over three stages.
The two-day tickets for the festival, including four days free camping on the site from 18th July to 22nd July 2012, will go on sale from this morning with the first 5,000 tickets on sale at €80.
The location and timing of the festival will enable the Group to significantly reduce the costs of hosting the festival as it will utilise the existing infrastructure of the FIB Festival.
Vince Power, Chief Executive of Music Festivals plc, commented:
“There is great appetite for hard rock and heavy metal music in Western Europe and we have been working towards putting this new festival together for some time. I am delighted to have secured Guns N’ Roses and Marilyn Manson as the headline acts. The launch of a rock festival in Spain also makes great strategic sense for the Group as we will be able to leverage our existing infrastructure commitment at the FIB Festival.”
